Perfect for the New ZipperFlag review
North Georgia Canopy Tours is a guided zipline adventure that is perfect for newbies. They start you low and slow in ground school and get you used to the equipment and breaking. Each zip gets progressively higher, so you can get used to moving up in the trees. By the time you are done, you're walking around the sky high platforms is no big deal. They also have an adventure tour that is for more experienced or just more adventurous zippers. The Adventure Course follows the Sky Bridge course and then halfway through, we veered off to the longer adventure course and the best zips. The Adventure Course crosses two sky bridges, contains three short uphill hikes and a rappel off the last platform. It’s not overly strenuous, and there are several water stations that allow guests to take a break if needed. Tour guides act as nature guides during the brief hikes, inserting a bit of Disney Jungle Cruise humor to lighten things up. The taunt zip cables that made me feel more secure the first time I zipped, allowed me to jump off the platforms this time to gain a bit of speed (or so I thought). The lines at North Georgia Canopy Tours allow for a decent amount of speed without taking your head off when you land. My favorite zips were the longer ones that give you a bird’s eye view of the surrounding North Oconee River, the ponds and forest. I found myself wanting to go slower so I could take in more of my surroundings. At the end of the adventurous course is a rappel which was terrifying at first but lots of fun in the end.
