A Zipline in St. Louis?


On our honeymoon in St. Lucia, Jeff and I went on a Zipline Tour through the rainforest. I for one was terrified to do it, but I knew my then new hubby wanted some adventure. He also told me if I went he would buy me a new purse. He knows a way to a girls heart. After the first run, I actually had a really great time, and almost 3 years later we still talk about fun it was. I'm pretty much a weenie when it comes to this kind of stuff, but it definitetly fantastic.

Well, I came across the Living Social Deal today for Eco Zipline Tour is just outside St. Louis, and it sounds a fantastic fun. It's a company right by Hermann and sounds like the perfect day trip. for $37, you'll get to do 10 ziplines -which is usually a $75 value!  So, if you make it a day date, it's more than 1/2 price! Once you do your zipping, then just head over to the wineries for a relaxing afternoon.

From my research, it looks like you'll be able to get up to 50 miles an hour and there is a zipline over 1200 feet. Holy Cow -  I actually think this is longer and more ziplines than our honeymoon.

This would even be a great trip for kids, and with the price cut more than half, how can you not give it a whirl. I'm so excited to book our reservations and pack a picinic lunch and enjoy a great glass of wine.

So you can take advantage of this deal, you'll need to act this weekend. The deal ends on Sunday night!

  3. Yes - I'm excited. I surpised Jeff this morning with it. He is highly against the wineries though. He's a beer man - so he says.
