Being suspended from a cable is an experience usually afforded only to window washers and to the custodians who have to repaint Mount Rushmore "rock color" every year. Dare to dangle with this Groupon.
$69 for Zipline Tour ($102 Value)
On hikes through Texas Hill Country, professional guides take you to five ziplines ranging from 250 to more than 2,000 feet long. The tour ends with a ride on Texas’s longest zipline, where you’ll jump off a 20-story cliff and glide above Lake Travis. Along with approximately two hours of hiking and ziplining across five lines, the tour includes an hour of orientation and traveling by boat to and from your starting location. The entire experience lasts 2.5 to three hours.
Lake Travis Zipline Adventures
Beginning atop a 20-story cliff, Lake Travis Zipline Adventures's final zipline carries riders above Lake Travis for more than 2,500 feet at speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. To reach the cliff, a pair of professionally trained guides lead 2.5-3 hour hikes through Texas Hill Country, affording panoramic views of Lake Travis along the way. Before the finale over the lake, groups stop at four other ziplines that snake through canyons and soar above inlets.
Back on land, the company reserves more than 10 acres of Lake Travis shore for post-tour picnics and beach games. For guests embarking on a nighttime zipline tour or looking to linger in central Texas, Lake Travis Zipline Adventures rents out private cabins. Accommodations include a front porch overlooking the lake, as well as access to two private beaches.
