Overview

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.

My family and friends (kids ages 17 to 21) had a blast. The tour guides were amazing and checked our safety constantly. The equipment was in great shape and the landings were solid. Make sure you have upper body strength and be prepared to laugh...More

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.

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.
