Dante came to West Virginia to experience the thrills that the New River can provide, but first he had to tackle ACE’s Zip Line Canopy Tour which looms 40 – 70 feet above the ground.He and his friends from Ohio weren’t quite sure what they were getting themselves into after signing up. They knew it would be a rush but would it, could it rival their exciting whitewater rafting trip?
Judging by all of the laughing and smiling, yes.
A fear of heights didn’t stop Dante from flying through the treetops, facing his phobia head-on, and it shouldn’t stop you either.
ACE canopy tours are perfect for people of all ages and experience levels.
All you’re expected to do is listen carefully and have a great time while the canopy tour crew will do the rest.
Be sure to sign up for a safe and speedy canopy tour the next time you visit the New River Gorge.
And a big thank you to Dante and all his friends for letting us attach GoPro cameras to them and film them on their zip line adventure. If you like these point-of-view and helmet cam shots, you’ll be excited to know we’re producing a video like this each week. Be sure to check out our other GoPro videos on:
