The need to "feel the wind in your hair" is best fulfilled by ziplining, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Acquire a windswept look with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a six-zipline adventure from Denver Zipline Tours in Conifer (a $129 value). Denver Zipline Tours will provide transportation to the site from downtown Denver, the Tech Center, or any location west of Denver.
Adventurers at Denver Zipline Tours soar over forests and meadows along ziplines ranging from 850 to 1,900 feet in length, with speeds of up to 50 miles per hour. At the start of their 3.5-hour journey, adrenaline-fueled fliers don protective gear under the watchful eyes of experienced guides and judgmental squirrels. Then they’ll take to the trees to zoom down the six high lines, high-fiving envious pine trees and taking in views of the Rocky Mountains as they speed toward their destination. A short uphill nature hike between lines one and two and impromptu salsa dance between lines five and six work leg muscles along the way.
