Our Mission

Help families build multi-generational memories through outdoor adventures delivered with unsurpassed attention to quality and friendly service

Our Purpose

For families wanting to create memories together, Highlands Aerial Park provides outdoor adventures and thrills for ages 4 and up, with a focus on enabling multiple generations to experience the adventure together. Our zipline tours offer some of the area’s best views of the Appalachian mountains, and we deliver every experience with legendary friendliness.

Our Core Values

We expect all of our employees to be driven by our core values:

  • Fun.  Although we work hard, we always have fun and create fun experiences for our guests. #ZipHAPpy!
  • World Class Service.  Everything we do will be the best that there is.  Period.
  • Friendliness.  Every guest will feel like a long time friend.
  • Hospitality.  We go the extra mile to show guests we care.
  • Honesty.  We value a no BS environment where everyone is open with one another.
  • Integrity.  We’re the same, even when no one is looking.
  • Growth.  We commit to learn and grow, always.
  • Encouragement.  We strive to encourage and build up, not tear down.
  • Multi-Generationalism.  We embrace guests and teammates of all ages.
