Your family can take on an exciting adventure they'll never forget, courtesy of Unicoi Aerial Adventure Park's newest zip line canopy.
Here are a few reasons why you'll want to add this new aerial adventure to your bucket list:
While the level 1 zip line at the Unicoi Aerial Adventure Park includes 11 zip lines spanning 400 feet and reaching 75 feet high, the new level 2 zip line features 8 additional zip lines reaching 2,000 feet long and 100 feet high. This record-breaking experience also takes you along two additional sky bridges and an aerial tower where you just might see a few red-tailed hawks, bald eagle and deer. For $89.00 per person, you can enjoy both levels 1 and 2 for an unmatched zip line challenge.
You'll fly through stunning scenery
You just can't beat the views you'll see while flying through the air around Unicoi State Park & Lodge on the newest level 2 zip line. The entire zip line canopy weaves around the lake located at Unicoi State Park and provides you with breathtaking scenic views throughout your adventure. Don't forget your camera on this one.
You're in good hands (and lines)
If you're worried about safety, Unicoi Aerial Adventure Park has you covered. Their entire zip line canopy system, called Quick Trekker, uses a continuous closed belay system that ensures a safe and secure zip line experience. Not only that, but all Aerial Adventure guides have CPR, High Rescue and Wilderness First Aid training.
Prepare yourself for a great workout
When you spend a couple of hours playing around on the Unicoi Aerial Adventure Park level 2 zip line, you'll definitely feel like you've had a great workout. This newest zip line will have you climbing up and down a 100-foot tower, walking and balancing along uneven terrain and using your whole body to move and maneuver through the course.
Turn your zip line experience into a vacation
At Unicoi State Park and Lodge, you can stay for the day or turn your adventure into a full-fledged vacation. In addition to comfortable rooms inside the lodge, there are also 30 private cabins and 82 campsites within the park. Guests can also dine at the Unicoi Restaurant or the Smith Creek Tavern.
