Fly across our ziplines while on the Lost Canyon Zipline Tour ... Or climb the cliffs while attached to a safety tether on our Via Ferrata Courses! Captain Zipline has created an amazing "jungle gym" in the canyon--a challenge course with elements such as swinging bridges, tightropes, cargo nets, balance beams, a trapeze, etc. The tour has over 100 elements with courses that are rated like those of the ski resorts--from entry level to black diamond! Guests can now book the Canyon Aerial Course and Zipline tours online. We also have a new Visitor's Center, located only about 1 mile from the Park. This Center is our NEW Meeting Place for ALL TOURS: 1500 County Road 45, Salida, CO 81201. « less

We visited the Salida area last Labor Day weekend and were pleasantly surprised. We actually first were in Canon City and doing the white water raft trip that partners with Captain Zipline. Our son is a cadet at USAFA and we wanted to do something fun while visiting. We were not disappointed. Even I felt safe and prepared. You get... More

We had a very good experience! There are 6 major zip line and a practice zip line (Total=7). We felt very safe and prepared for the activity. The guides (Preston and Rob) were very cool, helpful, and fun. We recommend Captain Zipline for your trip!

We've been ziplining before, but Captain Ziplines Aerial Park was like nothing we've EVER experienced and we've been traveling the world for the past year! Imagine playing Indiana Jones on a jungle gym on steroids in the midst of a massive canyon with breathtaking views. It was so much fun and I would recommend for anyone - kids, families, couples,...

Captain Zipline's new aerial park is a blast. Had to reschedule our original reservation due to an injury in our party and faced many issues, but had a lot of fun once we arrived and figured out all the details. Our guide Josh was very friendly and gave us a lot of background on the construction of the park and... More

I am not a heights person -- never have been, never will be....but this trip was great! Although I was sweating before we started, our guides, Randy and Monty, made me feel comfortable the entire time. I loved Randy's style -- very funny and relaxed and Monty's professionalism. I thoroughly enjoyed myself (oh yeah, so did the rest of my... More

My husband and I (age 65-66) did the Captain Zipline tour on August 20, 2014. We were nervous because of our ages and the fact that we hadn't done a zipline before. We are in fairly good shape for our ages. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Josh. The check in process was very easy and we waited for all... More

My boyfriend and I took the zipline tour, and it was great. Our guides (Josh and Preston) were a ton of fun (they obviously enjoy working together), but also made us feel very safe. They gave very clear training at the beginning and tips throughout the tour ("keep your legs up!"), and also took special requests ("give me a push!,"... More

You can tell it's a zip line course because it is.... (You will get it if you've been or if you go). Plenty of action for the entire family. The kids are 8 and 11 and they were able to do it all. This may be a little more advanced than some. You wear gloves and can steer and slow... More

This past summer we wanted to do something special for our granddaughter and grandson for their 13th birthdays, so in July decided to take them on Captain Zipline as part of our mountain trip. It was something none of us had done before and cannot imagine our experience being any better!! We thoroughly enjoyed the three young men who were... More

Our family is very active when we vacation, and we love challenges! This attraction does not disappoint. We bought the zipline and rope challenge package for the day. Allow about 5 hours for both. We have done a very similar rope challenge course in Keystone, South Dakota last year. The company used the same providers for this course. The ziplining... More
