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.

Great time

The experience was really great it gets you to do something that you normally don't do everyday unless you work there and the people working there are really nice and fun.

Russ and Sarah mae were our guides today and they were awesome. We had 2 adults, a 13, and 10 year old. They loved every zip and especially the swinging bridge. The guides explained all the facets of zip lining and safety and everyone, even those a little hesitant did a great job and enjoyed themselves.

The location is central to Boone and Blowing Rock, NC. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They have a 1/2 mile zip line and almost a minute of air time.

This was my first time ziplining. I really appreciated the practice on the ground before starting. The staff was very nice and had tons of personality and put me at ease. After the first couple lines I was less fearful and able to enjoy it. The views were AMAZING. The only thing negative I'll say is I didn't fully appreciate... More

This was a great place to go with young kids who are too light to ride an adult zip line. We had six dads and daughters and agreed it was a lot of fun. The girls had a blast and they can do the zip line activities without anyone helping them clip on and off between pads which was great... More
