Zip zip zip

In October, Andrew and I redeemed our Living Social deals to Kersey Valley Zipline in High Point. Ziplining is something I’ve wanted to try for a while, and when the deal popped up we had to get it.

Basically, it was awesome. I was a bit freaked out for the first one, but adrenaline kicked in soon and I got the hang out it. Figuring out how to stop made me the most nervous, but I quickly learned how much pressure to apply to come to a stop. The first time, I put WAY too much pressure on the line which hurt my shoulder a bit, so I quickly learned my lesson.

Our two guides were really funny and entertaining, which made the experience even more fun. One of the women in our group was pretty terrified, so naturally our guide, nicknamed Mouth because he always runs his mouth, decided that she would be a great target for teasing. I was glad that he picked on her instead of me!

While ziplining, if you tuck your knees into a ball, it makes you go faster. I liked getting the extra speed to fly even faster through the woods. At times, the course went over a corn maze and other activity areas in the amusement park, and it was thrilling to fly high over people’s heads.

I’d really like to zipline again, probably in a tropical destination instead of North Carolina woods. Ziplining is a great activity for adventure seekers, and I really enjoyed Kersey Valley Zipline.

  1. Zipping down fast on a zip line is always fun. I’ve done it once or twice but not for years.
