For Adrenaline JunkiesFlag review
Historic Banning Mills is for those who have zip lined before and want a real challenge. They have an introductory course if you want, but I think there are better places to go for your first time. Banning Mills has the longests and fastest zips, as well as an adventure park, which includes a 600 ft long footbridge and elevated obstacles. The Forest Tour and new Woodland Tour are level 1 courses and made for first time zippers and families. This is a great way to get used to the height and zipping. A few of the later zips require breaking, and guides are always available to help. Even this tour requires lots of stair climbing and a basic level of fitness is needed to enjoy the adventure. For veteran zippers, this is a tame course, the real fun comes at the higher levels. If your family has mastered this course and doesn’t want to quit, you can upgrade on the spot to the next level. The Aerial Adventure Challenge is a zip into a series of extreme challenge elements 80 ft in the air. The addition of the rope challenges to break up the zip experiences. The elements weren’t always easy, in one there is a tree running right through the middle of the path, but it lots of fun to push yourself in different ways.
