“Across the river”
Reviewed 25 September 2012

A very neat zip line experience. A long zip line across the river and then back. It is fast and long.

“So Much Fun.”
Reviewed 8 September 2012

Now this is what I call fun. zipline across the Colorado River. We paid for doing it twice. It was so much fun I wish it was longer. Wish you could just start out and follow the river down and around. Would do it again. At 56yrs old This was on my bucket list and loved it.

“Alot of fun for adventurous families”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

Not cheap, but definitely fun. The staff seemed to take safety very seriously which we appreciated. The zipline was great and the crossing the suspension bridge was scary but we finished with big smiles. The rafting was great fun in the beginning, but after an hour of drifting down river we were ready to be done. They don't allow you to take your own photos while ziplinging so be prepared to pay for photographs if you want them. Overall a great experiance that we would love to do again.

“A fun day of challenge for the kids (and Mom and Dad!)”
Reviewed 29 July 2012

Glenwood Canyon Resort - stunning location. They have a challenge course right by the Colorado River. The staff are WONDERFUL! Very friendly, helpful. They entertained the kids (older teens) throughout the course. You climb, walk over high places on small wires, balancing, etc. You zip over the Colorado River and back. We did the optional (extra fee) Leap of Faith - for the sheer fear factor of jumping out into space a grabbing a bar (and/or missing it!), it was worth it. It was a fun day!

“Great place for first ziplining experience”
Reviewed 23 July 2012

We had never done this before and I think this is a good one to start with because it's not too high or too long. Staff was knowledgeable and made you feel at ease. Give it a try!
