If you've ever wondered what it would be like to soar among the trees, then have we got a surprise for you! Introducing the new Flying Squirrel Canopy Tour! This is the first challenge course canopy tour of its kind in the Deep Creek Lake area offering amazing tree-top views, agility challenges and 5 breathtaking zips from 180 feet to over 400 feet!
Your Flying Squirrel experience begins with a ride up the Bear Claw Conveyor Carpet. After unloading, you'll begin the practice / training segment of the tour where you will learn to clip in and out, get comfortable in your harness and acclimate yourself to take flight! Scurrying up the Cargo Net is the first challenge you'll face. Once secured on the first platform, a 195-foot zip will send you to the next challenge - a Burma Bridge. Navigate this 3-point rope bridge carefully to the next platform and prepare for the next zip which is approximately 153 feet. Catch your breath and get ready to walk the plank - the Plank Bridge that is. Once across, the next zip will transport you to the highest point of the course at approximately 50 feet high! Views of Deep Creek Lake will appear in the distance and you'll face the longest of 2 zips in the tour that span 400 feet across the tubing hill into a thicket of pine trees. Next you'll zip back across and land on the final stage, the 30-foot high Guard's Tower. From here you will take the Leap of Faith back down to solid ground to complete the Flying Squirrel Canopy Tour at Wisp Resort!
