Overview

WHAT TO EXPECT: The tour will take between 1 hour and 2 hours, depending on the number of participants in the group. There are currently five zip lines, but riders will only go on four because the last two are side by side! Go ahead and have a little friendly competition between a friend,family member, or even a co-worker! Wear good shoes! The hike will be about 1/2 mile total including climbing mild grades between the lines. The tour starts at the Zip Line Office on the lower level of the Canyon Springs Golf Course clubhouse. The guides will welcome the group upon arrival and have everyone 18 or older fill out a waiver. If there are minors in the group the responsible party for the minors will list them on their waiver. Everyone from 1 to 101 is welcomed and encouraged to try out the zip lines. The guides are very friendly and will lead the group through the swift but, very informational, mini training course which will take place on the practice line right outside the office. The guides will show the group how to ride the zip-line safely and ensure you are comfortable with the gear and in the harnesses. Once everyone in the group has had a chance to 'trust the gear', the group will be provided transportation to the first line along side the Snake River, the end of the fourth line will mark the end of the tour and the group will be transported back to the office. Guides will share information about the history, geology, and wildlife in the Snake River Plain and Idaho as the group travels between the lines.

While travelling we look for fun things for our kids to do. They had a blast. Fantastic employees who share in the excitement with you. They were very professional and even my 13 year old daughter was comfortable with them when being harnessed up.

This is awesome. 4 zip lines. And a 5th mega line to be added soon. The waiver is a bit scary but fun. 9 year old was hanging upside down and spinning while zipping. Pretty darn fun. Too short

Sorry, I just saw this. There is a little bit of a hike, but not much. Our 8 year old granddaughter did it without a problem. It is so much fun. There were 5 of us that went and each of us would have gone again.
