With the harnesses on we climbed on to a platform, met the guides that we were zipping with and took off. It was fantastic. Mallory and Philip were incredible and made what would have been a great adventure a thousand times more fun. Lily and Rosie were able to zip line solo for most of the lines but for a couple of them they had to go tandem. Since you all know what a fruit loop Rosie is the best way for me to explain how amazing these guides were is to tell you that when Rosie found out she had to go with Philip, alone, and go first with out anyone she knew at all, she took off laughing. It was such fun. We flew,for miles, 4 miles in fact on various wires. It was non stop fun. well we stopped occasionally when fools like myself didn't quite make it to the end.
The kids did great, no fear, no mistakes. Obviously Rosie wasn't tall enough to reach the line so she couldn't break so when she got to the end Philip had to catch her but Lily did the breaking part just fine. We also got to walk over a couple of swing bridges which in my opinion were almost as great as the ziplines. We were fortunate that we had one other family in our group and they were lovely. If you are ever in Seven Devils N.C. and want to Zip Line I highly recommend Hawksnest but you really need to try it with mallory and Phillip as your guides.
