Taking Scenic Views to New Heights
Zipline tour offers longest, highest mountaintop zips

If you had one superpower, would it be flying? You no longer have to waste your wish on that, thanks to the new Blue Ridge Experience at Navitat Canopy Adventures.

The course, which opens May 10, will make mere mortals feel like they're soaring above the Blue Ridge mountain peaks. The Blue Ridge Experience features three of the highest and longest zips in the Southeast, all done on side-by-side "racing-style" lines with automatic braking capabilities, so you can enjoy sweeping mountaintop views to the fullest.

The longest zip tops out at nearly three-quarters of a mile, while even the shortest zip spans three and a half football fields. The highest line whisks zippers more than 350 feet off the ground! In addition, the tour offers three scenic hikes on the Navitat property. By the time the tour is done, zippers will have seen the surrounding mountains from every possible angle--talk about a panoramic experience!

The Blue Ridge Experience also provides a great complement to Navitat's original zipline course, the Moody Cove Adventure. According to Navitat Branding & Marketing Leader Abby Burt, "The Moody Cove tour is all about hanging out in the trees and exploring the canopy. The Blue Ridge Experience is about flying high and flying fast and traversing wide open spaces."

Want to do both? Check out The Ultimate, a full-day double-feature adventure package that saves zippers 15% off of regular ticket prices.
