If you are a thrill seeker and are looking for a unique way to celebrate Halloween then head for Columbus, Ohio and sign up for a Freaky Flight being offered by ZipZone Canopy Tours and experience a zipline ride like no other -- one that will leave you totally in the dark. Columbus is approximately a 2 hour drive from Cleveland.
Freaky Flight Available only during Halloween week for just 3 days (October 28, 29 and 30), the Freaky Flight zipline tour provides a frightening adventure and some scary fun for its riders as they soar above the tree tops in total darkness. You will be zipping over ravines and streams and other Columbus natural wonders --- not that you will be able to see any of it because you will be in the dark.
Festivities also include a chance for guests to participate in a costume contest and you don't want to miss taking part in the pumpkin chuckin' contest. ( Chuck a pumpkin at a target while zipping and try to win a prize.) If you wear a costume, make sure it is zipline friendly and can be worn with zip lining gear. A winner will be declared in the costume contest (chosen from all Freaky Flights throughout the 3 days) and will receive a free zip tour good through 2014.
You must be at least 50 pounds in order to participate in the Freaky Flight and you can be no more than 260 pounds. The zipline is not recommended for anyone with heart conditions or neck/back problems or women who are pregnant. Cell phones are prohibited on the ride.
Freaky Flights will be offered at 7 p.m. and 7:45 p.m. October 28-30. Cost is $64 - $69.
