    The ziplines will operate in almost every weather condition and the weather can change quickly. Please check the local forecast and dress appropriately. Operations may be suspended due to thunder, lightning, high winds or other unsafe conditions at our discretion.

  • Safety is our top priority. Our guides fit you with state of the art equipment, then safety information is reviewed prior to ziplining. BOYNE Zipline guides have trained extensively in the proper techniques and procedures of safety. Each piece of equipment and our Ziplines are inspected daily. Each guest can fly relaxed, knowing that they are connected with two attachment points on each Zipline. Our Ziplines are designed to use a gravity braking system complemented by an arrester system. This means it's hands-free and worry-free for your enjoyment!

Zipline Adventure Tour

Our guided Zipline Adventure Tour features a series of 8 lines that take you to an elevation of 1,325 feet - where panoramic views come with the territory - and lasts up to 2.5 hours! Feel what itʼs like to fly at speeds of 20-25 mph on lines up to 50 feet in the air and experience the thrill of our new 100-foot rope bridge. Your adventure begins at the top of the mountain, followed by a descent of over 50 stories as you are routed through trees and across the slopes on your way back to the base area.

Reservations are required for the Zipline Adventure Tour. Walk-ins are welcome on a space-available basis, but reservations are the only way to guarantee your space. A credit card is required to confirm booking. A full zipline tour is $74 per person.
