There's a new "thrill ride" at Lake Guntersville that just might take your breath away.  I was able to experience it and live to tell you all about it.

I was invited to the opening of the level two zip line course at Screaming Eagle at Lake Guntersville.  I was asked if I wanted to actually ride on the zip line and I responded quickly with a "Yes!"

After all, who wouldn't want to soar over the trees at one of Alabama's prettiest state parks?  I drove up to the entrance of the state park and meandered my way to the beautiful lodge. 

After we registered, we headed as a group to the Gear Shack.  There we were outfitted with the safety gear and given instructions on how ziplining works.

There are two different lines at the park - level one and level two.  Level one takes about 2 hours to complete and costs $59 per person.  It's what I would consider the easy course.

Level two is another story and that reason we were all there.  Level two consists of a total of 15 zip lines that range up to 2100 feet and costs $99 (the price includes level 1 and 2 zips).
