Took my grand kids to Beanstalk and had a wonderful time. Very family friendly the guides Zack and CJ did a tremendous job of guiding and showing us a grand time. Best part for the kids was the bungee jump!! Having been to other zip-lining places this is very much fun for all ages. Thanks again for a great time

We were there this past week as part of a family reunion activity. We had people ages 88 to 4 and everyone had a great time. One guide, Will, was incredible with my 10 year old who started to panic at the first zip line. He calmed him down, told him jokes and sent him on his way. My son... More

Our family of 6 went on this adventure together!! We had a blast. One of the group was even afraid of heights but handled this very well and is wanting to go again. Everyone there is very friendly. We felt very safe and secure at all times. I highly recommend this to anyone.

As a person with a fear of heights, the staff here were super! They were hilarious, first off, (Alan and Mike??) and deftly took the edge off for those of us who were a bit paralyzed at first. Would definitely repeat and recommend! There was a little 5 year old who was braver than I -- a 49 year old... More

Participates safety was clearly number one on the staff's priority list. From the beginning to the end participates are ensured to be safely latched to riggings for safety by at least two staff members. Medium effort... More

We arrived on a cold, windy and wet day. Everyone else on the tour cancelled... But we were determined to make the best of it since this was our one thing to do to celebrate our first marriage anniversary. Our guides were AWESOME and made the experience fun and exciting... Joking with us and laughing and having a good time... More

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.
