Whitesburg, GA (PRWEB) May 05, 2011
The ultimate outdoor destination in Georgia, Historic Banning Mills, has just opened another eco-canopy zip line tour, the Ridge Runners, the latest extension of its 35-plus zip line collection. The zip line runs along and over a natural ridge and through a tunnel of trees at heart-pounding speeds upwards of 70 mph for an almost mile-long adrenaline rush.
The Ridge Runners Tour is included in the ALL-DAY RUSH package during which zip line participants experience eight hours of zip lines and sky bridges, including the Screaming Eagle and the Terminator Corner, the extreme Aerial Challenge course.
“The Ridge Runners are one of the most exhilarating zip line tours we’ve created yet,” said Historic Banning Mills founder Mike Holder. “The height and depth of this line, coupled with the ridges and tree tunnels, makes this the most extreme zip line excursion in the country.”
Located 45 minutes west of Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Historic Banning Mills has the largest continuous eco-canopy tour in the world, with more than six miles of canopy walk and zip lines. Guests can experience more than 35 zip lines and 40 tree walk bridges, all built in a breath-taking setting. As they do so, they will encounter one of the most diverse eco systems in the world, as well as some incredible Georgia history.
Banning Mills welcomes thrill-seekers, families, nature lovers, sportsmen, couples and groups alike. For more information on the Ridge Runners and Historic Banning Mills, visit http://www.historicbanningmills.com or call 770-834-9149.
