Where Did Zip Lines Come From?
Guinness Book Of World Records
The longest zip wire course (combined length) is Screaming Eagle (USA) measuring 11.92 km (39,127 ft) at Historic Banning Mills, Whitesburg, Georgia, USA, and verified on 17 November 2012. At the time our course was measured it consisted of 135 ziplines including the 3,000 ft Flight of the Falcon, and would take approximately 12 hours to complete the entire course.
The tallest artificial climbing wall measures 41.89 m (137.42 ft) and was constructed at Historic Banning Mills, Whitesburg, Georgia, USA. Our climbing wall was measured on 9 December 2011. It was measured by William Hutson (Land surveyors & engineers, state of Georgia, License LS002312) of Georgia & West Inc., using a Topcon GTS 233W total station laser measuring device. The wall was climbed by Kalib Robertson, an experienced climber, in approximately 12 minutes on 9 December 2011.
We want your stay at Historic Banning Mills to be as enjoyable as you could possibly imagine. We are situated in historic Snake Creek Gorge. When you visit Historic Banning Mills you can expect to be greeted by a serene natural environment. While we offer modern amenities, being in a gorge presents challenges for modern conveniences like high speed WIFI while you are out enjoying the natural environment of Historic Banning Mills. You will have WIFI service in certain areas around the property, but it is not high speed. We do have high speed WIFI available at the main lodge with dedicated WIFI in our meeting spaces for our corporate guests.
