Ziplining in Roanoke, TX

Finally! Ziplining is here!

This idea has been rolling around the NTO web site for over two years. We now have a date set. .

NTO member Kurt Copeland has graciously tracked down the necessary info and has an ongoing discussion in the fields below.

Here's how it works:

1. You purchase your ticket at Groupon ($29 while they last). If not available, regular price tickets are at DFWAP.com

http://www.groupon.com/browse/dallas?lat=32.78306&lng=-96.80667&address=Dallas%2C+TX&query=zipline

2. Receive your Groupon confirmation (in less than a day).

3. Make your reservation at the http://www.dfwap.com using the confirmation info in your Groupon purchase e-mail.

4. RSVP with us so we know to look for you.

5. Be at the DFW Adventure Park by 9:30 AM on Saturday, July 13. We zip at 10:00.

 

I'll post more information when I hear back from Jonathan at DFWAP. Thanks for your interest and I'll see you in Roanoke on the 13th!

    NOW, what's next?!! :) I would be up for planning a longer adventure, maybe a weekend camping / hiking / zipping in the Hill Country?

    July 14, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      That looks impressive! Ten zip lines totaling over a mile of zip lines for $80 Its about 240 miles (about four hours) so some carpooling would be a necessity, I think.

      That looks fun! We'll have to combine that with camping I think... make a weekend of it.

    First time zipping! Lots of fun - wish lines were longer and higher. Find other places to try (if same lower price)

    A mile or two East of DFWAP on 114 is a Waffle House. Possibly the only breakfast for miles. : )

    July 13, 2013

  • Vik

    Guys... Is it 10 am or 7.30 as the event post says.

    July 12, 2013

    • Vik

      For some reason it appears at 7.30 on my phone schedule.... But 9.30 is what I thought too...

      July 12, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      Hmm. I wonder if that has to do with a time zone setting or something. Anyhow, it's 9:30 AM and we look forward to seein' ya!

      July 12, 2013

  • Crispin

    Anyone wanna carpool from East Dallas, I live by White Rock Lake and have a diesel! :)

    July 12, 2013

  • Kurt C.

    By the way, just checked and there are four spots left at this time for the 10:00 time slot?

    July 12, 2013

  • KK V.

    Anyone going from north Dallas (Frisco/ Plano) area?
    Call me so we can car pool..phone[masked]

    July 12, 2013

  • KK V.

    I got registered for the 10am session. Groupon expired, so had to pay full price.

    July 11, 2013

  • Lee K.

    Have signed up wife and I thru Groupon but no answer as yet.
    What's next?

    July 8, 2013

    • Lee K.

      got one, waitin' on second item

      July 8, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      Make your reservation with DFWAP.com. They have instructions for Groupon on the DFWAP site.

      July 10, 2013

  • Vik

    Guys.. I am still having trouble applying the Groupon. Has someone else recently bought it. If so, could you please narrate the procedure.

    1 · July 8, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      Try calling DFW Adventure Park and letting them know about the issue. They should be able to resolve the issue.

      July 8, 2013

    • Karen S

      Hi Vik. If calling the adventure park doesn't do it I would call Groupon. I've had to call them before to help me use their voucher.

      July 8, 2013

  • Crispin

    Alrighty, I have RSVP'ed and I'm looking forward to it!

    July 7, 2013

  • Vik

    Hi All...I bought the Groupon voucher but would you know what is the link to use it. I am trying to use http://www.dfwap.com/dfwap/zipl...­ but it is not accepting the voucher. Any suggestions.

    July 6, 2013

  • Kurt C.

    Hi, folks! I see nine people listed as "Going" zip-lining on Jul 13th for the 10:00 AM slot at the DFW Adventure Park and, when I checked with DFWAP just now, only four slots had been reserved. That's great news because there are still eleven spots left for that time slot but it also means five people on the list have not made their reservations with DFW Adventure Park. I don't know if it will fill up as time gets closer but I wouldn't want anyone to miss out! Take care and I'll see ya next week!

