Historic Banning Mills joins a growing list of concessionaires throughout Alabama’s State Parks System that pay to construct, maintain, and operate attractions at parks. No taxpayer money or funds from Alabama’s State Parks are being used in the construction of these ecotourism attractions and aerial adventures. Historic Banning Mills was chosen after a competitive bidding process.

Lake Guntersville’s ecotours will have three levels of development. The first level, opening to the public in May, will have a total of 11-14 elements between 20 and 75 feet high. Seven to Nine elements will be ziplines from 75 to 400 feet in length, the ecotour will also have four or five wooden suspension bridges. The designers of the ecotours never know what Mother Nature will throw at them.

Historic Banning Mills boasts the longest zipline canopy tour in the world. But Banning Mills owner Donna Holder says they plan to set a new world record. “We plan to complete level 1 tours at four state parks over the next year. After the level 1 tours are complete we’ll work with American Adventure Park Systems to expand the aerial attractions around the state. We’re still working on the process and plans, but we hope to create the world’s longest zipline at Cheaha State Park, at 8,000 feet.”

“We use every precaution when designing and building these aerial adventure courses,” says Holder. “For nearly 20 years at Historic Banning Mills, we’ve worked to not only preserve the incredible ecosystem of the Snake Creek Gorge, but we’ve also been able to educate guests about the natural and cultural history of Banning Mills. Ecotour guests get a unique and close up look at the undisturbed natural environment. We’re thrilled to give Alabama Parks’ guests the same unique experience.”

The Alabama State Parks is a division of the Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. The division operates and maintains 19 parks encompassing approximately 48,000 acres of land and water. These parks rely on visitor fees and the support of other partners like local communities to fund the majority of their operations.
