As the next iteration of the continuing partnership between Coral Hospitality-GA and American Adventure Park Systems, Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge last week introduced its new Level 2 Aerial Adventure Park course.


“As a renowned fall travel destination for thrill-seekers and leaf-peepers, we are excited to now offer a longer, even more exciting zipline course just in time for the peak season at Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge,” said Heath Carter, regional vice president of sales and marketing at Coral Hospitality. “Our adventure park is a favorite for families, friends and groups looking to step out of their comfort zones together, and the Level 2 course will offer more opportunities for groups to take a ride on their adventurous side.”

With the addition of Level 2 park, travelers now have the opportunity to experience a total of 16 zipline and six skywalk bridges, making Amicalola Falls’ Aerial Adventure Park one of the largest in north Georgia.


While ziplining, adventurers soar between mountains and enjoy seemingly never-ending mountain views on the longer lines, which measure up to 2,000 feet in length.


 A key area of focus for both companies was minimizing environmental impact, preserving the sanctity of Amicalola Falls with educational elements to help visitors understand the importance of their ecological footprint.


American Adventure Park Systems has implemented its proprietary QuickTrekker closed belay system, the safest harness system in the industry. The belay system ensures guests are securely connected to lines throughout their canopy adventure, rather than transferring connections.


Amicalola Falls Lodge features a variety of mountaintop accommodations, sweeping panoramic views and a welcoming atmosphere with the newly remodeled Southern-inspired Maple Restaurant. In addition to the new Aerial Adventure Park, visitors can enjoy hiking, GPS scavenger hunts, 3-D archery, Birds of Prey shows and more.


The Aerial Adventure Park at Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge is priced at $59 per person for Level I and $99 for the full course, including the new Level 2. Prices include all necessary gear and experienced guides.


Additionally, Amicalola Falls State Park and Lodge is currently offering the ‘Elevate Your View’ package for travelers looking to extend the fun and enjoy an immersive Georgia State Park experience. The package includes one night stay in the lodge and a Level 1 Aerial Adventure Park tour for two.
