"On my 66th birthday it was time to cross one off of the bucket list" - Lynne D. Lancaster, Pennsylvania

I researched the different zip line places and just got a good vibe when talking to Next to Heaven staff.  They were terrific.  Could not have asked for a more personable service.  They helped make my first zip line experience a birthday I will never forget.  I will go again and this time do the 9 lines.  In the meantime looking for a place to go in PA.  Won't be the same tremendous view as TN but I am "hooked". 

"best time we have had in years!!!!" - Dean, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

the staff is amazing and dedicated to ensuring you have a GREAT time.  first time to zip line for me my wife and cousin and I wouldn't have asked for a better experience.  The 9 line trip is more than worth the money for the experience that you will receive.  Don't go anywhere else cause they will not come close to this experience!!!

"Great Time!" - Tim & Jana Beaufort, NC

My wife & I found Next to Heaven, truly awesome!  The staff treated us excellent!!! The location & views were great.  We enjoyed our first time zip line experience so much that we returned for a second time during that same week.  The price was good and appreciate the religious foundation of standing for God.  Thanks Sincerely, Tim & Jana Beaufort, NC 

"First Time Zip lining!" -- Danny G. from Mississippi

This was our first time zip lining and we enjoyed the experience.  The staff was very friendly and patient and helpful.  We can't wait to do this again.  The fees are very reasonable!

"Horseback Riding in the Mountains" --  Greenfield, Indiana

 This stable was recommended to us by a couple who had taken their small children on the trail a few days before.  This is an unguided ride and very enjoyable.  The horses are well trained and know the way home, so no worry about getting lost.  The owner is friendly and gives thorough instructions before turning you loose to enjoy....
