Captain Zipline is now an Adventure Park! Come and play in our canyon on our best-in-the-west Canyon Aerial Course ... Fly across our ziplines while on the Lost Canyon Zipline Tour ... Or climb the cliffs while attached to a safety tether on our Via Ferrata Courses! Captain Zipline has created an amazing "jungle gym" in the canyon--a challenge course with elements such as swinging bridges, tightropes, cargo nets, balance beams, a trapeze, etc. The tour has over 100 elements with courses that are rated like those of the ski resorts--from entry level to black diamond! Guests can now book the Canyon Aerial Course and Zipline tours online. We also have a new Visitor's Center, located only about 1 mile from the Park. This Center is our NEW Meeting Place for ALL TOURS: 1500 County Road 45, Salida, CO 81201.

Great time with Megan. Showed us a great time. Megan was great with the kids and there were some kids under 10 that they were connected with. Super safe and thrilling course - highly recommend. The town was cute and had a nice dinner after

We love it when our guests have an epic adventure with us, then go into Salida for dinner at one of our best restaurants...and we shout them a free drink at Amicas Pizza and Microbrewery with their entree! It is all about a world-class family experience with us. Now, can we suggest a soak in the hot springs? We have... More

Clare and Meagan made for a safe, fun, and exciting day zipping through a canyon on the outskirts of Salida. We were impressed how seriously they trained and guided us with utmost safety in mind. Our group of about 12 was right-sized. We went across 6 zip lines. They were each different from each other in small ways. We basically... More

For the experience ziplining, this is a five star review. We all loved it. Megan and Chase were great. The setting of the zipline was more than scenic, and the prep and support was top notch. The one star issue we had was the crazy pimping of other businesses. This began while trying to make reservations over the phone. Hubs... More

So glad your family had a great zipline experience! We want our guests to have a completely awesome experience in Salida, and having lived here for over 4 decades, we think we know the best places to eat, shop and soak in the hot springs. We will take this review to heart and try to let our visitors find the... More

We will start responding to all these great reviews just to let all the families how much we appreciate your confidence in us. Hurry up and visit as our best lady guides have to go back to college in a week or two! Just for the record, our "girl guides" make the best employees and our guests will agree! We... More

Eric & Claire were great, made us feel very safe with clear instructions on safety practices but also encouraged us to have fun. If we'd had time on our trip we'd have made a 2nd trip. Not your average zip. You actually zip 6 different lines with increasing speeds as you progress. Will try the adventure park next time.

Fun while feeling safe! What else is there? I guess the guides shared some fascinating stories of the old miner stories and complex geological features. There is never enough time during vacation. Since nobody knows what day it is while on vacation, why not just do it again? We will keep the lights on and cables tuned for your return... More

Made reservation for 3 adults and two kids. Showed up at 4:00 as we were told, and no one was there. Called Monty, who we made reservation with and he claimed "he had gone to town and would drive back ASAP". Then last tour of day rolls in and tour guides ask us "what are you doing here"? Clearly no... More

Unhappy from the start! Check-in was at 4PM, departure at 4:30. We left at 4:29PM. We were surprised when this lady began telling US which guides she wanted on her trip! One was too old, one was too young...who's running this tour, us or her? After being criticized throughout the entire check in process, the "approved" guides left with this... More

Monty and his crew are fantastic! Our family of 4 did both the Zipline and the Aerial course. With 2 kids (13 &11) I was a bit apprehensive about safety, but was very comfortable with this company. Safty is their top priority. Megan and Claire led our group for The Zipline - the were extremely well trained on guiding our... More

We had fun with this crew! The "girl guides" showed their skill at keeping everyone safe and entertained while they expend some adrenaline over the canyon. We will await your return for the aerial course adventure as we know your family will be back! Thank you for visiting. More

David and Meagan were a lot of fun and knowledgable and we had a great time. Mom checked another item off her bucket list. Would recommend Captain Zipline again. Paired with our rafting trip with American Adventures, it was an amazing day.

David and Reya were both very fun, professional, and safety oriented. I really enjoyed my experience zip lining with them. I expected the views to be better (wider and longer) but the guides made up for it.
