Zip lines originally were invented for just two functions: sneaking hamburgers over the Berlin Wall and zazzing up presidential entrances to State of the Union addresses. Zazz up your entrance to the Ozarks with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a zip-line canopy tour from Adventure Ziplines of Branson (a $59.99 value).
Open seven days a week year-round, Adventure Ziplines of Branson sends treetop trailblazers zooming through the forest canopy at speeds of up to 50 mph on zip-line canopy tours. Following 20 minutes of orientation and training, tour-goers strap on a harness, helmet, and gloves, embarking on an approximately 90-minute journey that includes seven zip lines, three sky bridges, an ATV ride, and earl-grey tea on the Space Station Mir. Views from heights of up to 70 feet allow zip liners to behold a wholly unique perspective of the Ozarks. Two experienced guides lead the tour, ensuring that zipsters and aspiring Tarzan imitators are safely secured to the dual-cable line. Customers must make reservations and are required to wear closed-toe shoes appropriate for climbing.

The secure lines use a backup-cable system that prevents accidents, ensuring trips along the 2-mile tracks occur without snags.
