We are visiting from Florida where the land is flat and zip lines do not exist. This was our first zip-lining adventure and we were not sure what to expect. RidgeRunner offered an early bird special of 20% off if you opt for a 10:00 AM time. I highly recommend the earlier time as the weather is perfect. Jenna and... More

A large group of friends and family enjoyed a wonderful day at Ridge Runner Ziplines. Corey and Aly were awesome guides and took great care of us. This was my first experience ziplining and I was a little nervous. They were so professional and took great care when it came to safety and made me feel at ease. I would... More

On vacation with the family looking for some local fun, we ran across RidgeRunner Ziplines. What a great find! As soon as we pulled in, we were greeted with a "How are y'all?" by completely charming owners. After getting strapped in, Jenna taught us all the safety elements needed, and she patiently answered our "newbie" questions. Our guides, Tim and... More

I highly recomend the early bird tour!!! Worked out where me and my son were the only two on the morning we went. We had Sue and Jenna as our guides, after our safety instruction and overview we headed up the mountain. After a short drive to the top they start you on a short line not to high up... More

Wanted to try something that I hadn't tried before. We were taken to the top of a mountain, and ziplined back to the bottom in sections. Great views traveling over the treetops, and some sections we traveled at fast speeds. The sender and receiver made you feel safe on every run. Would do again!

Jenna, Chris and Tim were awesome guides, very entertaining, and safety conscious at all times. 11 separate lines to traverse, each with a unique and interesting flavor. We had a blast sailing through the trees, down a mountain side at up to 30 mph and 80 feet in the air!! Highly Recommended!!

Fun time zipping through the forests of Western North Carolina. Prices were reasonable (got the early bird special), guides were excellent and the course was long enough to be fun without being overwhelming. The longest runs are at the beginning of the course. Age range of our group was 20 to 74 and everyone had a good time.

Its fun for all ages. The experience was better than expected. The guides were very nice and the 11 ziplines we went on were fun! Will definitely repeat.

While on our honeymoon we had decided to do something different, while looking up zipline facilities we came upon Ridge Runner and found it to be the most affordable along with being able to zip over something other then a parking lot. Once there we had a great time, the guides were very friendly and tentative and made sure we... More

I had a great time. I had never done this before. ..used to be an adrenaline junkie but was diagnosed with Parkinson's a couple years ago. My wife and 16 yr old son love to zip line. Jenna and Tim were the perfect guides. They were patient and very safety conscious. The runs were awesome
