CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- Travel + Leisure Magazine Online is declaring Gravity New River Gorge Zip Lines one of the world's coolest in its April edition.
Gravity is part of Adventures on the Gorge in Lansing, a resort offering whitewater rafting and other activities. Partner Dave Arnold tells The State Journal the owners believed in the concept.
Gravity is the state's longest zip line, but not its only one. TreeTops offers a leisurely three-and-a-half hour excursion through Mill Creek Canyon, several miles from the gorge.
Tourism Commissioner Betty Carver says zip lines attract both novices and adrenaline junkies.
This spring, Adventures on the Gorge is also opening TimberTrek Aerial Adventure Park. It has 63 obstacles, bridges, swings and zip lines in the trees.
