A few friends and I went ziplining today to celebrate a birthday. Both of them had been before but it was my first time. I was petrified because I have a crazy fear of heights. Shannon and Lindsay were our guides. They were absolutely fantastic! They were very patient with me and all my hesitation and fear. They explained everything and answered every question. They didn’t rush me to let go or step off the platform. They were telling jokes and making us laugh, keeping the mood light while I gathered up enough courage to keep going. All in all, it was a terrific experience and I’d recommend it to any and all of my friends and family! I can’t wait to go back and take my husband since he’s never been! Thank you guys for being so wonderful!

What an excellent way to celebrate a birthday! Shannon and Lindsay are so easy-going that it's no surprise that they eased your anxiety of heights and you were able to enjoy the tour. They are both professional and fun!

We're excited that not only did you get over your fear of heights, but you plan on bringing your husband! Please consider spending a day with us next time. We offer great package deals which include a zip line tour, raft trip and a scrumptious lunch at our White Water Bar & Grill.

Thank you!

We had Matt and John as our instructors they were fantastic. There instructions were very clear on what to do and not do. They made the hiking through the forest fun. The classic run was 8 lines and amazing. This was my 3 rd time on the Royal Gorge zip line. I Have been to others and I feel that this on it the safest one.

If this is your third time on the Classic Course, then it's pretty apparent that you not only love zip lining, but also that you are quite ready for the Extreme Course!

The Classic Zip Line Course is perfect for most first-timers! However, if you've zip lined before, the Extreme Course will definitely give you the thrill that you are looking for! It is a more adventurous course with 11 lines that are longer and faster, reaching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour. The most talked about part of the Extreme Course is definitely the free fall off the 70 foot tower featuring the world's first Flight Line System. Once you step off the tower and free fall for 25 to 30 feet, the device catches you, gradually slows your fall and eases you to the ground. The thrill it gives you can make a roller coaster ride seem tame! The gorgeous views only accentuate the trip!

We look forward to your return visit and highly suggest the Extreme Tour next time! Please enquire about our return client discounts.

Thank you!

Awesome experience. Thousand foot canyons on each side, exceptionally unique views. The scenery is amazing and we learned something of rafting from Adam. Adam was a great guide, made the trip. Warm staff, great time. Will be back to see Adam.

Adam is patient, easy-going and a very skilled guide. We're so glad that you had a great experience rafting with him!

We're excited that you're coming back to visit us! You're definitely welcome to request Adam again. Don't forget that you can combine rafting, zip lining, and lunch at our on-site Whitewater Bar & Grill for a discounted price all throughout the summer!

What a great way to spend your anniversary! Although originally from Iowa, Scotty has spent many years in Cañon City so he is pretty knowledgeable about the area and it's history. We're really glad he was able to share his skills and knowledge with you.

We hope that you will come back to visit us again. Please consider spending a day with us next time doing one of our packages, which include the choice of a raft trip, zip line trip and a delicious lunch at our White Water Bar & Grill.

Thank you!
