Kids on Foothills Course at High Gravity Adventures

Modified Operations Plan for COVID-19

Updated Friday, May 22

We are excited to have you join us for outdoor adventure this summer at High Gravity Adventures.  As always, the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority and we are implementing some new policies and procedures that we want you to know about before your visit.  These enhanced procedures are intended to reduce potential risk to our guests and our employees associated with COVID-19.


Our enhanced operating plan is based on the most current information, directives, and guidelines from local, state, and federal health officials and relate to following aspects of your visit.

  • Individual hygiene
  • Management of physical distancing and movement throughout the facility
  • Personal protective equipment for employees and guests

 

In addition to our modified operations plan, we have reduced high-touch surfaces, enhanced our cleaning and disinfecting protocols, and implemented other changes as follows:

  • Waiver and photo/video kiosks have been removed. QR codes and links will be available so these can be accessed on personal devices.
  • All technical equipment including harnesses and helmets will be cleaned and dried between uses.
  • Implement regular and ongoing cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch areas and surfaces.
  • Modified operating schedule to allow adequate time for increased cleaning protocols.
  • Limiting facility capacity to manage interactions and support appropriate physical distancing. 
  • Special Events and Birthday Party Packages have been temporarily suspended.
  • Limitations to Group Reservations based on schedule and capacity changes.
  • Added signs about physical distancing signs and related markers throughout the property.
  • Limited two-way traffic throughout the facility.
  • Limited primary zip tours to members of the same party up to 4 people. We may be able to accommodate larger groups on a limited basis. Call 828-386-622 for details.
  • Platforms in the Blue Ridge and Foothills Adventure Park are limited to members of the same party.

We highly encourage all guests to wear a mask anytime during their visit when adequate physical distancing of 6ft or more cannot be achieved. Complimentary masks will be available upon your arrival.

Movement Around the High Gravity Facility

  • Physical distancing signs and markers have been placed throughout the property.
  • We ask that you minimize proximity to other guests who are not part of your group by keeping a distance of 6ft or more.
