My husband and I came to Banning Mills for a two day getaway and loved every minute! The zip lining we did was so much fun! We did levels 1-3 and had a blast! We loved it so much we wanted to add on and do more! The guides were very friendly and helpful and made it a fun time. We are already planning a return trip to come back and do some of the zip lines we didn't get to this time!Heather C

Awesome experience for first timers or experienced zip liners.A. Maddox
It was so much fun! Had an awesome man in our group he was 81 years old and made it through the whole thing!! Never to old to try new things!!K. McClellan
My husband and I decided to take a trip to Lake Guntersville for our 10 year Anniversary. The zipline was a great adventure for us. The staff was GREAT and very knowledgeable. We had a fabulous time and are already planning on another trip to zipline with a group of friends. I am excited to see what the level 2 course looks like when it is complete.E. Knight
We had a blast on Memorial Day celebrating my birthday zip lining!!! The staff is super knowledgeable and made the experience so much fun. We highly recommend to all ages!!!A. Maples
My brother and I planned a zip line tour at the Guntersville Al State Park but made reservations at Banning Mills by mistake. The day before our trip we called to confirm and was told we had reservation at the wrong place. They were friendly and helpful and were able to get our reservation straightened out .CS4240
That said, for our first time zip lining we had a wonderful time. We were a little nervous at first but after that first step off the platform, nothing but fun. Our tour guides, Blake, Callen, Sebastian and Jeremy were great. They were friendly, helpful and safe. We had one terrified lady in our group and the way they helped her was amazing. I hope they are there when we go back for level 2 and 3. Thank You for a great time.
We researched a few zipline sites before finding this one, and we are so glad we came to Banning Mills. The staff was professional yet pretty laid back. We went on level 1 and 2 with Eli and Danny. The courses were fun and each one had a beautiful view. Our only regret is that we wish we had taken a go pro to capture the memories! We took a cell phone, but I couldn't record while on the cable. Next time we will come prepared! Thanks Eli and Danny for a great time!Westerbann
My Girlfriend and I did the Extreme Tour all four levels with no add-on total time about 3.5 hrs .. I had never zipped before So level 1 for me was getting my feet wet a little wimpy for her. but 2-4(Screaming Eagle) was Fantastic. Two great guides Aaron and Jessie (top notch)...still talking about the experience a week later too whom every will listenC. Mann
Could not begin to express how amazing the couples getaway was. Zip lining was great but the flight of the falcon was more than we could ever imagine. For dinner, my life had the rainbow trout, which was the best meal we've ever tried. Staying in the treehouse overlooking the creek was icing on the cake. We will do it again in the fall when the leaves change colors.Leon A
Took my kid and his friends to zipline. they had a great time. We chose the level 4 which starts with level one and moves to more and more challenging walkways and ziplinePaul K
It is a bit pricey at $149 per person but it is really good. I had ziplined at North Shore in Haiwaii Climbworks. This had more ziplines and more challenging walkways and zipline than in Hawaii. We would definitely come again. If zipline isn't your thing, you can ride horses at $39 an hr or kayak and other recreational activities.
I am not a young woman. At first, I was so nervous about zip lining. There was no need for worry. This was an amazing and fun experience. It was great. My daughter and I loved it. Definitely! will do this again.Ann F
Our Sunday School class consisting of people from the ages of 40 years old and up enjoyed this experience! Some of our class members also rented a couple of rooms on location. There are a couple of tree houses you can rent to stay overnight and they are amazing! As far as zip-lining goes, the instructors are wonderful. I was VERY afraid and the instructor was so kind. This tour consists of a series of small zip lines and the first portion is the highest. Once you slide down that you will be a pro. You will wear gloves and use one of your hands to slow yourself down. That is a little tricky but also once you do the first slide, you will not have any issues. After going through all the basic zip lines you can upgrade and go onto the world's longest zip-line. Some of our class members continued and they enjoyed it.Tonya S
My wife and I [along with our Niece and Nephew] did the zip-lines [Level 3] which is why were there, but , far from why it was AWESOME! The meals were fantastic. The staff were so nice and accommodating. We played pool, sat on the back balcony overlooking the woods, whilst you can also hear the creek, the sounds of nature are all around you without eating you alive. We are looking forward to our next stay in October. BTW, the safety measures they take when it comes to zip-lining are second to none. Highly recommended.Brian P
We took our Central Church Adventure Couples zip lining on the level 1 tour and had an awesome time! Some of the group was very afraid of heights and the staffs attention to safety and working with the customers allowed everyone to have a great time. The entire group wants to do the other levels later this fall.Toby
I have always believed that it is never too late to say I'm sorry, I love you, or thank you...and in this case, a thank you in the form of a review is LONG overdue. My husband and I were married at Vinewood Plantation in Newnan, GA on October 30, 2015; it will forever be the very best weekend of my life. My husband and I first learned about Banning Mills from Vinewood's "Preferred Vendors" list. This was to be a destination wedding, as we, along with the majority of our family, is from Southwest Florida. All but two families were traveling from out-of-state to attend our wedding. It was important to us that we find lodging for our guests that was comfortable and allowed for a lot of familial congregating and visiting as weddings tend to double as family reunions. We could not have been more pleased! While we offered a more modern suggestion for our guests closer to town, the majority of our family and friends chose to stay at Banning Mills and EVERYONE had a blast!!! The food was delicious (everyone raved about all of the meals...we even hosted our Rehearsal Dinner in the Dining Hall); there were so many activity offerings available so that everyone had the opportunity to do something fun and make this a vacation for themselves (zip-lining, horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, etc.); there were plenty of venues that offered room for us to congregate and to visit with one another; and the grounds and surrounding scenery was just beautiful! The staff was warm, friendly, and accommodating. This has now become a spot where our family and friends have talked about returning for their own personal vacations. Thank you so much for providing such a special experience for me, my husband, and for our family and friends!Prange
My mom, dad and brother went zip lining here last year and they gave my husband and I a gift certificate for zip lining. For our 1 year anniv. trip I planned out the the whole weekend. We arrived Sat. morning, pumped and ready for our zip lining adventure (level 1). We had so much fun with our guides. They were so awesome. Then we had dinner there which was AWESOME and delicious! And our room was very nice and clean. It also had a beautiful view of the creek. And the hiking trails were wonderful. Very nice front office staff. I can not wait to go back!!Nicole L
We had a group of 9- all different ages- and EVERYONE had an awesome time! Banning Mills is a beautiful place, and zip lining through the trees was awesome. I do have to say that the guides- Jessie and Brad - totally made the trip more relaxing and fun! No matter what our group threw their way, they rolled with it and we're very helpful.Anna
We had so much fun today with y'all. Wish it lasted a little longer.S. Allen
