Captain Zipline is now an Adventure Park! Come and play in our canyon on our best-in-the-west Canyon Aerial Course ... Fly across our ziplines while on the Lost Canyon Zipline Tour ... Or climb the cliffs while attached to a safety tether on our Via Ferrata Courses! Captain Zipline has created an amazing "jungle gym" in the canyon--a challenge course with elements such as swinging bridges, tightropes, cargo nets, balance beams, a trapeze, etc. The tour has over 100 elements with courses that are rated like those of the ski resorts--from entry level to black diamond! Guests can now book the Canyon Aerial Course and Zipline tours online. We also have a new Visitor's Center, located only about 1 mile from the Park. This Center is our NEW Meeting Place for ALL TOURS: 1500 County Road 45, Salida, CO 81201.

An adventure from start to finish! The aerial park was so much fun! All of the guides were great,but Derek stole the show. He made sure everyone was safe and had a great time working through the course. I highly recommend Captain Zipline and will be returning in the future!

Being in a strange area and unfamiliar with the layout of the complex I admittedly made a mistake and drove through some dead grass in the front of the business. For that I will apologize 1000 times, as soon as my friends and I saw the correct entrance behind a large truck we knew we were wrong. Monty the owner... More

We always appreciate it when customers are in a hurry to get here and are on time! This group was both. Unfortunately, when they came driving right thru our front yard, they almost ran over a person! They had to weave through 2 vehicles that were parked along the building and make a sharp S-turn to get into the parking... More

We had the most amazing time with my family from out of town! 65 and sunny and our guides Preston and Derek had us laughing and dancing and singing the whole time. My nieces from Ohio and my mom have never experienced anything like that! It was loved by all of us and we will all remember the experience forever.... More

This was an impromptu visit to Captain Ziplines, and it was fantastic! The whole family did the aerial course. It was fun, challenging, and so exciting. Our kids were pretty fearless before, and now they know that they can do anything if they put their minds to it. And even though the course is completely amazing, the team tops it... More

We went with another family as part of our spring break trip. We had a great time! Derek and Monty were great guides. The friendly banter between them was comical. They pointed out interesting sights on the short hikes between lines and were very encouraging to everyone. Safety was a top priority to them, but they even made that fun.... More

It's a real honor to leave the 500th review for Captain Zipline (and I'm told I get a free koozie out of the deal), so I'll try to do this justice. We did the classic zipline tour and were really pleased. The guides definitely took their time to make sure all participants were well-prepped to go on the course, but... More

We had a great time at Captain Zipline! Our guides were knowledgable and entertaining! Each zipline gets faster as you progress through the park. The guides taught us about our surroundings on the short hikes between lines. Keep your eyes open for Bighorn sheep! Breathtaking views! I will do it again in an instant! Can't wait to return during the... More

We went in November with 2 families (adults and kids from 9-16 year old). We did the ropes courses, but not the zippiness. Our guide, Derek, was awesome. He was very encouraging, patient, and helpful with everyone in our group. He was also very concerned about our safety, but at the same time, made it really fun for all. I... More
