Zip Line in Ohio, Family Fun in Ohio, Tree Frog Zip Line

Located only 20 miles west of the Millersburg, Ohio, Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast is the newest adventure attraction in the Mohican area, Tree Frog Canopy Tours, offering 4,025 feet of zip line fun, seven zip lines, and two sky bridges.  The attraction will reopen for weekends on April 15, 2011 and after May 1, 2011, will be open 7 days a week.  They will be closed on Easter.  Tree Frog Canopy is considered one of the Top 10 U.S. canopy tours.  It became a reality after an exhaustive search of the Loudonville-Mohican area revealed this hidden basin which meets all the criteria for a "World class" zip line experience.  A high-speed trek through the tree tops not only provides family fun but also education, as participants learn about the incredible biodiversity of the area's plants and animals, which is part of the experience. Tours consist of up to 8 guests and 2 professional guides.  Prior to departure, participants are given a safety briefing and are outfitted with safety gear that includes a body harness, pulleys, helmet, and gloves.  Tours include training and transport, typically lasting 2 1/2 to 3 hours.  Visitors zip through trees, traveling at 30 miles per hour while suspended hanging 125 feet off the ground.

With spring and summer approaching, consider Tree Frog zip line for a memorable and thrilling experience both for adults and children over 10 years of age.  Visitors must be in normal health and weigh between 90 and 250 pounds to ride the zip line. Tours continue, rain or shine; however, operations are suspended in high wind or lightening conditions.  Reservations are a must.  Tree Frog Canopy Tours has a wonderful FAQ page and informative website.  They are open Mondays through Fridays when the price is $75 per person; Weekends and holidays, $85 per person. Group rates are available.  Wednesday is "Family Day."  Admission for kids aged 10-17 is $50 each.
