Was a fun experience and definitely good for those who are new to ziplining adventures. Our two official guides were great, but we also had one "tag along" guide (maybe he was learning the ropes, unsure why he was even with us) who wouldn't stop running his mouth and making annoying jokes the entire time. Other than him, we had... More

Fun group, couple or family activity near Hickory/Morganton without driving up to Boone or Nantahala. Staff is excellent, kind and funny. Zip lines are fun as are rope bridges and challenges. However, if you are looking for super long or fast zip lines you will be disappointed here. This more of a multi-level challenge course than a heart stopping 2000... More

It was worth to trip. We drove 1.5 hours to get Morganton, NC. Staff is wonderful and friendly. My kids (10 yrs and 19 yrs) enjoyed the zipline, etc. Highly recommend it.

This was a really exciting way to spend a couple of hours. We had a lot of fun ziplining across the park and climbing the bridges. We have been ziplining before so we knew that we would enjoy this activity. The staff was fun to talk with and they were very serious about safety. The equipment was well maintained. We... More

Great, extremely fun experience! Our first time zip-lining and this was a perfect fit. Staff was very knowledgable and emphasized safety while making it super fun! Can't wait to take out-of-town guests on this fun adventure! Watch for Groupons or check the Beanstalk website for specials!

Highly recommend this great zip line adventure that comes at a great value using Groupon. Guides Cassy and Noah were friendly, professional, helpful and FUN. We came with our 8 & 11 year old and all loved the 1.5hr zip lining. For additional charges, don't miss the climbing tower and the free fall. Adrenaline rushes to the max and great... More

We had purchased passes for our family of four and one of our children backed out so only two passes were used on our first visit. My husband and I rescheduled to go so both of us could zip-line. His first zip-line experience was amazing! The guides (Zac is the main one we both remember) and were excellent and it... More

My 12 yr. old was afraid of heights but she asked to try this. I was thrilled that she was squealing with glee (instead of fear) by the end of the trip. That was mainly due to the two wonderful guides, Zac and Miriam. A great place to experience a zipline.
