What You'll Get
To make the body produce adrenaline, people usually must kick a cop in the chin, juggle soldering irons, or trap wild animals underneath wet newspaper. Today's Groupon gives you a more comfortable way to excite your cellular infrastructure: for $45, you get a Treetop Canopy Tour or an Extreme Zip Line Tour at Zip Line USA (up to $95 value), located in Reeds Spring near Branson. You must be 3 or older to take the zip-line tour. Those under 16 years must be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult 21 or older.
Zip Line USA gives ground-based adventure-seekers the thrilling experience of traveling along the treetops of the Ozark Mountains. Choose one of two altitude-enriched adventures. During the 90-minute Treetop Canopy Tour ($75 for adults, $65 for senior citizens), guests will walk along suspended platforms and bridges built up to 65 feet (or approximately 11 George Bretts) above ground. The Treetop Canopy Tour utilizes nine zip-line cables. For braver souls, the Extreme Zip Line Tour ($95 for adults, $85 for senior citizens) offers two and a half hours and more than four miles of Tarzan-esque travel, with guests taking to all 15 zip-line cables ranging in length from 250 feet to more than half a mile. As you soar through the foliage at heights of up to 380 feet above the forest floor, take in spectacular flying-squirrel's-eye views of the landscape while making acquaintances with the canopy's cordial avian life.
Guests will be fitted with a harness, helmet, and gloves, and then given a quick lesson on a short zip line. Zip Line USA's course has been designed by industry-leading zip-line experts, and all cables and bridges are meticulously inspected to make sure your ride is safe and secure. Glide past glorious greenery, fascinating wildlife, and the Antarctic penguin's holiday tree resort with today's Groupon to Zip Line USA.

About Zip Line USA
Zip Line USA’s steel cables carve more than three miles of winding trails through Ozark Mountain treetops, all ripe for exploration by guests. Designed by the respected brains at Universal Zipline Technology, the ziplines soar higher than 350 feet in the air at some points—just high enough to make eye contact with low-flying spaceships—and are dissected into chunks as long as 3,250 feet. Between each section stands a sky bridge or platform, where guides securely hitch tourgoers to cables, which they inspect each morning. Patrons zoom through the open skies for up to two hours during the day.
