The zip line park is designed to deliver thrills for everyone from timid first timers to extreme outdoor enthusiasts.

What is a Zip line?

zip line consists of a cable or series of cables mounted onto anchor points on either end of the cable that allow movement from one end to the other. They have been around a long time, sometimes used instead of bridges in remote mountain areas or to move supplies from one side of a river to the other. Zip line participants attach their harness to a trolley system that is mounted on the cable, using the force of gravity to traverse the line from one end to the other. Some zip lines go over canyons, some through tree canopies, while others start on man-made towers that participants climb to initially gain height. All this sounds technical and, of course, does not describe the fun part — the absolute thrill of flying through the air and screaming with delight! And don’t worry, we do teach you how to stop.

Kids of all ages are welcome! Our minimum height of 48 inches, and a minimum weight of 65 pounds with a maximum weight of 250 pounds for the Idaho Springs Zip line. All children under 14 years must be accompanied by a participating adult. Please call our office with any questions. Participants must be able to fit into our harnesses and be in good health. If you are pregnant, have heart trouble, or other medical concerns, please consult your doctor before participating. You will be required to sign an Assumption of Risk Waiver prior to your participation.

Because you’ll be wearing a climbing harness, we recommend pants but knee-length shorts are fine (no short shorts). No loose clothing or jewelry. Long hair needs to be pulled back. For your safety, bare feet, sandals and flip flops are not allowed. Closed-toe shoes are required. Sorry, no Crocs! We also suggest a strap for your sunglasses/glasses, and if the sun is shining, then bring the sunscreen.

A little rain won’t stop the fun! However, we reserve the right to delay or pause the adventure up to 45 minutes due to weather conditions that might affect your safety. If we are unable to resume the adventure, we will either reschedule your trip for a later time, provide you a credit for a future trip or refund you.

Since we can’t retrieve cameras dropped in the river, we have hired professional photographers to record your memories. They will capture the expression of your kids’ faces as they scream across the zip line! Be sure to stop by the photo display to review your photos that are also available for purchase.

Is it safe?

Safety is our number one concern! We use only the highest quality equipment, and our course has been designed, constructed, and inspected by a professional vendor member of the Association for Challenge Course Technology. Our zip line and ropes course staff is fully trained to ACCT standards, and inspects the course and gear daily. As with any outdoor adventure experience, some inherent risk is involved.

Our zip line has a limited capacity. Advanced reservations are highly recommended. However, we are happy to accept last minute reservations as space allows. Please call 720-734-3386.

We require full payment at the time of reservation and our cancellation policy differs, depending on whether or not you have purchased our Worry-Free Cancellation plan. We highly recommend purchasing our Worry-Free Cancellation plan, as it allows you the flexibility you many need. Please click here to review our cancellation policy.

Your trip time is your departure time! Please arrive by that time and check in promptly at our basecamp. Before participating, you will need to sign our Assumption of Risk Waiver. Our professional staff will then provide a safety briefing, demonstration, and fit you with a harness, helmet, and gloves. Now you are ready for take-off. Enjoy Your Flight!

We do not charge taxes on our services because we are not required to by law. We are, however, required to pay numerous fees to many local, regional and state organizations, including but not limited to the City of Idaho Springs, Clear Creek County, Division of Oil and Public Safety (OPS), Colorado Parks and Wildlife, Colorado Department of Revenue and our property owner.

In addition to those fees, our booking software and credit card fees charge a large percentage of each transaction. When weather cancels events, we eat this cost. If weather is not the cancellation reason, however, we must charge the customer to recoup that cost.

In addition, we are a voluntary member of numerous local, state and national organizations that offer regulatory and strategic support to us as an outfitter. These membership costs are not included in our fees but they do provide additional layers of safety and professionalism that not all outfitters adhere to but we are committed to following. These include: Colorado River Outfitter’s Association (CROA), America Outdoors (AO), Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) and more.
