Gilford New Hampshire-Be one of the first as Gunstock will be offering a moonlit zip tour this Saturday night. The ZipTour participants will be the last ones up the Panorama lift on Saturday, March 10th at 4pm, where they will be greeted with an assortment of cheeses, veggies and dips. They will then watch the sun go down on the back of the mountain while the moon rises over Lake Winnipesaukee. Sam Adams will then provide a sampling of their products paired with Chicken wings and Hog Wings to complement the beers.
Guests will head out in small groups to descend the mountain on the ZipTour sometime around 6 pm which includes the 4th and 6th longest ziplines in the world, in the dark with just headlamps. “Its an incredible feeling” says Greg Goddard General Mananger, “we have had the opportunity to test it at night and it’s a completely different experience than during the daytime. We are looking to develop different night tours that we can run during the summer season as well.”
The cost is just $95.00 and that includes tax and tip on the food service, the ZipTour and all the equipment necessary for the tour. Saturdays weather looks to be nice and sunny, so the views at sunset and moonrise are going to be spectacular.
The tour is limited to 24 people and reservations are required. Call 60-737-4388 for reservations and all the details.
