paul b, thank you for the wonderful review. It appears you have visited both of our zipline courses in Colorado. We are always excited to see out of state people join us for a day of excitement and adventure. You are also correct, we DO have some excitement planned for 2014 here at the Glenwood Canyon Resort - Kevin S.,... More

The zipline is great for first-timers but not for anyone who has zipline before. Would have been great to have had more ziplines.

Was supposed to be an hour, but most, or half, was instruction and paperwork. My husband and 2 granddaughters did this, which was across the Colorado River. They enjoyed it but were disappointed in that there were only zipping across and back.

We stayed at Glenwood Canyon Resort 8/2/13 - 8/6/13, but could have easily stayed another 3 days. We had so much fun. We got the canyon tour package which includes 1/2 day of intermediate river rafting from Glenwood Springs Resort, zip lining and free passes to the hot spring pool. The river rafting was so much fun, but very relaxing.... More

This is an amazing rush. It is scary, if you take the time to look down, just stay focused and do it again, this time enjoying the view.

No lines, but a short trip. Wanted to stay at the resort too, but with a minimum of 4-noisy trains keeping me awake I passed.

Beautiful area. OK zipline for beginners. The fact that they militantly forbid personal photos from the deck area under the guise of safety is a highway robbery. The truth is they want to sell you their own photos for $15 per participant and they only take pictures from the lowest platform. Until they become more customer friendly SAVE YOUR MONEY!

This was the first time I had zip lined. The staff was incredible! They were so patient and sensitive to the fears of first timers. While I was a bit nervous, my fears were quelled by the second trip. The first time, zippers go across the Colorado River. Then, you navigate a wobbly bridge (scary!!), then you zip back across...
