Captain Zipline is now an Adventure Park! Come and play in our canyon on our best-in-the-west Canyon Aerial Course ... 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.

We had a family reunion nearby and went in groups for the zipline and the course. The zipline was a little different from other lines we have done. You use your hand to guide your direction and speed so it's literally more "hands on" than the others. Everyone fully enjoyed both activities!

Amazing customer experience! Talk about going above and beyond! While on our way to meet up for our zipline adventure, we were in a car accident. Myself, my husband, my little boy, and our friend were T-boned and pushed into a telephone pole. We all went to the hospital to get checked out. When our friend's mom called the owner... More

I have used Captain Zipline twice and both times have been fantastic! We had a great time. The guides were very knowledgeable about the area's history and information. We felt very safe the entire time and enjoyed the awesome views. A herd of big horn sheep even visited the canyon while we were flying over them. It was a fabulous... More

My husband and I had a great time with Captain Zipline. Our guides, Josh & Rob, were awesome. They had a great sense of humor, educated us about the area as we went along and most importantly for first-time zipliners, instilled an absolute sense of confidence. (They also gave us a great recommendation for pizza at Amicas in Salida afterwards-highly... More

My husband and I visited on our honeymoon. We are both afraid of heights but with the lighthearted jokes and reassurance of Cory and Derek we had a blast! Fun for all!

My brother and I absolutely loved our trip with Captain Zip line. Not only was it educational, the views are indescribable, and the guides (Rob and Randy) were enthusiastic and friendly. I'd highly recommend visiting them and zipping across the canyon!

We headed to Colorado in late September. Ziplining was a birthday event for one of group of 5. What a great idea! We were in the mountains and didn't have cell service. Nonetheless, one quick call of "we will be there.." was all CZ needed. We showed up the next day and were ready to go. Preston and Rob were... More

There were 5 of us and none of us had ever been zip lining before. IT WAS AWESOME! We had several more people besides our family in our group and another group right behind us. The staff managed the numbers well. You arrive and have to fill out the cursory paperwork, then pile in a van to head to the... More

This is a great attraction to visit if you are in the Salida/Buena Vista/Canon City area. The ziplines are fun and the adventure park is a great time! We've done both for my daughter's birthday parties the last couple of years and all the teenagers really enjoy it. Appropriate for all ages and skill levels. Staff is really helpful and... More
