Branson has become just as famous for diverse attractions as it's always been for live shows, and the allure of several ziplines is bringing adventure fanatics here throughout the year! Almost every destination seems to have jumped on the zipline craze, but Branson's variety of zipline experiences make it stand out from the rest!
Branson Zipline, located just north of Branson on Highway 65, inside the Wolfe Creek Preserve, is an eco-adventure that features several different experiences: the 1.5 hour Flying Prospector Canopy Tour, the 2.5 hour Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour, the 3.5 hour Canopy Adventure Combo and, for the ultimate thrill, the Blue Steak Fast Line & Free Fall Xpress. Being one of the only themed zip line courses in the world, guests are ensured that their entertainment will be multi-faceted. From checking in at Wolfe Creek Station, to riding in a Pinzgauer Swiss Army Troop Carrier and interacting with knowledgeable, trained, & certified guides - every aspect of the experience will create memories for a lifetime. There are also non-zipping adventures like the Wolf Creek Photo Safari and Ol' Blue Gemstone Mining.
The Vigilante Extreme ZipRider at the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead stands high above the others; literally...it launches riders down from a height of 170 feet at speeds up to 50 mph! Located near the top of Inspiration Tower, the "Vigilante" doesn't require a lot of uncomfortable rigging or harness fitting, or a long list of riding instructions; nor does it require the rider to do anything other than enjoy the thrill of flying through the air, safely secured in a comfortable seat. Designed to automatically brake as it descends cable gradients between 5% and 40%, and to slow to a stop at the bottom, guests can just breeze through the fresh mountain air and enjoy the trip! You'll zoom down over a mile and a half, and then take a scenic shuttle ride through the homestead back up to Inspiration Tower. And because four riders launch side-by-side at one time, it's easy for a family to zip together. And make sure you save a little time to enjoy the stunning panoramic view from Inspiration Tower, it stands 230 feet high and, on clear days, you can see as far as 90 miles away! It's the ideal way to enjoy the beauty of the Ozarks' countryside.
Zip Line USA, located in Reeds Spring, 14 miles northwest of Branson, is a zip line designed for all ages. With no towers to climb, it is also the most user friendly canopy tour possible. 4x4 buses deliver participants right to the top of the course, and only 8 stairs to climb. Imagine soaring through the tree tops while gaining a bird's eye view of the beautiful Ozark Mountains of Missouri. Experienced guides will escort guests on an adventure, where all will delight in an adrenaline rush & learn about the local ecology from a bird's eye view. Offering the adventurous souls, a thrilling opportunity to soar through the treetops, high above the forest floor. The canopy tour involves traversing from one platform to another along a steel cable suspended up to 350 feet above the forest floor and spanning distances of 500-3200 feet.
