“30 highwire challenge elements”
ZIPstream Aerial Adventure Courses include something for just about everyone! ZIPstream's self-directed courses for children, youth, and adults allow participants to move through a series of fun, exciting, and progressively challenging tree to tree activities. With multiple elements included in a single course, participants can decide how far they go. All courses are graded by color coded diamonds, progressing from Green, to Blue, to Red, to Black. At each level the challenges become both higher and more difficult as participants progress through the diamond paths. Currently, Ruby Falls ZIPstream has implemented Stage 1 including both the Green and Blue Diamond Courses, with the vision for the future to add the Red and Black Courses. Ruby Falls ZIPstream Aerial Adventure includes 30 highwire challenge elements including ladders, nets, walkways, bridges, tunnels, and zip lines all set into three distinct courses: Green and Blue Diamond for ages 11 and up, and an Orange Diamond for children ages 6-10.
I would have to respectfully disagree with willdad2 and oscarsnellman. While it isn't a necessarily inepxensive endeavor, it is something that I would say is a rare opportunity and worh the money. Adults are $20 and kids 13 and under (check the web site for the exact ages are $10.95. The tour is guided and lasts about 1 hour. I would say that if you are claustrophobic, or don't like closed in places that you cannot get out of quickly, this probably isn't the place for you. The tour begins with a quick elevator ride down 260 feet the the start of the tour. A guide then walks you back into the mountain over 2000 ft where you ultimately arrive at the falls. The lights and sound that willdad 2 mentions do greet you, but I did not find it overwhelming and even if there was not theatrical music, the other people in your tour group would be making noise, so I don't see how the experience would be that serene to begin with?
Anyway, I think it was worth it, my family and I decided on a whim to go and it was easy to access off the intersate and not very far. On this trip, we were in our car, but if you are in an RV of any size you would need to use caution. If you are towing a trailer of any size I would be very careful and consider maybe not trying to stop while towing. The grade is pretty extreme >10% I would say and a there are a couple almost hairpin turns. I would call Ruby Falls for their recommendations.
It was beautiful. I'm glad I paid to get in and experience this.
So glad we made the stop! The history behind the Falls is awesome and breath taking! I enjoyed the way they lit up the falls with the colored lights and music also! The wonder of the Falls was also very intriguing!
I would love to go here,I LOVE caves but the addition of loud music,or any music atall,in my eys,ruins the pece and quiet and is unecessary. The beauty of this cavern is enough on its own to attract people.
Disappointed when I went. Waterfall was like a bathtub faucet and have see better cave formations elsewhere. Fall Creek Falls is a better stop for a waterfall and Cathedral Caverns will wow you if you want to see cave formations and both are less touristy.
My family made a spontaneous stretch our legs stop here, yesterday, and would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of adventure. We had a blast! There are several course options; reasonably priced, fun, and challenging. There is a basic zip line through the trees course, obstacle course, zip line combo course, and a rock climbing wall. My husband and teen daughter did the Blue/Green Diamond Zip Obstacle Course $34.95, ages 11+. My 7 yr. old daughter did the Orange Zip Obstacle Course, $19.95, ages 6-10, and the add on Climbing Tower (rock wall), $7.95. Plan on spending around 2-3 hours here. Well worth the time and money for great family bonding time.
Waited in line for 2 hours and was very disappointed. Theres a haunted house run by a family in Mcdonald, TN about 30 minutes from here that is SO much better!
Would not go back just because there is NO serenity to it any more. I wish I could just get a video of the changing lights, and the sound of the waterfall withOUT the LOUD blaring music. This is such a beautiful place but has been ruined with these nuisances... What a shame, definitely NOT worth the entry fee for a family of 4.
Quite pricy for what you get. USD 20 for adult admission. Groups can get as big as 60persons.
Our destination was honest Charlies, but we stumbled onto Ruby Falls and it was a wonderful experience.
