Course Description: Our 5 Ziplines, vary in length from 225' to over 650'. Perched on the edge of canyon walls our course is full of adventure. You can run and jump off the 'leap of faith' or maybe you prefer a trust fall backwards off P U Plunge. However you choose to fly, you will get a rush on this adventure that can't be matched in Colorado. Come prepared for an outdoor activity in the wild, complete with dust, dirt, sweat and limited facilities. Last year we had a resident bear make an appearance for your enjoyment. You will be launching and landing on dirt trails, so wear closed toe shoes (Required). We have water jugs on the course, but some people bring a camelback type hydration system.
Our guides are extremely fun and work hard to provide a safe and fun ziplining experience. If you like your ride please tip your guide, 20% is common for this industry. They will thank you.

Zip Line Construction and Technology
Zip Lines are growing in popularity around the country, not all are the same. AOW's Zip Line Tour experience has been engineered to exceed the highest standards in the industry. Our towers and cables are proudly Made In America. The Zip Lines have been built to exceed Colorado Department of Labor Regulations (The only Zip Lines in the State that meet these standards). Our full body harnesses, trolleys and brakes are built specifically for Zip Line use. We have passive braking systems as well as manual braking systems in place to ensure your adventure is safe and successful. But remember, all adventure activities do have elements of risk and signing of a waiver is required.
