Owner description: EXPERIENCE 6 THRILLING ZIP LINES AT THE TOP OF THE WORLD. All zips have double cables for the safest zipping. "Self-braking" is not required; our "catch brakes" will bring you to a safe and comfortable landing. TOP OF THE ROCKIES zip line is located on Highway 91 just 14 miles south of Copper Mountain from Exit 195 on Interstate 70. Our PRIVATE 2500 acre property high on the Continental Divide has 40 old gold mining claims, pine and aspen forests, vast canyons and bubbling streams. Ride a 6-1/2 ton Monster Truck up to the first zip line deck at 11,200 feet,then experience SIX separate zip lines with long lines up to 850 feet. All zip decks are flat on the ground for easy access. Zip line areas are connected by scenic, easy walking, down-hill trails. Fly side-by-side on four twin lines and 1 single, then soar side-by-side-by-side from the rocky cliffs on the BIG NUGGET ZIP, a Triple Header. Land on our 100' tall Sky Tower with majestic views of Mount Elbert & Mount Massive, two of the tallest mountains in North America. At least two professional zip line guides accompany every tour group. We are the closest zip line company to Summit County, only minutes away from Copper, Breckenridge, Keystone, Dillon and Vail, approximately one and a half hours from the metro Denver area. Aspen is approx. 1 hour away over Independence Pass in summer months. It's always cool and comfortable year round in this high alpine area. Ask about our Rails & Zip line Combo with lunch. We are the only zip line company in the world to fly over a moving train. Winter Snow Zipping tours include a snow cat/zip line tour or snowmobile/zip lining combos.

“You don't want to miss this!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We had a blast! The visit begins with a ride on an ATV to the top of an 11K' mountain, and from there, we spent the next 2 hours on a zip line tour (5 lines). Lines 3 & 5 were the most fun! The guides were great. The views were amazing. Just a short 30 minute drive from Silverthorne. Will go again...and again! Don't miss it!

“Great Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Our group of four, ages 67 to 70, were very impressed. This was a "first ever" experience for all of us and we loved it! Our guides, Sean and Oz, were extremely safety conscious, very engaging and put everyone at ease. We would highly recommend Top of the Rockies. What an experience!

“So much fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Don't be turned off by the roadside appearance of this enterprise, the experience is a blast! The guides and safety are excellent and worth the price. The trip up to the first platform is really fun in an ATV. Then the five zip lines, one of which you can go off backwards which was really a rush. They are in the process of building a 6th platform, hence the unfinished look, so I am planning a return trip!

“Wow, what a rush!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Awesome experience for hubby and my 30th anniversary! The staff were so much fun! Kudos to Carlos, Mox and Darryl who were just a blast! Felt very safe and attended to. Even stopped by for a quick mine shaft detour on the way down. 5 platforms, less than 10 steps up each, and loads of fun. Saved some bucks mentioning the coupon. Highly recommend to all! The views while zip lining as well as the drive up were outstanding!

“Great guides but overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

Kids wanted to go zip lining on our Leadville vacation so we headed up Fremont pass before checking prices. Bottom line - we paid $400 for a family of 4 for about 1 hour and 20 minutes of zip lining. Guides and safety were top notch, but we were told on the phone it was about 2 hours to do all the zip lines, and I just didn't feel it was a good value for the money.
