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.

This is a bit of a delayed review (OK long delayed), but my wife and I loved this place. It was our first time trying ziplining and unlike the South Park episode, it was a blast. Captain Zipline has a cool facility with a ton of great ziplines all within easy walking distance from each other. The view is great... More

Despite the fact that is was Christmas Derek and Josh took the time out of their day to accomadate us with an amazing experience. Both very enthusiastic and energetic. Not to mention the views were spectacular at all the zip lines definitely coming back to this beautiful place to try other activities. "Random word on 3...123... velacaraptor!!!"

We had a great time over the weekend zippin' in Salida. Not to mention, this was on a Sunday and the guys made it work for us to come. Usually they take on larger trips, but our party of 2 was just as good. We had a blast zippin' and learning from the 2 guides that took us out. They... More

Last summer my family of three and family friends did the zipline course. It was a great time!! Our guides were Rob and Derek and they were great. Last week we were back during a fall break from school and decided to do the Aerial Obstacle Course. It was so much fun!!! This course challenges you physically while also encouraging... More

My wife found Captain Zipline while looking for an activity to do while our kids were staying with family. I'm glad she did; it was a lot of fun. They offer two different activities, a zipline course, and an aerial park. We opted for the latter, which is a very involved high ropes course. Our guide was Josh. He was... More

This was such a great experience for our family! Our guides, Josh and Derek, are experienced and added to the fun. Another great add to the exhilarating and safety-focused ziplining was the simple beauty of the canyon. We will definitely be back again when our kids are big enough to navigate the aerial course. My daughter said it best, "This... More

Went out with a small group including 2 young children. Tour guides Josh and Derrick were relaxed and funny and helped everyone feel safe. We had a wonderful morning and look forward to going back to try the aerial adventure course!!! The two kids on the tour seemed to really enjoy themselves too so if you are considering bringing the... More

I am not in the best of shape and thus was not sure I would be able to handle the course. My husband, son and my BFF and I went on the course guided by Derek - an able young man, very nice and funny and enthusiastic! My friend and I were able to get through the yellows and greens,... More

Fantastic first time experiences made us wish we'd have stayed all day. It was really easy to get started and to have fun because of the coaching from Doug and Josh. Great guides. The aerial course looks like fun too - as we sailed overhead.
