Though it prohibits us from bench-pressing cars, gravity is the best thing for getting water out of the sky and the only thing keeping football stadiums from floating away. Resist it with today's Groupon: for $40, you get a two-hour high-course zipline excursion from Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tour in Westfield (an $80 value). Tours depart five times each day Tuesday–Sunday.
Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tour’s guides lead high-flying visitors on an adrenaline-fueled excursion through the verdant treetops of the Carolina forests in the shadow of Pilot Mountain. To prepare for the tour, aspiring cable riders soak in a safety orientation that teaches how to adjust harnesses, clip onto wires, call for pizza delivery, and brake with the help of a sample zip on a low-hanging line that safely acquaints novices with the feel of flight.
One by one, riders step into midair to zoom along a suspended wire to the next platform. With a total of 8–10 platforms set 20–80 feet above the ground, the course affords riders ample time to study the complex ecosystem of animals, plants, and Swiss Family Robinsons who live at the canopy level. For the grand finale, riders scream across a mammoth 1,000-foot stretch of cable, reaching speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. Tours for children aged 3–12 are available for $40, making this Groupon ideal for adults. Groupon holders may purchase additional adult tickets onsite for $30 off.
Our customers loved this deal last year, earning Carolina Ziplines Canopy Tour a spot on Groupon's Best of 2011 list.
