Here is some STUFF you NEED TO KNOW before you GO!
The Blue Ridge Canopy Adventure in Blue Ridge, Georgia takes approximately 1.5 to 2 hours to complete for a party of 6. This heavily depends on skill levels and current course capacity. Smaller groups of less than 6 will likely finish in less time. Groups of more experienced zip liners would also finish in less time depending on course capacity.
In order to expedite your check in process we ask that all guests arrive 30 minutes prior to their scheduled departure and be prepared to be outdoors for up to 2 hours. We encourage all guests to bring a small back pack or fanny pack to hold a bottle of water or a snack or both.
Our canopy adventures leave on time, every time.
Our guides run on a tight schedule and we cannot wait for late arrivals. DON'T BE LATE!
We also recommend that all participants download and fill out our Participant Agreement (which is a PDF you can download and print) ahead of time. This will greatly expedite your check-in process and help us avoid any last second delays. To download our Participant Agreement click on the PDF at the bottom of the page.
