$149 for Ziplining Adventure for Two ($298 Value)

During a three-hour canopy tour, two guides lead groups of between 4 and 10 along two 75-foot suspension bridges and six ziplines, soaring over the Illinois River Valley at speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. All safety equipment is provided—including harness, helmet, and antigravity boots—though visitors should arrive at the company headquarters 30 minutes ahead of their appointed time for a brief safety presentation, after which the group launches straight from the headquarters building out into the blurry, windy wilderness.

Zip Chicago

Located high above the wilderness of the Illinois River Valley, the cables, suspension bridges, and treetop platforms at Zip Chicago are fully designed and licensed by the EBL (Experience Based Learning Inc.)—a leading authority in ziplining adventures. Eight half-inch cables ranging between 225 feet and 1,000 feet in length snake through the hardwood forest, providing bird's-eye views of the Illinois River Valley from up to 90 feet above the ground. Throughout the tours, fully trained guides ensure every detail results in a safe, exciting adventure, from clipping into the harnesses properly to converting cell phones into grappling-hook mode.
