Zipline Canopy Tours in the Blue Ridge Mountains
Zipline canopy adventures are super fast and super fun!
Before you begin zipping above the trees you'll need to sit through a quick safety class so you understand how the system works. Some zip lines offer breaks built in stopping you safely and easily. However, if you prefer to control your deceleration, some zip lines provide a simple brake system that you apply. If you prefer one over another, be sure to check with the adventure park before visiting. The platforms are way up in the trees but zip line riders are continuously clipped onto safety lines by guides/instructors. Guides tend to be entertaining and incredibly helpful, providing advice and information on every platform, eliminating any fears or apprehension. While everything is safe, it doesn’t take away the thrills!
