Find Your Perfect Adventure




“Everything went smoothly with Jake and Maggie as my guide. They explained the procedure along the way and were very courteous. Thanks to them, my experience zip lining was unforgettable.
If I have chance to do it again, I wouldn’t hesitate. Thanks again”

“This was our first zipline experience and we had a ball. It was a fantastic experience.”

“It was quick and easy. Everyone was highly trained and professional which made for a great time for everyone.”

“The guides, Bear and Craig, and staff were very friendly, informative and a real hoot!! I have already recommended you to family and friends. I’m looking forward to using AVA again for more adventures!!”

“The equipment, facilities and guides were top notch. I was apprehensive going in, but after seeing your setup and how you operate, I felt at ease. Great trip. Also, I completely blew my first appointment (Thursday at 10AM) and you guys rebooked me to Friday. Thank you for that.”

“Our guides were very friendly and knowledgeable. They made us feel safe and comfortable every step of the way. My oldest daughter has a disability and they were very patient and kind to her, which made her experience very fulfilling. I will definitely recommend the zip line to friends and family, and we look forward to going again. We also want to try the rafting experience next. I can’t remember our guides names, as I have a terrible memory…but we were there on Sunday, Sept. 2nd at 1:00 pm, our group had 5 people (our family) and the other family had 4.”

“Our tour guides were Brian and Maggie, and they were fantastic! Brian is a riot!! Thanks for a GREAT first zipline for my husband and I. We’ll be back!!!”

“This was the best outdoor experience a person can have. It’s exciting and such a rush! I’d recommend it to everyone looking for an adventure and thrill. It definitely meets that goal.”

“Ben and Frank made the ziplining experience very exciting! Eric kept the rafting trip very entertaining by changing the course down the rapids by doing 360 degree spins. All the people were very friendly throughout the whole adventure.”

“Fantastic. Zip Line course was very well constructed. Scenery was great. Shawn (or Sean?) and Bear were great guides. Very safety conscious but did not prohibit us all from having a blast. They even encouraged us to be a little daring but only after they showed us how to be safe being daring. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We had been zip-lining in Roatan, Honduras before and this was our first time in the US. Great outfit. I have already spread the word.”

“We did a groupon with you for four people. We ALL loved the adventure and have plans of coming back with more people! Groupon was great exposure for you and I’m glad to know that you are so close to Denver. It’s always fun to get out of town and still not have to drive a long way to have a great time! We are going to have to try and rafting, also!

“Thanks for the FUN!”

“Everything about our experience was awesome! Guides were informative and funny, making the trip even better!”

“Shawn and Shane were awesome! They really made the trip a lot of fun with their humor and upbeat attitudes! The three of us had so much fun with them, we will be booking the raft and zip combo trip next summer and requesting them as our guides! What an incredible time and we will definitely recommend your company to friends and family!! Thank You!!! “

“Our guides were the best! They were friendly and fun! Made the outing that much better! I will for sure do this again next time I’m in the area. “

“I thought Dave and Bear were great guides. They were personable and very knowledgeable about everything. They made me and my children feel very comfortable.”

“I have been doing trips with AVA since 2005 and I will never use anyone else. Your guides are very experienced and your courses are some of the best I have ever been on! Thank you for always exceeding my expectations!”

“First time zip lining and it was amazing. Our instructors Bear and Shane were awesome! They were really helpful and detailed. Also, made the experience very fun. Can’t wait to have another adventure with those guys.“

“We left this on yelp as well: My sister and I did the Zipline tour at AVA in Idaho Springs and it was SUCH a good time!! I had been ziplining before, but my sister had not. We had all age ranges and experience levels. Our guides, Jeff and Sean, were fantastic. The booking process was really easy and everything was perfectly on time and organized from beginning to end. I definitely recommend them and will bring visitors!!”

“The new zipline is great fun! The staff and guides were excellent! We enjoyed it so much we will be back and will bring the whole family!”

“As a couple nearing the 80’s mark in years, we approached ziplining with a nervous anticipation. Given the thorough orientation by our guides and the opportunity for a beginner’s practice run, the nerves quieted and we excited to get started. The setup with six different lines that progressed from moderate to free acceleration certainly enhanced the experience. Our guides were very safety conscious and efficient in hooking us up along with being very personable as they got to know us by name and dealing with our different approaches to risk. My wife and I agree that our guides were outstanding and certainly a valuable part of AVA and our experience. Duane Florschuetz”

“Unbelievable experiences…love the guides too…effervescent and very safety conscious. Love their jobs! Made one feel very comfortable!”

“Our guides were just great. We had a group of eight–our family of four and two more senior couples. Anna and Kelsey took the time to make sure that everyone was as comfortable and confident as they could be. They explained in detail the safety mechanisms in place and what to expect from each line. They were positive and upbeat the entire way—and made sure to learn all of our names, giving us a personal experience. We couldn’t have asked for better guides.”

“Wish I could give my guides (Wiggins and Rick) a 7 out of 5. They were great fun, knowledgeable and a true treat for my nephew who was a first timer to zip lining. They made everyone feel safe and capable. I run my own business and wish I could get more employees like those two. Nice catch! I will definitely be recommending your lines to friends and will probably be back with more family next summer”

“My young son’s 1st zipline experience was fantastic and the guides were quite professional and fun. Equipment and safety was first rate. Continue with the great work and fun times you provide!!”

“We had an amazing time. Frank was our rafting and zip lining guide. He made sure we had an awesome time. I will recommend AVA to all my friends. Thanks for making our vacation so memorable. “

“Very simply, from the phone staff during questions/booking, to the guide during our activity, AVA seemed to have more knowledgeable, helpful, friendly staff. Would definitely use AVA again given the chance”

“I just wanted to say that we had an absolutely amazing adventure! It could not have been more perfect! Starting with Fish & Patrick for our zipline in the morning, and Patrick continuing as our day and half guide for our rafting trip. He was perfect! He led his all girl group to perfection and we were delighted to see that we made it through many of the twists and turns like a charm, while we saw other companies getting “stuck”! Patrick, Miles, Matt & Conner were the perfect “hosts” and it was so nice to sit back and relax at camp while they prepared a wonderful dinner and breakfast for us! I hope to bring my son next year as a graduation present. I can promise that I will HIGHLY recommend your company to anyone who is considering a rafting trip! KUDOS and THANK YOU!! “

“We had never done this before. Our 8 yr old son wanted to so this. Your staff made it an amazing adventure for him. Fish & Bobby was our guides. Wonderful young men. It was a great adventure for our family.”
