Branson is adding a new attraction to its entertainment scene and it promises to take guests to new heights. The Branson Zipline attraction is set to open in May 2010 and is promising Branson visitors an entirely new outdoor adventure.
This unique attraction will offer a Zipline Canopy Tour, which will last approximately 2.5 hours and will cover over one mile. Along the guided tour (all guides for all tours will be certified by the Association for Challenge Course Technology), guests will experience seven ziplines as well as a variety of bridges and walkways that will help highlight the unique ecology of the area at a leisurely pace. Guides will point out the most interesting ecological, topographical and historical features of the Ozark Mountains along the way.
Branson Zipline, one of many Branson MO attractions, will also offer a Fastline Experience that is geared towards Thrillseekers. It will involve a zipline in which guests soar down to the bottom tower, where they will remain 100 feet in the air. At that point, they will get to chose whether they would like to reach the ground using several short zip lines or one big jump. If they choose the big jump, Branson Zipline officials say the feeling of the jump is similar to bungee jumping, without the recoil effect.
The Branson Zipline will appeal to a broad group of people and officials have designed it so that a range of people can enjoy the tours it offers. It will require minimal physical exertion and is designed for those of all ages. There are a few steps and some walking involved. But, if you are capable of walking at the mall, you will be able to enjoy this tour. The weight guidelines for zipline use are 70 – 275 pounds. Tours will run rain or shine, snow or sleet. Lightning, though, will postpone tours.
Prices range from $39.99 – $179.99, depending on the activity and tour visitors select. The 2.5 hour Zipline Canopy Tour will be $99.99.
The Branson Zipline attraction is scheduled to open the first week of May, 2010. It is located seven miles north of Branson, on Hwy. 65, near the Hwy 176 intersection.
