Boyne Mountain debuts 'Zip of Terror' Haunting Halloween Experience

Witches and ghosts won’t be the only ones flying through the air this Halloween!
Boyne Mountain is turning its Zipline Adventure into a haunted happening. Halloween weekend, Friday, Oct. 29 and Saturday, Oct. 30, Boyne Mountain’s 10-line zipline transforms into the Zip of Terror, a thrilling and spooky, after-dark phenomenon. 

Those not shy of a good scare can suit up with zipline gear and set out for the top of Boyne Mountain where the darkness settles in and the night delivers an eerie quietness. Zombies, goblins and other creepy characters send you zipping through the woods at speeds of up to 25 miles an hour and dropping over 50 stories. If that’s not scary enough, walking from line to line is where the true terror sets in. Only the light of the moon and glow sticks guide you along the Zip of Terror while screams, groans, and growls, call out from the night and fear lurks around every corner. WARNING: Not recommended for the faint of heart.

Reservations are suggested for the 6 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 9 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. departures and can be made by calling 231-549-6006. Riders must weigh between 60 and 275 pounds and be a minimum of three feet tall. Cost is $45 per person, or $40 per person for parties of five or more. Nightly hotel lodging starts at $79.

Boyne Mountain also offers the annual Halloween Hoopla, October 29 and 30, at Avalanche Bay Indoor Waterpark. Activities include Halloween arts and crafts; witches brew and treats, the great pumpkin race, spooky story time, haunted hallway, hayrides, bonfire and s’mores and trick or treating. Packages start at $125 per night and include lodging for a family of four at Boyne Mountain, unlimited waterpark access, arcade tokens and all the Halloween Hoopla fun.

My family (wife and three kids, sometimes the dog) and I have been RV campers since 2007. We own a 2000 Trail-Lite B22 Bantam hybrid, our tow vehicle is a 2006 Trailblazer LT EXT (5.3 V8 with 3.73 Rear Axle Ratio), and our setup includes the Equalizer sway controller. Looking to upgrade the camper in the near future, but until then we get out 2-3 times a month in season.
