Owner description: 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.

My husband and I went here on August 11, 2013. It was our first time zip-lining and we had a blast! The zips are breathtaking and so much fun. Our guides were great! I am afraid of heights and they were very patient with me. It was a lot of fun and we recommend Bear Mountain Ziplines if you are looking for something fun to do in Luray.

We were looking for something fun to do while staying at Skyland Resorts on the Skyline Dr. Just a half-hour drive off the mountain, we found Bear Mountain Ziplines (thanks to TripAdvisor) and had an absolute blast! As 50-something fun-seekers the great professionals who accompanied us and provided the instruction made us feel perfectly safe while giving us the adrenalin fix we were looking for. Starting first on a slow and low line gives you the confidence to tackle the next 6 lines, finishing with a long speed run back to the parking lot. Great job, BMZ! We'll be back with another group of friends.

My husband and I did the ziplines and wall climbing at Bear Mountain on August 10. The staff were knowledgable and great to work with as well as being a lot of fun. It was a great experience and we'll definitely do it again, next time we'll bring more people with us. We look forward to them adding more lines.

I'm a traveling nurse and wanted something fun to do. I decided to do the zip line then experience the caves. The zip line was quite the experience. It was really fun especially the very last line. Up to 35 mph, it was sweet. It's a great thing to do with a group or even on your own. You will meet people when you're there.

Granddaughter enjoyed it. This was something she and I wanted to do, but tour only had one slot left. She was a little worried, but did go it alone and had a blast. The staff was so friendly and nice and the dog was a pal to all. I wish we could have seen their faces taking off. The facility is easy to find and makes for a wonderful adventure. It only takes 1 1/2 hours and gives memories to last. The day we went was rainy, but not at the top of the mountain and was only misting when zipliners came down. It was an awesome experience for our granddaughter and are so glad we took her.
