Captain Zipline Adventure Tour is Colorado’s first world-class zipline tour. Today, National Geographic Traveler has named it a Top 10 Zipline in America and #4 of the world’s best ziplines.
On our tour, fly 200 feet above the Lost Canyon, suspend your fear and fly back in time over ancient lime kiln ruins and silver mines with 14,000 ft peaks above, and glide between 300-million-year-old cliffs on 7 cables that get longer and faster as you gain confidence and the need for speed – up to 40 mph!
Visit a 1,000-year-old packrat nest hidden inside the colorful petrified travertine flowstone formation, or take a short hike to the scenic Eagle’s Nest deck 500 ft above the Arkansas River’s whitewater to view Mt. Shavano’s “snow angel” landmark and the most productive trout fishery in Colorado.
Two experienced Zip Rangers securely harness and train our guests on the “Bunny Zipline”…then it’s time to fly! This family-friendly (ages 7 and up) adventure looks extreme, but almost anyone can do it! Photos and video are available to prove your high-flying superhero status.
