Flying across 3,500 feet of lines suspended above the rolling foothills below, visitors at Eagles Wings Zipline can expect an adrenaline-packed experience during zipline tours that can last up to 2.5 hours. Sometimes up to 75 feet above the ground on lines that span more than 1,000 feet in length, zipliners can reach top speeds over 40-miles-per-hour while safely suspended from the sturdy lines. The course also includes thrilling components such as a bridge suspended 100 feet over the forest floor, suspended ladders that connect platforms, and at least two areas where visitors inadvertently scream and giggle like toddlers.
The tallest of the 40 climbing stations at Vertical eXcape stretch 32 feet into the air. On these stations, climbers navigate their way through 12,000 square feet of textured climbing surfaces as they dangle beneath overhangs and haul themselves up slabs. Most of the walls are fitted with a classic top-roping belay system; seven of them have TruBlue auto-belay devices for those climbers without extra-long arms. Climbers can also develop their agility and strength while bouldering or sport climbing, and brush up on skills during climbing classes. Those who want to practice their upward mobility in the great outdoors can arrange for one of the guided trips to any number of staff-favorite climbing locations.
