Boone, NC Original Zipline Tour!

July 1, 2014

Notice Update: July 1


Dear Friends,

Thank you for your support.  The landlord was able to work with the bank and keep their property and house.  The bad news is that they didn't notify us of this until June 12.  This was so far into the season that all of the interested employees we had applications, accepted other summer work. This and other moving parts of the business all needed to be locked in by May.  As for now, we have shuttered the business operations for the 2014 season and hope to open next year.  In the mean time, we are taking calls from interested parties from the area who may wish to purchase the business from us.  Our headquarters is based in Northern Illinois and consolidating our interest closer to our home base does have interests to us.  Please spread the word if you have friends interested in purchasing a successful adventure business. We have already had one local business show interest in leasing the course from us and we are looking for that pefect match to pull off a win-win for everyone.

Thank you,

Steve Gustafson

Dear Friends,

It is with regret that we are currently not taking reservations for this summer.  Our course is located on leased property and one of the landowners we lease with is in possible foreclosure.  As such, there is a real possibility that we may not open this year.  Therefore, we don't believe it to be ethical to take your funds or schedule tours until we know for certain the future of the landowner by which we do business.  We apologize for any inconvenience.

We hope to learn more by June 10 and will post any updates here on our website.

Thank you,

Steve Gustafson, Owner
