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 just finished zip lining at Captain Zipline. This is likely the best zip line experience in the United States. Long, fast rides high above the ground over canyons. Don't miss this one! Randy and Corey are knowledgable and friendly guides. They provided a great overview of the area and it's history.

My first time ziplining and I'm so glad I chose to do it here. It was a rainy and then snowy day, but that didn't stop us. Our two guides were Pat and Cory and they were fantastic with the training and setting us up with the right equipment. The course was six zips in total and it's set up... More

We got some great pictures... More

I first visited Captain Zipline in 2007 and was impressed with the quality and character of their Zipline Tour. Captain Zipline's new additions make it one of the largest and most exciting tours in the country. As an adventure park builder, operator, and enthusiast who has visited more than 300 adventure parks worldwide, I can confidently say that Captain Zipline... More

My husband and I travelled to Salida with four international students from China. In looking for activities, we happened upon Captain Zipline and thought we would give it a go--we were glad that we did! Our guides, Randy and Pat, were very professional but made our tour very fun with their jokes and light-hearted spirit. I have been on several... More

Wow, what a thrill to entertain an international audience--and, we are sure glad that we put them at ease and they felt safe, that way they were destined to enjoy the tour. Thanks for visiting with us and try to get back here in the future to do the Canyon Aerial Course! More

Thanks for a fantastic experience for my family yesterday. Early in my career I was a Ropes Course Director for many years, so I have a critical eye of Ariel Parks. Your course is top-notch! Your staff were professional, knowledgeable and provided a wonderful opportunity for my kids (ages 10 and 12), and my husband and myself. We will definitely... More

Both the zipline and the aerial park at Captain Zipline are amazing. Either stands on it's own as a destination. I can't wait to return to try more challenges on the aerial course followed by a zipline over the canyon. It is a rush! The guides are all fun, pleasant, and safety conscious too.

We went to the Captains and there is a lot more going on than just zipline. It's an adventure park but it just costs too much!
