In the 1930s, the U.S. government issued a hobby to each citizen to keep them entertained until NASA finished working out the bugs in kissing. Self-determine a new pastime with today's Groupon: for $44, you can zip through the trees on a two-and-a-half-hour guided tour at Scream Time Zipline in Zionville (an $89 value).
Located in the gorgeous High Country outside of Boone, Scream Time Zipline lets the average individual fulfill superhero fantasies and practice extreme vertigo therapy as they soar above the forest floor at speeds as fast as 50 mph. Led by a team of rigorously certified guides who've been trained by a band of hyperintelligent flying squirrels, patrons will float, fly, and glide from tree top to tree top on zip lines between 450 and 800 feet long. Scream Time uses a custom Pinzgauer six-wheel drive for maximum smoothness and speed. Exorcise more tenacious speed demons by booking an extra ride on the Super Zip, a triple-wide line woven from fibers harvested from Odin the All-Father’s beard and chest that stretches almost half a mile toward the horizon (an additional $29). Participants should wear closed-toe shoes and avoid baggy clothing and dangling jewelry.
TripAdvisors give Scream Time Zipline an average of four owl eyes:
- My whole family was there during the Christmas Holiday and we ALL had a blast. The staff (starting with reservations) was extremely professional, safety conscious, and a great deal of fun. – MetroParkAtlanta
- It was our first time on a zipline and it couldn't have been better. Staff and owners are amazing, great customer service, very friendly. – cws89
