Guide to a Successful Canopy Tour Adventure

NGCT2Wildwater canopy tours typically have 9-13 zips, with small groups of up to 10 Guests plus 2 Rangers, who take you through a guided trip in the tree canopy.  Ziplines are tree to tree with bridges, poles, man made towers and other elements to provide a well rounded experience.  Ask about the setting to be sure you are getting what you expect, there are Zipline Tours that simply zip over fields & parking lots.  Canopy Tours are about the whole experience, challenge, learning, fun and doing something you do not do in your everyday life.

Adventure Parks typically have 1 or 2 short zips, and the primary activity is high ropes elements/challenges that you complete on your own with a large group of participants.  These parks are great for personal challenge, fitness group interaction and skill building.  The best parks have routes or trails offering different challenges for different abilities.  Adventure Parks are a great experience, ask questions and choose the activity you want.
