Maybe you’ve heard about zip lining on tropical vacations to Costa Rica or the rainforest. Well, we now have one of these intensely fun attractions here in Eureka Springs! Fun for both kids and adults, the Ozark Mountain Ziplines is now open for the summer 2013 season!

Experience the thrill of a Zip Line Canopy Tour right in the heart of the beautiful Ozark Mountains. imageSoar amongst the trees 200+ feet above the ground from one platform to another – some as far as 1800 feet away from each other. See the vast, gorgeous, Ozark hardwood trees and limestone cliffs in a whole new way!

Ozark Mountain Zipline is designed to offer a completely safe experience. The trained staff oversees the ziplining and delivers two hours of fun per tour for any person, age 3 and up.

What is a Zip Line?

From a structural standpoint, the zip line tour is a system of cables and platforms, wherein the participant “zips” through the treetops wearing a safety harness secured to the cable. Wooden platforms suspended by cables serve as a landing base in each tree that you “zip” to and from. You also launch from limestone cliffs. All natural and minimal hiking on clear trails brings you to the bottom of the gorge when you are finished with your tour. An air-conditioned bus  (or heated – depending on the weather) is waiting for you with beverages to take you back to the welcome center, a few minutes away.

Each tour is $89 per person (plus tax). Group rates are available as well, call (479) 363-6699 for more information.
