“Zip lining tour- a blast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

What a fantastic way to spend a few hours. They have 6 lines through trees, over cliffs and over a creek. The tour guides (Bryan and Greg) were so great and made the day even more fun. I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Colorado- it was so much fun!

“MUST do the Zipline Trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2012

This was our first time ziplining so we were a little nervous. The guides were knowledgeable and made you feel at ease. All of the equipment looked brand new which made me feel even safer. We took a short van ride to the top of the mountain and then took 6 different zips to get to the bottom. Each zip was different and the guides would explain how to approach each one - break, don't break, do tricks, etc. The guides made it fun and there were a lot of laughs. We would definitively do this trip again. I did carry my camera with me and just kept it wrapped abound my wrist and in my coat. Others did take their phones for pictures too. They won't recommend it, but it was worth the risk - we got a lot of great pics.

“Zipline trip safe and fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

Our family visited Idaho Springs to do zip lining. The check-in process was easy and the building was very clean, including the restrooms. This zip line experience is for everybody. A short ride to the top of the hill in AVA's shuttle van and then a very short walk makes it easy for anybody to participate. The guides were great and their instructions were very easy to understand. With their triple safety protection system, there was no fear of the lines failing.

“Ziplining in the Rockies!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012

We really enjoyed the new zipline course at AVA. Jeff and Brian were fantastic guides - very capable, personable and fun. And we appreciated that we were given more leeway and freedom as we went through the course, which was perfect for our 18 year old son. Great experience!
