1. How does Zip Adventures differ from the Adventures Unlimited high challenge course?
It is similar in that you are constantly clipped into a harness and secured to cables by pulleys and carabiners. You are about 40- 50 feet above the ground most of the time.
2. What are the physical challenges?
You need to be in average or above average physical condition. You will be walking a quarter of a mile over uneven terrain to get to the each of the start towers. You will need to be able to climb stairs and steep steps. Gravity brings you back to the start point via zip lines and sky bridges.
3. What makes Zip Adventures so unique?
Zip lines have been around for years. We have had 3 zip lines as a part of the challenge ropes course for years. This adventure is unique because it is a series of zip lines, observation platforms and sky bridges that allow you an experience like the flight of a bird, get a bird’s eye view of the forest and streams and learn about the four eco-systems that surround the Coldwater Creek area. We will also show you several historic sites and talk about the geology of the creeks and rivers.
4. What are the dress requirements?
We recommend you wear comfortable outdoor clothing. We require you to have closed toe shoes, and that you tie hair up and away from the neck no hanging or dangling jewelry and be ready for the experience of a life time!
5. How many people will be in flight group?
We limit the number to 8 participants with 2 guides. This ensures more hands on safety inspections, one on one interpretation and your quality experience.
6. What are the weight limits?
Due to the fact that gravity moves you from platform to platform, the weight range is 70-250 lbs. Someone lighter then 70 lbs will not have the momentum to make the zips and a large person would have trouble stopping at the end of each flight.
7. What are the age limits?
Due to the strength required to brake with your hands and to pull yourself in if you end up short on any flight the recommended age is 8 year and up. This activity is only restricted for seniors as to their physical condition. Many seniors love this adventure.
8. How much time should we allow for the Zip Adventures? (based on a group of 8)
Taste of the Tours 3hrs
Forest Flight: 3 hrs
Soaring stream 2 hrs
The Ultimate Zip Adventure 5 hours
9. When should we plan to arrive for our adventure?

10. What if we change our minds about going on our adventure?

Please be sure you that everyone in your group is mentally and physically able to participate in Zip Adventures BEFORE you pay.
