Ziplines range in length from 300'-1,000'. Includes four modest hikes over game trails and includes a dual 800' zipline which allows riders to race over the valley floor. The concluding zip, over 1,000 feet long, literally drops out of the sky. Open to the public daily from May through October with advance reservations. « less

Spent the afternoon with my two teenage daughters and had the time of our life. Guides where great!!! They are very safety conscientious and shared the history of the park. The nine lines where awesome. We will be returning to do it again.

I brought two twelve year-olds to this experience, without really telling them ahead of time that it was multiple zips, through a park setting. It was a great surprise for them AND a lot of fun for all of us. We were properly secured, slowed at the landings and given a superb history of the park, as well. It was... More

Our group of 3 had an awesome time! Our guides, Jon and Maria, were the best. Very informative and lots of fun. A definite "must do" again adventure.

This was our first experience zip lining and we had a great time! Our family of four took the two hour drive to spend a few hours getting some much needed time away for fun and relaxation and we definitely got it here. Since none of us had done this before, we were a bit nervous, but they helped us... More

A friend wanted to zip line and since this one is in our backyard we went for it. She had never ziplined before and I had only one other experience in Guatemala, so this was a very different kind of experience for both of us. Our guides Kelsey and Susan were great. They did an excellent job of explaining how... More

This was our second time at Sky Tours. This time, we brought our teenagers and my brother and his wife. Everyone enjoyed it. We had a beautiful day and a wonderful time. Our guides, Nate and Susan, were a lot of fun and did a great job. They give breaks along the tour and provide water, so no need to... More

We stayed a few days in Dubuque and decided to try out the Zipline course. I was quite nervous since I am afraid of heights, but I had so much fun. You start on a bunny type hill where you can just walk off and zip. Then you go thru 9 total zip-lines. After a few zips, you have to... More

While my wife and I were planning our trip to Dubuque, I came across these TripAdvisor reviews. I almost passed it over thinking, "Isn't it too flat in Dubuque to zip line?", but then I saw that every single review was 5 stars (or circles, I guess)! How could we pass that up? I booked over the phone with Glory.... More
