I was visiting my parents in Atlanta and we went ziplining one day. What an amazing experience. They had been before, but I never had. I loved it. Banning Mills has a great set-up with beautiful ziplines over the trees, creek and gorge. We were there in October, so the leaves were changing, making for stunning views as we zipped through the air. We even zipped over 3 deer, who just watched us.
Everyone begins with level 1, which includes 9 fairly simple ziplines and a bridge or two. All are fairly low and at a low speed. At the end of this, you can decide if you want to move on to level 2, which has higher and faster ziplines and numerous bridges. At the end, you can then decide if you want level 3, and so on, through to level 5. We did 3 levels, and level 3 was amazing, with longer and much faster lines. WE would have continued, but we were hungry and had already been there for several hours.
I would highly recommend this activity as a fun, slightly daring, but very safe activity. We loved it, the guides were excellent, and our group of 10 people got to know each other as we crowded on the platforms awaiting our turns and checking each other's lines to add additional levels of safety.
Banning Mills has created an excellent course/tour, and they are very focused on safety and fun. I will definitely be back next time I visit my parents in Atlanta.
