Imagine ziplining through the canyons near Vail, ending by the Eagle River. This is what Zip Adventures of Vail is all about.

You will want to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to your tour time, so the guides can equip you with a safety harness, helmet, and gear needed for the adventure.

Before the tour begins, your guide will demonstrate a quick safety briefing. After this, you’re ready to zip down the course which includes six ziplines crossing the canyon and the canyon plunge (the plunge is optional). It is definitely an adrenaline rush! You can expect to be on the tour for approximately 2.5 hours. Water and snacks are provided.
