Ozark Mountain Ziplines

February 28th, 2014 by babiesblog

Ozark Mountain Ziplines is located at 208 W. Van Buren St., Eureka Springs, Arkansas (Just across from the Best Western @ Myrtie Mae’s).

Experience the exhilarating thrill of a Zip Line Canopy Tour right in the heart of the beautiful, pristine Ozark Mountains at Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Soar through the air from up to 300+ feet high with cable lengths up to 2400 feet long over vast gorgeous, beautiful Ozark hardwood trees and limestone cliffs.

The Zip Line is designed to offer the highest degree of safety while providing large or small groups, families, and private parties an exhilarating outdoor fun and safe adventure. Their trained staff will operate and deliver 2 hours of fun per tour for any persons 3 years of age or older. They offer their services to single parties, couples or groups of any kind.

From a structural standpoint, the tree top canopy tour is a system of cables and platforms, wherein the participant “zips” through the treetops while connected to a secure cable harness and a safety strap. Wooden platforms suspended by cables serve as a landing base in each tree that you “zip” to and from on some cables and for others they launch from limestone cliffs with on-ground platforms. No wooden towers here! All natural and minimal hiking on clear-cut trails, finishing up at the bottom of the gorge where a heated or air-conditioned bus is waiting ready with beverages and smiling faces to take you back to the welcome center just minutes away.

About Ozark Mountain Ziplines:

Zip Line Canopy Tours first originated in Costa Rica as a way for people to experience the animal and plant life that are unique to the canopy of a rainforest. Ozark Mountain Zip Line’s hardwood forest canopy tour has its own bird, plant, and animal life, which their guided tour is designed to introduce you to as you glide along from tree to tree!

Their experience derives from 20 years of building & operating Zip Lines all over the world from as far south as Costa Rica, Ecuador, and all over the Continental United States and Canada. Their equipment and cables are inspected regularly as they always adhere to the highest of safety standards.
