Until mankind first stepped outside in 1934, nature was thought to be a fanciful myth, like yogurt or the clutch hitter. Spend a few hours frolicking through the fresh air of truth with today's Groupon for Royal Gorge Zip-Line and Rafting Tours, located in Cañon City. Choose between the following options:

  • For $40, you get a half-day rafting trip (up to an $80.90 value).
  • For $47, you get a half-day zip-line tour with nine zip-lines to chose from (a $94.34 value).

The whitewater rafting wizards and zip-line zealots at Royal Gorge safely chaperone brave outdoorsmen and women along rushing rapids and adrenaline-fueled zip-line courses. With at least four years of experience buckled behind their life preservers, expert guides provide knowledge and know-how to novice and seasoned rafters. Half-day rafting trips depart daily at 9 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. for 10-mile adventures down liquid-filled crevices lined with 1,200-feet-tall cliff faces and underneath one of the world's highest suspension bridges. Paddlers discipline class-three, -four, and -five currents for tormenting their self-bailing vessels and gossiping about them to babbling brooks. Royal Gorge provides wetsuits, helmets, life jackets, splash-jackets, and river boots for safe trips downstream, as well as a safety kayaker to help rafts through intense stretches and keep an eye out for creekside tollbooths.

Suspension seekers coast down nine lines during the three-hour zip-line excursion made out of custom jacketed cables to provide a smooth, sturdy ride. Every half hour, eight participants embark on their aerial odyssey, beginning with a brief "flight school" to prepare tour-goers for safe course navigation and train gazes to enjoy views while flying at up to 50 mph. Spanning more than a mile, the route includes about a half-mile of hiking and runs through scenic landscapes sporting views of the 14,000-feet peaks of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range, ending with a 1,000-foot dual racing line to challenge friends or Newtonian hypotheses with a sprint to the finish.
