Ziplines are all about the environment in which you experience them. Consider dual lines, spanning 150 metres across a gorge, raging whitewater below and one of the largest waterfalls in Canada on your left. Regardless whether you whoop in French or English, once your feet leave the wooden platform, you’ll find yourself gliding along at 30 – 40 km/hr, and with an awfully big smile on your face.
Length of Trip : 60 - 90 minutes
Cost : $40 a person, with group rates, youth specials and senior prices. You can also use a “Superman harness”, for $60 a person.
Best time to go : Open 7 days a week, 9am to 9pm
Wheelchair friendly : No
Family friendly : Yes
Official Site : www.zipzag.ca
Where to Stay : A list of hotels, cottages, B&B’s and campgrounds around Grand Falls can be found by clicking here. The only full service hotel in Grand Falls is the Quality Inn.
Getting There : If you’re coming along Highway 2: Take the HWY-108/MADAWASKA RD exit, EXIT 77, toward GRAND FALLS CENTRE. Turn SLIGHT RIGHT onto PROVINCIAL SECONDARY ROUTE 108/MADAWASKA RD. Your destination is just past BURGESS ST. If you reach PROVINCIAL SECONDARY ROUTE 108 you've gone a little too far
Note from Robin : With dual lines, why not have a race? You will feel the spray from the waterfalls, but don’t worry, you won’t get wet enough to warrant a change of clothes.
