Go ahead, get carried away...at Bear Mountain Ziplines in Luray, VA. Our Mama Bear Zipline tour includes 7 ziplines, for a total of 2700 ft of line racing through the forest canopy at up to 35 miles an hour. The last 1000 ft stretch brings you out over a meadow to land on the tower above our 3-story Bear Scramble climbing wall. Your trip starts with a rustic ride up a mountain road behind the tractor, where you’ll get comfortable with the zipline safety gear and procedures on the training zipline. Our professional guides have all been trained according to Association of Challenge Course (ACCT) requirements. We can confidently offer a safe as well as invigorating experience. We also offer a Bear Scramble climbing wall. Scramble up our 3-story climbing wall to ring the bell at the top. Our wall has multiple ascent paths and accommodates two climbers at a time, so you can come with a group and race your friends to the top! Access to the wall is available in half-hour increments, giving users many chances to improve their times, or try out a trickier path up. We use a state-of-the-art auto-belay system, allowing climbers to use the wall unassisted and rappel down under supervision by our certified guides. Please note that participants must weigh between 70 and 250 lbs and be at least 8 years of age to participate in the Mama Bear Zipline tour. The Bear Scramble can accommodate guests who weigh between 50 and 300 lbs.

I went zip lining for the first time with my 3 friends, we were met by Melissa and Liam, who were hilarious and friendly. They explained everything thoroughly. They wanted us to have fun overall and enjoy every second and we did! I will be BACK with more friends soon !!!!

Very cool experience. Staff was knowledgeable. Definitely will go back. Felt very safe every step/zip of the way. My youngest was worried but the "training/test" zip line resolved any concerns he had.

Had a lot of fun on the ziplines. It was scary at first but as long as you listen and pay attention to the e instructors you'll have a great time!

When you're looking for ziplining, pay attention to the distance of the lines. The big zipline park in WV touts an 800 footer. Bear Mountain has a 900+ footer. Excellent and friendly staff who are talented at making sure the seasoned and timid guests are well cared for. We completed the 11am run, and flipped right around and did the... More

We visited this zipline tour twice over two days and had an excellent time. On our first visit, we tackled the deceptively-named Baby Bear tour, a course with several obstacles such as "broken bridge" and "cargo rope" capped off by two zip runs. I don't recommend this for small children, because a couple of the obstacles (such as the wobbling... More
