Located in nearby No Name, was the first company to design a zipline to traverse the Colorado River, adding a new dimension of excitement to the already popular activity. Ziplining is a cinch to learn and fun for a diverse group of people. After a brief tutorial by operators and being fitted with a helmet, harness, and gloves, visitors climb the zipline towers where they are connected to the zip cable. At the ready call, just step off the platform and let gravity take care of the rest.
The experience is more exhilarating than scary. Zipliners glide down the cable, soaring over the Colorado River and oftentimes rafters below. Each ride includes a return trip on the 350-foot long cable back to the starting platform. Keep in mind, children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult. The minimum height to zipline is 48 inches and the weight limits are 65 – 280 pounds.
