A zipline unlike all others-this is SEATED. Sit back and enjoy the ride-at speeds up to 50 MPH. Launch from Inspiration Tower-a beautiful sight, but the height will definitely get your adrenaline going before you even get to the platform. I researched several before deciding on which zip to ride, and this was also one of the most affordable, as... More

Loved it! It's very high up, so if you're scared of heights this isn't for you. It lasts about a minute but it so fun. Very smooth until the end when you slow down pretty quickly but you see it coming and it just swings you up like a swingset. Definitely recommend!

My husband and I decided to do this. It leaves from the 17th floor of the viewing tower at Shepard of the HIlls. You ride to the bottom of the hill. You are sitting in a sling type chair and dont have to worry about braking at the bottom, it does that automatically. We had a fun ride down, it... More

For $30 dollars you don't get much these days on value for attractions, but when you go up to the Vigilante Ziprider, you actually get a bonus ride. You travel 170 feet up in a glass elevator which offers amazing views of the beautiful surrounding lakes and mountains. You can walk around the top for a while or jump right... More

We decided to venture out to the ziprider mid-morning on a week day. They were training in new staff so we had to wait almost 30 minutes just to buy tickets. Once up in the tower, we had to wait another 10 minutes to get signed in. The staff was friendly, but due to the time of year, they seemed... More

This was a great zip line for the time constrained tourist. We had multiple other things to do but wanted to zip line and this was a perfect choice. The other agencies offer packages that last an hour or 2 some up to 4 hours. This took a total of maybe 45 minutes on a Saturday morning leaving us plenty... More

You sit in sort of a chair tied to the wire. You start at the top of the tower much higher than any other zipline and go for what seems forever, it was a lot of fun

This attraction was alot of fun and alternative for a cheaper route of zip lining. My family enjoyed it but unfortunately there's only one zip line. I highly recommend it, we did not leave disappointed.

Absolutely a thrill to fly off the tower and be headed down to bottom of zipline. Very safe and lightning speed made it fun for us two 70 year olds!! Made my day!!
