I love the feeling of flying over a forest canopy while admiring the nature around me.
Well, I wasn’t exactly flying, but sitting in a harness and sliding on a long zipline was close enough.
And I wasn’t admiring nature too much as it was zipping under me way too fast, but I still loved every minute.
While visiting Denver, I decided to go on this zipline adventure with Denver Adventure and chose the 6-zipline adventure with a media package.
This tour company offers Colorado’s longest and fastest ziplines, ranging from 850ft to over 1,900ft long, with speeds up to 60mph and up to 250ft above the ground!
The ziplines are located in a beautiful nature park nestled in the Rocky Mountains, only 30 minutes from Denver.
Their office is in the town of Conifer, where we check in, get weighed, outfitted, and then shuttled to the park. Weighing in is required because the weight limit is 245 lbs.
Before the short 5-minute trip to the starting point, we get our equipment, instructions, and GoPro camera for those who ordered the media package.
This zipline adventure happens at high altitudes and requires some hiking, so ensure you are ready for the exercise. One of the hikes between lines was steep and long; I was out of breath when I reached the next base.
Our guides were professional and very helpful. Before each zip line, they inspect your equipment, ensure you are secured to the line, turn on your GoPro, and let you have fun.
Each zip line of the six has its own character. Some are very long and leisurely, while others are short and fast.
After 3 hours of exhilarating fun, we returned to the office to drop off the gear and pick up our GoPro digital record.
I recommend this fun tour to anyone with an adventurous spirit.
