Southern WV resort starts nighttime zip lining

Posted: Updated:

OAK HILL (AP) — As if zip lining weren't exciting enough. Now ACE Adventure Resort is offering nighttime events.

The 1,500-acre resort along the New River near Oak Hill will offer Friday and Saturday night tours, starting now.

Marketing director Beth Gill says the trip takes about two hours and includes seven zip lines and one sky bridge.

The night course is part of a zip line network expanded last year.

In addition to the usual safety gear, nighttime zip-liners will also get a head lamp. Gill says that with limited vision, the senses of hearing and touch have to take over.

During test runs, it's the leap off the platform into the darkness that gets the most reaction.

ACE guides more than 50,000 whitewater rafters on the New and Gauley rivers a year.
