Cliffside Zipline

Voted 2018’s Best Adventure Park of the Rockies by Elevation Outdoors!

Our Cliffside Zipline in Idaho Springs is more than your average zipline tour. For one thing, rather than typical zipline platforms built from the ground up, our platforms are built directly into the cliffside. Rather than just soaring over fields, you’ll be zipping through the trees from cliff to cliff of Idaho Springs. Additionally, our heart-pumping features take this aerial adventure to the next level. You will find yourself jumping 50 feet off a bridge with a few seconds of free fall before our auto-belay feature catches you and slowly lowers you to the base of the cliff. And that’s just the start of it! See more below:

Course Features

  • 3,500 feet of ziplining on 6 lines
  • 50-foot Cliffside Free Fall
