First zipline tour

My husband and I decided to try our local attraction. The net tube was difficult for my small feet to walk up. The guides and zipline were great! A fun few hours!

We found a Groupon so that was good. Prices were better the more you had in the party. The kids zip lined with two professionals on about 12 lines. They helped us hook up the Go Pro to get action shots. They also offer them as a rental.

We came here from Texas during our spring break after finding this activity online. The website clearly stated times available were 10am and 2pm at a price of $69 for walk ups which is what we planned to do. When we arrived, we were told that we couldn't participate because they only had one person on duty and needed two.... More

The staff were SUPER helpful and encouraging, one went out of her way to make sure my young daughter enjoyed the experience and didn't get scared! The ziplines were varied and there was fun climbing, and the safety precautions were outstanding. Beautiful location, there is a fun playground nearby, picnic areas, plan to stay the whole day!

The zip line is very popular, it is in a beautiful part of Catawba Meadows, along the greenway. Beautiful area for a family outing plus fun on the zip lines.

I have enjoyed the complete zip line tour three times with different groups of people. Each experience has been fun and exciting. The guides are professional yet so much fun. You always feel safe and secure, but not overly restricted. The area is beautiful and the greenway very close for a nice walk after or before your ziplining.

I had bought the living social for the haunted zipline and it was well worth it. We had a great time and our guides, Will and Brittany, we're a blast! I would recommend it to anyone and to arrive early because the park that it is in is really beautiful. Thank you for a great night!
