Wife and I (60 +/-) had a great time. Staff was couldn't be better. Big plus for us was the absence of rope "bridges" from platform to platform. These can be intimidating. Only suggestion for improvement would be steps and handrails on the few areas where a very short walk is required between platforms. (fallen leaves made the surface a... More

The prospect of my son zip lining across the mountains had me a little unnerved but they had so much fun I feel I must make a thoughtful review. I saw all the videos (I'm personally afraid of heights so didn't attend) and the staff was spot on, attentive, professional and accommodating to our schedule. My son left feeling confident... More

Staff was awesome. Very friendly and made the trip worth while. The leaves were changing and the scenery was impressive. Equipment was well maintained. Will definitely be back on next trip to the area.

Sue, Isaac, and Tony were all amazing! The course is 11 lines (in 2016), starting at the top of the mountain and working down. Every line has something unique to try or experience. Having been on several zip line courses, I thought this was the most balanced and exciting one yet. We plan to go back soon! If this is... More

My husband and I plus our two children (11 & 13) went zipping with Ridge Runner Ziplines and had a fabulous time. My daughter (11) and I had never done a zipline before so we were a bit apprehensive. Not to mention that I am afraid of heights. Sue (the owner) put us right at ease. She was very calm,... More

I took my family to Murphy, NC for fall break and our trip to Ridge Runner Ziplines was the highlight of our trip. The owner and staff are amazing and have as much to do with making the course awesome as the zips themselves! My youngest son who had never been before was extremely nervous and by letting him do...

Just have to commend our guide Trevor. After reviewing the rules and briefed on basic instructions I still forgot the most basic maneuvers in certain situations. Had one rough landing but could of been worse if not for the quick response from Trevor. Our other guide Isaac also was very reassuring and made you feel at ease. Great job guys.
