Before zip-lining was invented, the best way to get a free-flying rush was by painting your entire body silver and impersonating a hood ornament. Suspend yourself with today's Groupon: for $48, you get a zip-line tour for two at The Beanstalk Journey at Catawba Meadows in Morganton (a $98 value). Zip-lining journeys take between 2 and 2.5 hours.
At The Beanstalk Journey, aerial adventurers navigate a labyrinthine network of zip lines and sky bridges connecting a village of tree houses some 50 feet above the ground. Each tree house serves as a rest stop or education station with 360-degree views of Catawba Meadows Park, where visitors can learn about local history, the surrounding flora and fauna, and the origin of the Keebler elves that originally inhabited the village. Traversing from tree house to tree house via sky bridges and zip lines culminates in the ultimate rope ladder, the 32-foot beanstalk rope tower and giant central climbing web.
Spider monkeys and panda bears alike find an adventure to match their skill set or desired level of exertion within The Beanstalk Journey's al fresco confines. Aspiring air-riders should be sure to wear closed-toe shoes, longer shorts or pants, a hair tie for long hair, and a strap to secure glasses, cameras, and wayward wallets.
Though The Beanstalk Journey features discounted prices online, today's Groupon still offers the best deal available.
