Ziplining is great if you want to experience the thrill of flying but are terrified of accidentally touching clouds, which are actually really gooey. Get the right altitude with this Groupon.
$149 for a Three-Hour Zipline Canopy Tour for Two (Up to $298 Value)
During the three-hour tour, two EBL-trained guides lead groups of 4–10 across two 75-foot suspension bridges and six ziplines, which stretch from 225 to 1,000 feet long. Canopy tourists strap on harnesses, helmets, and other safety equipment (all included) and then soar over the Illinois River Valley at speeds of up to 30 miles per hour, all while gazing at hardwood trees and reaching heights of 90 feet. They also have the chance to win Zip Chicago merchandise. Participants should arrive 30 minutes early to sign waivers and watch a brief safety presentation, after which the group launches straight from the headquarters into the wilderness.
Though Zip Chicago sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
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.
