Go ahead, get carried away...at Bear Mountain Ziplines in Luray, VA. Our Mama Bear Zipline tour includes 7 ziplines, for a total of 2700 ft of line racing through the forest canopy at up to 35 miles an hour. The last 1000 ft stretch brings you out over a meadow to land on the tower above our 3-story Bear Scramble climbing wall. Your trip starts with a rustic ride up a mountain road behind the tractor, where you’ll get comfortable with the zipline safety gear and procedures on the training zipline. Our professional guides have all been trained according to Association of Challenge Course (ACCT) requirements. We can confidently offer a safe as well as invigorating experience. We also offer a Bear Scramble climbing wall. Scramble up our 3-story climbing wall to ring the bell at the top. Our wall has multiple ascent paths and accommodates two climbers at a time, so you can come with a group and race your friends to the top! Access to the wall is available in half-hour increments, giving users many chances to improve their times, or try out a trickier path up. We use a state-of-the-art auto-belay system, allowing climbers to use the wall unassisted and rappel down under supervision by our certified guides. Please note that participants must weigh between 70 and 250 lbs and be at least 8 years of age to participate in the Mama Bear Zipline tour. The Bear Scramble can accommodate guests who weigh between 50 and 300 lbs.

We had a great time doing this course. It was great for all ages. We had kids from 8-12 and adults who had never done a ropes course before.. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. Can't wait to go back and try the Mama Bear Zip line course

The two young men that were helping us on our zip line adventure we're very knowledgeable and patient. I love coming down the mountain on 7 zip lines the last one went very fast was very exhilarating. Can't wait to... More

After a visit to Luray Caverns we decided to take a trip around town and we came across the Zipline! Well worth the money, hard working family business. We were on the last tour of the day and even enjoyed the company of the owners grand sons. They were a pleasure to be with in our group. We have been... More

Had a great time, really enjoyed it. Maybe 75 dollars is a little bit much for only 40 minutes of lines but we were the only two on our visit so perhaps if we had more in our group it might have been longer and felt like better value. It was a great experience though and the final Big Momma... More

The people there are really nice and make you feel comfortable with zip lining. The GoPro is a must, its so much fun going back and watching video. Seen plans of a papa bear in the future. I will be going back after the mama bear being so much fun.

(5/28/2015) We had a great time! The staff was patient and friendly and dedicated to making us feel comfortable with the ride. There was always someone at both ends of the zip line to make sure we were ready and help out. Our group consisted of two couples ranging in age from 61 to 67 yrs old. They even provided... More

I enjoyed doing the zipline tour at Bear Mountain. I was staying at Yogi Bear's campground next door so the location was incredibly convenient. The ziplines got progressively more intense and were all fun. I liked it a lot, but chose not to return this year as the cost seemed pretty high. $75 per person to participate. With a family...

Went zip lining this morning and had a fantastic time. Katie and Austin were perfect guides for our group of 7 ranging from age 9 to 47. It was great for everyone. 7 fun lines and a truck ride up to the first line. I highly recommend Bear Mountain Zip lining!
