More About World-Class

Enjoy the best views North Carolina has to offer while enjoying some of the best zip lining in the country. 

Take the time to enjoy all our beautiful scenery from a unique perspective as you zip. Your zip line experience begins in the lush mountain hardwoods of Western North Carolina, near the top of High Holly Mountain located between Highlands, North Carolina and Dillard, Georgia. Our experienced guides take you on a fantastic journey across 17 elements, including eight zip lines, among the many different trees and species of flora and fauna that only grow in our eastern temperate rainforest. The old-growth forest littered with peaks and knolls, whose springs and branches carve ravines and waterfalls, creates a wondrous natural terrain ideal for this eco-tour adventure park. We love our mountain hardwoods and know you will too.

Our World-Class Canopy Tour consists of eight zip lines. The fifth zip line, called the “Squealing Mare,” is not to be missed. If you are like most of our guests, this awe-inspiring 1/4 of a mile ride will leave you smiling from ear to ear. The Squealing Mare reaches a height of 210 feet above the ground with a long-range view of the Smoky Mountains in Western North Carolina that you do not want to miss. This zip line tour is sure to be a favorite!
