What You'll Get
Ziplines originally were invented for just two functions: sneaking hamburgers over the Berlin Wall and zazzing up presidential entrances to State of the Union addresses. Explore the adventure of zipping and zazzing with this Groupon.
$47 for Half-Day Zipline Tour ($89 Value), Plus 10% Access Fee ($8.90 Value; $97.90 Total Value)
This Groupon is valid only from April 10 to June 7 and from August 13 to September 20, 2012.
Reaching speeds of up to 40 miles per hour during three-hour tours, patrons zip along nine cables that total more than a mile in length; the longest cable is the final leg, measuring 1,000 feet. Seasoned guides lead the tours, pointing out views of the Sangre De Cristo mountain range and enlightening visitors on the area’s history and terrain.
Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours
A course of nine zip lines lets visitors take to the air, though the one-mile course through open air and tree canopies is only reachable after a moderate hike and choreographed kick-line through mountain terrain and historic stage coach trails. Guides also open the mountain up for ground exploration, leading tours aboard ATVs and horseback. All excursions end at the rustic Whitewater Bar & Grill, where guides compile the day’s photos into a slideshow to reveal the day’s adventures and whether local grizzly bears were actually Bruce Willis in a bear costume. Even when not adventuring, visitors can play volleyball and horseshoes outside the bar or work out adrenaline to live music each weekend.

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.
