Zip, Zip Away
AVA's Idaho Springs zip line tour offers 6 exciting zips through the beautiful Clear Creek Valley, plus 5 additional features such as our Jungle Bridge, 50-foot cliffside free fall, Surf Zip, 600-foot dual race line, & Bridge of Doom. The course is weaved into our forested, 9-acre private property with stunning mountain views.
You begin your day flying from ridge to ridge over a forest of Douglas Fir and Ponderosa Pines. Then start descending into the forest flying from tree to tree at speeds up to 30 miles mph as you make your way down the mountain
Finish off with an exciting 450 foot line running directly over Chicago Creek and landing in the backyard of our office. Our course follows the contours of the mountain providing a truly unique experience.
Between rafting and zip lining enjoy time for a picnic on our deck or head into town (2 min drive, 5 min walk) to grab a bite before embarking on the second half of your adventure.
