Will my child be able to ride the zipline on their own?
Since we operate Colorado’s Longest and Fastest ziplines the minimum weight to ride alone and not in a tandem varies from day to day. Typically, if the child weighs between 70 to 100lbs and the conditions are just right, they will be able to ride by themselves. If not, they maybe have to tandem for a few of the ziplines and ride a few ziplines on their own. For safety reasons, this will be decided by the guides based on a variety of variables the day of the tour.
How do the child(ren) ride tandem?
Other children, guides, and sometimes parents may be able to ride tandem with small kids (must be 5 years or older) as long as the combined weight does not exceed 210lbs. For safety reasons, the combination of the tandem or if a tandem is needed, will be decided by the guides based on a variety of variables the day of the tour. Typically, we tandem other children together or with another guide. A parent typically will not be able to ride with the child.
What if I’m scared of heights?
That’s okay! Our lines are designed with the client in mind. All of our ziplines are ground to ground which means mountain side to mountain side. You will start on the ground and land on the ground.
What if someone in our party “chickens out”?
If someone is your party chickens out, it is non-refundable, but they will still be able to go watch. Please keep in mind, we have been open for 5+ years and had MAYBE a handful of clients chicken out. The guides make you fee very comfortable and are very patient.
Is the zipline open year round?
Why not? We operate rain, snow, shine, Fall, Summer, Spring, AND Winter! Yes, winter! Snow covered trees are gorgeous! Just wear your ski clothes or dress in non-cotton layers.
Do we operate rain or shine?
Yes, we operate rain or shine. If there is lightening on the tour, we will pause and wait for it to pass over. Typically, a lightening storm, will last about 20 minutes and then the sun comes out. Please prepare by wearing non-cotton clothes (dry quicker and keep you warmer) and bring a rain jacket.
Are reservations and full payment required ahead of time?

For ziplining, jeans and shorts (not short shorts) are okay, just avoid loose fitted clothing (scarves, etc). Long hair must be pulled back in a low pony tail or a braid (recommended).
*Non-cotton layers dry quickly if it rains and keep you warmer.
Is there a weight / age minimum, for the zipline?
Our minimum age is 5 years old, no minimum weight. Depending on the weather and child weight, the child will ride tandem on some ziplines with another child, adult, or guide, as long as the weight does not exceed 210lbs.
One person in my party is over 225lbs, can that person join the tour?
Yes, they are welcome to come watch for $10/pp.
Can I still ride the zipline if I weigh close to 225lbs or slightly over?
Maybe. We may be able to go one to two pounds over the weight limit, but this is NOT guaranteed. There are a few different variables that will decide this (ex. temperature, moisture in the air, etc.). The warmer it is the stricter we are with the weight limit. We will privately weigh everybody on-site with clothes and shoes (not zipline equipment). If you weigh more than 225lbs, your adventure is 100% non-refundable but you will still be able to join the group as a watcher.
What if I need transportation?
For zipline adventures, transportation is available for $25/pp (minimum number of 2 people). Transportation must be booked 48 hours before trip departure.
