Zipline tours in late the Spring. Your tour will take you on an extreme adventure as you fly 100 feet over the ski slopes below at speeds of 35 mph. Our dual zipline is one of the longest in the Midwest at 1300 feet. We offer a full zip tour and a half zip tour. The half zip tour consists of zips one and two. It is designed to get you acquainted with how it feels to be on the zipline, and how to best take-off and land. Our full tour consists of zips one through four and offers more of a challenge as the last two zips are higher and faster. The full tour generally takes about an hour to complete.
