About Our Adventure in the Mountains

Before moving to the Tri-Cities, I owned and operated the first commercial zip line in Boone, NC, which was written about in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today as one of the most exciting zip lines in America. When I moved here, I noticed that members of the community had to drive over an hour to experience this amazing adventure. Not only did Janice and I want to bring fun and excitement to the area, but we wanted to do so at an affordable cost, so that more families could have the opportunity to make lasting memories.

Off the Grid Mountain Adventures features one of the longest zip lines in the country, at nearly 3000 feet long, the length of 10 football fields, and close to 300 feet above the canyon floor, reaching speeds up to 60 miles per hour. Those who are competitive will enjoy the dual zip line where you can race your friends and family. Unlike most zip lines where the zipper controls their speed and safety, our highly trained staff does the braking for you, making your experience safer and a lot more fun.

We also offer a ride to the top of the mountain in a Hagglund, which is an incredible military transport vehicle imported from Sweden. It’s designed to take troops where no other vehicle could, and Off the Grid Mountain Adventures is the only place in the country to experience one.

Another amazing thrill we offer is one of the area’s only gravity defying giant swings. Once you’re harnessed in and seated, you’re hoisted up 50 feet (That's 5 stories!) Once you pull the release, you are weightless for a moment then swing out in a 100 ft. pendulum, reaching speeds of 50 miles per hour.

If that's not enough adrenaline, we have a 60 ft. tower in the sky which is also a part of your zip tour. You can zip back out, belay down (a form of repelling), or for those that dare, take the leap of faith. A tether is attached to your harness and you walk the plank, step off, and freefall 20+ feet before a quick jump device kicks in and lowers you safely to the ground.

You can also ride up to the peaks of the mountains, down and around the other side of the 76 acre park on an ATV.

The complete course was engineered to the highest of all safety standards by a licensed Tennessee engineer. Once it was completed and successfully inspected, it was inspected again by a neutral third-party inspector. All of the staff has been certified by the same guidelines and your safety is our number one priority.

Prices range from $12.00 to a full package of $59.00. That rate is a far cry from the average price of zip lining, which normally costs $89.00 to $129.00 just to zip. At Off the Grid Mountain Adventures, you can experience a whole lot more at half the cost.
