There were many highlights to the 2014 rafting season for us here at Colorado Zipline. The summer of 2014 will be known as the year of the zipline. We were able to add multiple features to our already daring and scenic zipline course for our guests to enjoy. A race zipline, 50 ft. free fall, and hanging bridges are just a few.
Though we had some highlights as a company, these pale in comparison to our guests experiences. Our number one goal every season is to provide our guests with the best possible outdoor experience. Below are testimonials from the 2014 season that we would like to share with you all. Thanks again for a great season and we hope to see you next year!
“I went with a group of six to celebrate my birthday, and we had an awesome time. A bit nerve wrecking to think we would be ziplining but when it came down to it, it was amazingly awesome. Our tour guides were K & J!!! Those two ladies did an extremely good job from start to end. We will definitely be doing it again.”
“Don’t change a thing… You are all running a top notch organization and I am proud to tell others that I spent the day driving 8 hours to take part in it! (Four hours each way from Crested Butte)… Best zip line guides in the world! We had been zip lining in the Dells and in Belize… so we have at least two countries to base this from! Free fall was fantastic… Please NEVER add a rail to the bridge…that was the best part! We flew back to Indiana thankful for all of you!
“My girlfriend and I did the rafting and the ziplining. JJ was our rafting guide and was excellent. We both enjoyed the entire experience! Lunch was also wonderful! JJ made us very comfortable and made the trip very exciting. I would come back and raft again for sure!!!! Great job JJ!!!!”

“We did the zip line/ rafting package. It was great fun for everyone in the family, and the guides were excellent. Would definitely recommend AVA to others.”
“My guides were awesome! They were a lot of fun as well as very helpful and patient with us. They were also very knowledgeable about our surroundings and told us a lot of the history of the area which was really neat. I had a lot of fun and it made my trip to Colorado so memorable! I will definitely come back to AVA when I return to Colorado in the future. You guys were great!”
“The reservation work was fantastic, and the actual ziplinine / jumping were great. We would definitely do it again. We hit some traffic and got lost along the way (our fault) but your group held the tour up until we arrived…”

“Can’t say enough positive things about our experience zip lining and white water rafting. Our kids, son age 13, and daughter age 8 LOVED it!!! Our guides were Brandon and Travis (T2). They were AWESOME. I don’t like heights and wasn’t going to zipline. I had about an ounce of courage and “want to”. Brandon took that and ran with it, encouraging me and reassuring me that he had a back-up plan if we needed it!!! The views were amazing and I was glad I didn’t let fear win!!! Travis (T2) took our group on the raft and what FUN!!! He was so good with the kids!!! My daughter said, “I liked Brandon because he helped my Mom overcome her fear so she could zip line” and “I liked Travis (T2) because he was funny and let me steer the raft”.”

“The entire experience with AVA was outstanding. We all had a great time and was sorry when our trip ended. In particular, our guides, Matt and Chris, were great.”

We had an AWESOME day thanks to AVA and your terrific guides! Our morning was zip lining…Brandon and T2 (Travis too) were our guides and they were both exceptional! Even though I have been zip lining 10 times prior to this trip, I was quite scared of your landings. They were both very patient with me, letting me choose where I was in the lineup of other guests, helping me, talking me through the rough spots and keeping me focused. They were great and I couldn’t have asked for better guides! They tried to keep the atmosphere light for the other guests and always were very professional! WOW, I can’t express how exciting, thrilling and just a plain blast our white water rafting was with our guide, Patrick! He has a way of just knowing he is in charge and will keep all of us safe…not once did I feel scared or thought I may end up in the water, Patrick had everything under control! He is calm, cool and in control and one can’t help but have a thrill of their life time! I am so glad we booked our adventure with AVA! We both had a great time and have more memories to share of our adventure…Thank you all for a wonderful day full of outdoor fun!!”

“This was our 2nd year of using AVA but our first year for zip-lining. This would rank in the top 5 activities I have ever done with my kiddos. Vicki and Kevin were our guides and made me and my kids feel safe while having the best time ever! Since last year I have recommended AVA to several of my friends that have traveled to Colorado and will continue to refer friends/family.
Thank you AVA for making our trip so memorable!”
