WHAT IS A ZIPLINE CANOPY TOUR?
Guided zipline canopy tours originated in Costa Rica as a way for people to experience the flora and fauna that is unique to the dense leafy canopy of a rain forest. The Ozark Mountain hardwood forest canopy has its own bird, plant, and animal life, which our guided tour is designed to introduce you to as you glide along from tree to tree!
From a structural standpoint, a canopy tour is a system of cables and platforms, wherein the participant "glides" or "zips" through the treetops while connected to the cable via a harness. A large wooden platform serves as a landing base in each tree that you "zip to." Our canopy tour facility was built in accordance with Association of Challenge Course Technology recommended guidelines.
