Beanstalk Zip lines offers unique outdoor fun for all ages

Here’s the press release:

Morganton, NC – Individuals, groups of all sizes and families are “soaring” to Morganton’s zip line canopy tour for outdoor adventure in a park-like setting. Open Tuesday – Sunday from 10:00am to 5:00pm and also on Saturday evenings through September for Night Zipping.

Beanstalk Journey’s Zip Lines consist of an exhilarating network of fifteen interconnected islands in the sky. Zippers are transported from one tree house to the next by a series of sky bridges and multiple zip lines. Participants can challenge their climbing skills on the 32-foot Beanstalk Climbing Tower and play right above, on the giant Spider’s Climbing Web.

“The recent development of the zip line adventure experience is addressing a need that people of all ages have for moderate adventure along with fun, family time, recreation and all the benefits of simply being active outdoors,“ explains Mike Fischesser, owner of Beanstalk Journeys. “These characteristics sum up our mission. We are very excited about the safe and exciting experiences that we are now providing for thousands of people annually.”

Beanstalk Zip Lines are different than a lot of the other operations because participants can be as young as 4 years old. Many zip line facilities require a minimum weight of 70 pounds, but because Beanstalk Zip Lines have a full-body harness, children younger and lighter are allowed to experience zipping.

Another very important difference in Beanstalk Zip Lines is its safe and unique “Peter Pan” breaking system. Instead of hand-breaking, which is a common practice among other facilities, the Peter Pan breaking system eliminates some accidents that have been caused from hand breaking.
