Overview
More
We provide the best zip line adventures in western North Carolina. Two tours are offered: 1) Canopy Tour: 10 zip lines, a 45' vertical decent off a rock face, and a 120' cable bridge over a 35' cascading waterfall. This tour combines all the fun and thrill of a zip line tour with all the sights and sounds of the Appalachian mountains. Cross the valley at 300' off the valley floor. Must be 10 years old and between 70-250 lbs. to participate. 2) KIDS ZIP: Called the Whistle Pig Adventure Park, our kids zip line is a miniature version of the Canopy Tours. Includes 7 zips, a small bridge, and a 20' long slide out of the tress. Kids can play for up to 2 hours and zip through the course as many times as they can. An adult chaperon can relax in the viewing area or walk around just below the kids to take pictures and cheer them on. A covered picnic shelter and water is provided. Children must be 4 years old and be able to reach 48" high.

Our two guides - Bobby and Ross were great and worked well together. The other staff were very friendly too. This course is nice because it has two other challenges besides zip lines - short repel and a suspended bridge. These add nice variety. Definitely...More

Great zip line adventure with a great variety between the over the valley, the swinging bridge over a glorious waterfall and boulders, and rappelling down an impressive rock. Exhilarating!

Great experience. I have been zip lining before, but not to this caliber. John and Adam were awesome guides, who made us feel safe while having a great time. Views were amazing and the lines were great. I would definitely go back again.

As Julia mentioned it is an extra price. One of your guides will take pictures throughout the entire tour of everyone in your group and scenic pictures as well! After the tour you can take a look at them before you buy them... More
