This tour is not for the faint of heart. Your nightmare begins with a corpse-guided tour along a serial killer infested forest to then be hauled into the trees among complete, utter horror. Once in the trees you will be launched in complete darkness ... alone, afraid and vulnerable ... along a screaming steel cable hundreds of feet along Mountain Ridge Adventure's awesome Zip Line Park. The terror occurs every Friday and Saturday night in the month of October from 7pm-10pm.
