A Wisconsin Zip Line Adventure
Posted on: 1/7/2011
Zip lining is no longer something you can only do while on an exotic vacation in the rainforest. It’s an exhilarating experience you can find right here in Wisconsin. (The following options range from $30-$95 per person, and reservations are required.)
We’ll start in Ellison Bay in beautiful Door County where Gravity Trails offers a zip lining adventure for people 8 years and older. The tour itself lasts one to two hours depending on the size of your group. On your trip, you’ll soar over wooded areas, ponds and sand dunes. For a special treat, take part in the Twilight ZipLine. You’ll walk the trail to the Zipline with candlelight and glowsticks before ascending a climbing wall to a 20-foot platform. Then, you’ll descend like a shooting star.
For more ziplining fun, head to Lake Geneva where you’ll find two amazing courses. Aerial Adventures offers a 200, 300 and 600-foot-long zip line. If you’re heading to the 300-foot zipline, you’ll start with a 40-foot tower climb that includes a balance beam and a platform. For the 600-foot adventure, you’ll ascend a 50-foot-high vertical playground with a dozen different climbing elements all designed to get you to the top. This course is located next to the Walworth County Bike Trail.
Nearby you’ll also find Lake Geneva Canopy Tours, a unique eco-adventure for all ages. The folks here guarantee memories to last a lifetime on their eight thrilling ziplines. Between zips, participants can enjoy spectacular views of the forest, Lake Como and the surrounding countryside. You may even learn a little something about the local flora and fauna. This 100-acre adventure park is home to deer, fox, turkeys, hawks, eagles and other Wisconsin wildlife. For a real adrenaline rush, try the 1,150-foot-long Dual Racing Zipline.
Bigfoot offers six lines with more than 4,300 feet of soaring through the air. The course covers 30 acres and sends you sailing over the water and through the woods.
Wilderness Canyon is located on the Wilderness Resort grounds and provides five zip lines strewn from six towers hovering 60 feet in the air.
At Vertical Illusions, adventurous people will head to the top of Chimney Rock Park, a 500-foot bluff with 100 mile views, stunning plants and curious wildlife. There, you’ll ride from eight tree-to-tree zip lines without touching the ground or climbing any stairs.
So grab your courage and zip your way to an unforgettable time.This entry was posted in Things to Do
