Off The Grid Mountain Adventures
Thanks to you our customers, now our friends
Off the Grid Mountain Adventures Is now 5 * Rated *****Trip Advisor, Facebook, Google, and Yelp
Off the Grid Mountain Adventures was established last year right here in Elizabethton TN on 76 acres. Monie McCoury and his wife Janice wanted to bring a new and exciting venture to our area. They succeeded with one of the longest, fastest and highest zip lines in the country at 3,000 feet long, 300 feet above the canyon floor and reaching speeds of up to 60 mph; they provide an ATV ride to the tip top of the mountain to get things started. The goal was not to be like any other zip line; Off the Grid has one of the country's best zip lines and they give their customers the very best value at $39.00 per person. If you search zip lining, you will see most companies charge $79 and up per person - with no super zip. Off the Grid gives you a 3,000-footer, and oh, by the way, it’s a dual zip line so you can race family and friends. So far, our youngest zipper is 15 months old, and our oldest is 90! Fun for all ages!
Off the Grid features other attractions with different levels of adrenalin like our Gravity Defying giant swing; once harnessed you step up onto the platform where the guides securely hook you up. Then you sit on a padded seat as you’re slowly hoisted 50 feet up in the air; it’s all up to you to pull the release and, for a second, know what it’s like to be weightless, swinging 50 mph in a 100-foot pendulum. Wanting more adrenalin? Take the leap of faith. This is from our 60-foot tower; our guides hooks the quick jump device to your harness. Now you walk the plank and just step off, free falling 20 + feet before the quick jump kicks in and lowers you an additional 30 feet safely to the ground where one of our guides will be waiting for you. What a rush!
Another first for Off the Grid is their nighttime Backlight zip line tours. These were a huge success last year, so we are bringing it back this summer, Friday and Saturday nights starting at 9:00 pm; reservations required for this tour.
NOW, to keep you in suspense, they are adding another adventure this year - just not letting it out of the bag yet! Just one more reason why Off the Grid has been voted the #1 thing to do on TripAdvisor.com.
A final note from Monie; we are humbled by the welcoming community and each and every customer that has supported us. It is our goal to exceed your expectations, always treating you like family! Visit us.
