The tour begins at our office in Horseshoe Bend. After checking in and meeting the guides, guests will be driven in one of our vehicles to the zip line course which sits on the mountain side about 9 miles from our office. You will climb about 2000 vertical feet on the drive up taking you up into the cool mountain air at about 5000 feet elevation.
After the drive, your guides will give you a thorough safety briefing and help you put on your gear. Then it’s time to zip! The tour begins with “Warm Up” Warm Up is a mellow zip line about 200 feet long that puts you and your friends about 30 feet up in a majestic Ponderosa Pine tree. After that it’s on to the Wobbly Bridge, a 60 foot long suspension bridge that takes you into another Ponderosa Pine Tree. The Wobbly Bridge is a new addition to the tour. It will get your heart pumping for sure! As you gradually start to feel at home in your new tree top environment you will start looking around and soaking in the amazing views of the Boise National Forest and the Payette River Valley. But I digress, it’s time to Zip!! Next is the 300 foot Lovers Leap! This zip line is a bit longer and a bit faster and will have you grinning from ear to ear After that; the surprisingly speedy “Scooby 2” will bring you safely back to Mother Earth.
Now that you are an expert Zipper, after a quick drink of water, it’s time for the real deal!! The next Zip Lines start from ground platforms and land on the ground and are much longer higher and faster. First up is the “Turkey 2000!” This is a 2030 foot long screamer that will leave your eyes watering and your adrenaline pumping. You’ll reach speeds of around 50 mph! Eyewear recommended. (I’m not kidding) Then it’s on to “Hang ‘em High” This zip is a side by side zip line that is a little over 1000 feet long. It will have you and a friend hanging out about 120 feet above the ground. Then it’s on to “Double Barrel” This is another side by side zip line about 1500 feet long. Double Barrel is cocked, locked, and loaded and will have you and a friend racing high above the valley below! After that a scenic drive back to the office where you can relive the adventure with your friends, both new and old. There is very little walking on the tour and it will take about 3-3.5 hours depending on the size of the group.
This is truly a world class zip line tour and we are sure it will be the adventure of a lifetime for you and your friends and family. Thanks for zipping with us!
