What You'll Get
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 $47, you get a half-day zip-line tour with nine zip-lines to chose from (a $94.34 value, including fees) at Royal Gorge Zip-Line Tours in Cañon City.
The zip-line zealots at Royal Gorge safely chaperone brave outdoorsmen and women along an adrenaline-fueled array of courses. Suspension seekers coast down nine lines, each of which is custom built to ensure a smooth, safe ride, during the three-hour zip-line excursion. 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 40 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.

About Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours
Adventurers can find a thrill with Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours’ classic course of nine zip lines spanning a one-mile path through open air and tree canopies, or the extreme course featuring 11 zip lines over a two-mile course. Closed toed shoes are necessary as you'll be taking some short scenic guides between each zip line. During the tours, guides point out views of the surrounding areas, which include Sangre de Cristo mountain range, the Royal Gorge plateau, and the Arkansas River. At the end of the expedition, guides will compile the day’s photos into a slide show so you can reminisce about your adventures.
