Rock Hill, South Carolina Zipline Opens this Weekend


Ziplining is all the rage across the country, and this weekend, it comes to Rock Hill, South Carolina with the Grand Opening of Canaan Zipline Canopy Tour. On Saturday morning, you can enjoy a preview of the course, along with free music and food.  Then the fun begins Saturday afternoon when the true thrill seekers and tree huggers will try their hand at this exciting new adventure.

Canaan Zipline Canopy tours feature three different tours for high-flying adventurers of all ages.  The Canopy  Tour features a 2 1/2- to 3-hour exhilarating adventure zipping through the trees on a network of cables and skybridges crisscrossing the Catawba River. After a brief safety orientation, you will climb a 70-ft tower and then glide through oaks, poplars and birches across 9 ziplines, three skybridges, and three short nature trails. This tour is ideal for families, first-timers, as well as high-adventure enthusiasts.

The Canopy Adventure Tour is only for the brave of heart with the full Canopy Tour followed by a two hour climb and rapell of the 70-ft. tower next to the Catawba River.

And, lastly, The Bootleg Tour is a 5-zipline tour and nature walk that serves as a great introduction to the full-canopy tour.  And with promotional pricing through May 6, 2001 from $40 for the Bootleg tour to $65 for the Adventure Tour, it's a deal of a thrill (prices are more for the 2011 Regular Season May 6 – November 30).

Canaan Zipline Canopy Tour is under the umbrella of Camp Canaan which is a 501(c)(3) non-profit. Canaan has been in existence since 2004 and offers camps, retreats and adventure programs to families and organizations in York County, the Greater Charlotte area and beyond.  As a non-profit, Canaan's vision is to help others discover their purpose, find hope and grow in a community of faith and a percentage of the revenue from the Canaan Zipline Canopy Tour is allotted towards summer camp scholarships for area children and youth.