    July 6, 2013

  • Lea

    I am looking forward to meeting new people and going on a little adventure!

    July 4, 2013

    I hear the zipline park in granbury area is amazing

    July 5, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      We may have to check out that one next. I'll look into it and find some details to share for a potential future meetup.

  • beth

    Well...I'm within the weight limit...not sure I'm willing to chance it. Zip lining is on my bucket list!

    July 2, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      Looks like you'll get to go after all! Besides, you have to take your ten-year-old niece, right? 'hope to see you there!

      July 2, 2013

  • beth

    Holy crap, I want to do this! But I am too fat. Can my 10 year old niece go?

    July 2, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      Not sure about the lower age and lower size limits. You may want to call DFWAP and ask them specifically about details and precautions for kids.

    Did this last year with my family for my 50th birthday!! We had a blast...well most of us, LOL. Some of the family got scared of the heights. The crew was outstanding! Y'all will have a blast.

    June 26, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      Thanks for posting, Tammy! Did you go to the one in Roanoke? How high do they get? I have not done this one yet. 'glad you had a fabulous 50th! :)

      Hi Kurt, yes it was the Roanoke one. I can't remember how tall they get but the first one is 40 ft., or four stories high! After the first one, and the initial shock,it's just plain fun! The scariest part for me was climbing the ladder. Let me know if you agree, LOL.

      1 · July 1, 2013

  • Kurt C.

    Remember...You must be pre-paid and have your reservations made at least 48 hours in advance at DFWAP.com for this event! There were 13 spots left for the July 13th 10:00 A.M. slot when I called this afternoon.

    'hope to see you there!

    Thanks

    Kurt

    • Mark R.

      Cool! Thanks for letting me know. See you there.

      June 23, 2013

  • Mark R.

    Hi All, Mark here. I'm an Asst Organizer for NTO. If someone is willing to be the Event Host for this ziplining event, I will put it on the calendar and we can start planning for this.

    Prices: $60 for 6 zip-lines; $80 for 9 zip-lines. Reservations only.

    Purtis Creek State Park is nearby; we could also make it a camping and hiking weekend for those that want to.

    This is a great idea and I think we should do it!

    If someone will volunteer to be the Host, I will help get this thing planned. Fair enough?

    Thanks!

    June 23, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      I was going with the Roanoke location, 13055 Cleveland Gibbs Road, Roanoke, TX (There is a link at the top of this event page).

      June 23, 2013

    • Kurt C.

      Here's how it works: You purchase your ticket at groupon (while they last, see the link in an earlier post from today) and, when you receive your groupon confirmation (in less than a day) you then make your reservation at the http://www.dfwap.com­ using the confirmation info in your groupon purchase e-mail. At the time of this post, all fifteen spots for the 12:30 time slot on Saturday, July 13th are available. This can change at any time. I have e-mailed the group coordinator at DFWAP to see about making sure all of our group can go in case we go over fifteen people but you are not going to get a better deal than the $29 groupon ticket so, if you're going, go ahead and by the ticket now while its still up on groupon! I'll post more information when I hear back from Jonathan at DFWAP. Thanks for your interest and I'll see you in Roanoke on the 13th!

    Everyone is commenting on a date? And, to me, $55 seems very high

    May 16, 2013

    • Karen S

      It is $29 right now on Groupon.

      1 · June 1, 2013

  • Karen S

    I bought 2 tickets for this from Groupon a couple days ago, not sure if it's still available for the discounted price. If someone wants to get a date started let's do it together. That would be fun!

    May 31, 2013

    • Karen S

      I just checked and they still have it being offered on Groupon. Is anyone interested?

      May 31, 2013

  • Melet P.

    $55 a person and only open fri, sat and sun and it has to be reserved 48 hours in advance.

    May 16, 2013

    Hi, this is Mimi. What is the date again for this event?
