Looking for family fun near Atlanta and Chattanooga this summer? As the Southeast’s Pioneer in Ziplines since 1971, our Ocoee Zip Line Canopy Tours are perfect for the whole family! For those headed to the Ocoee River this summer, you can now experience the adventure of flying on zip lines. Located just 1.5 miles east of Wildwater Ocoee. Wildwater acquired over 14 wooded acres just outside of Ducktown that is now an extension of the Wildwater Ocoee Center. The Ocoee canopy tour is a wooded and tree based tour (no zipping over fields or parking lots!) with 9 zip line sections and three swinging sky bridges that highlight the vast history and beauty of this once barren landscape. Canopy Rangers will share both the history and the wonder of the recovery of this area from red clay back to deep green forest.
Each participant is provided with state-of-the-art equipment including helmets, full body harnesses, trolley, gloves, tether lines, with 2 canopy rangers accompanying each group. All Canopy Tour Rangers are trained to ACCT standards and all courses are built and inspected to ACCT standards to provide safety and fun!
