Adventures Out West Colorado Zip Line Tour
Our two hour zip line tour is the perfect introduction to zip lining in Colorado, and is one way to build an adventure into any family trip. The tour starts at Adventures Out West’s zip line meeting area outside of Manitou Springs – just a few minutes from Colorado Springs. The setting offers stunning views of the mountains leading up to Pikes Peak. If you’re going to zip line Colorado you may as do it where the views are most spectacular, and we’re sure you’ll agree!
First you’ll board AOW jeeps that take you on a short 4 wheel drive road to the location of the course. The 5 zip line course has cables between 225 feet to over 650 feet long, and is perched along the edge of canyon walls up to 90 feet above the rocks below – it’s full of enough adventure for the whole family. The tour is usually 5 cables long, but on some tours there’s enough time to zip the last two cables twice, making it a 7 zip tour. After your tour you’ll take the return 4 X 4 ride back to your vehicle. Your Colorado zip line tour will take about 2 hours from start to finish including the jeep rides.

Zip lining in Colorado is a true adventure with some physical demands, but realize that this is still a family-friendly experience. The passive braking system is a favorite of nervous parents – the guides have the ability to slow down your little adventurers or a nervous guest prior to landing to maintain control.

Let us know in advance if you will be travelling with minors and need to have the parent or legal guardian complete the liability release form in advance of your arrival.
