Families and friends descend upon Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing to spend a day careening on its zipline and scaling its climbing wall, supervised by a dedicated, certified staff of outdoor adventurers. The 900-foot zipline launches anthropoid projectiles through tree-topped forestscapes, sending them safely soaring through the sky without the haunted drink carts and mandatory flying goggles endured on commercial flights. After the adrenaline-pumping ride, outdoors folks embarrass gravity as they ascend the outdoor 50-foot climbing wall to enjoy bird’s-eye views of lush foliage and sparkling waters. The wall’s challenging crags offer thrilling exercise for patrons of all skill levels who are tired of walking up the down escalator in their workout clothes. Great for office workers planning a forested weekend escape or families looking to desert subterranean family rooms, Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing ensures a day of active, wireless entertainment.
Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing
The husband-and-wife duo that runs Wilderness Adventure at Eagle Landing always dreamed of starting an all-outdoor summer program for kids. In 1990, their dream became a reality when they purchased 500 acres of land in southwest Virginia that was perfect for outdoor adventures. Hills, trees, caves, and a glistening lake set the scene for activities such as rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking, and caving, though the staff says that its most popular attraction is the 900-foot zipline. Today, the grounds welcome participants young and old; many adult groups travel to the grounds for team-building and leadership events. All of Wilderness Adventure’s programs arm participants with these skills, boosting camper confidence and giving them enough self-esteem to try to singlehandedly bringing back the fanny pack.
