For the event Zip Idaho is going to offer 2 9am tours (10 people on each tour) The tours will be on a much slower pace than our normal tours to give participants ample time to view this incredible event. With your reservation you will be provided with a free campsite at the Zip Line property the night before (if desired) so you won't have to worry about what is sure to be gridlock on Highway 55 the morning of the event. you will also be provided special viewing glasses, drinks and snacks.

The price for this once in a lifetime opportunity will be $200 per person.

Seats are limited so reserve your spots early!

Viewing only options will likely be available as well (without the zip line tour)

We are still fine tuning our plans for the day so check back for updates.

We may have a Helicopter shuttle available to avoid the traffic!
