Response from Jack W, Owner at Wildwater Nantahala Adventure Center
Responded 3 days ago
It was a very hard decision to require face coverings while ziplining but due to the close proximity of everyone on small platforms in the trees made it necessary; we generally recommend going earlier in the day when it is not so hot and there is less chance of afternoon summer thunderstorms. I am sorry you missed the information that you have to wear a mask on our tours. There is a link on our homepage to an "Opening Guidelines" page with information all canopy tours will operate with face coverings. Our link email to the waiver has a statement that face coverings are required. Please note our rafting trips only require face coverings in the building and on the bus ride. All Guest comment emails from the website come to my inbox, I cannot find an email from you, can you call me directly at 864-482-0450 or contact me directly so I can find your reservation and make it right? As far as our staff being rude, providing misleading information and laughing at you I am shocked and embarrassed you had this experience, please let me know what day and time you came so I can look into it further. Jack Wise, Wildwater Ltd.
