Overview

Go ahead, get carried away...at Bear Mountain Ziplines in Luray, VA. Our Mama Bear Zipline tour includes 7 ziplines, for a total of 2700 ft of line racing through the forest canopy at up to 35 miles an hour. The last 1000 ft stretch brings you out over a meadow to land on the tower above our 3-story Bear Scramble climbing wall. Your trip starts with a rustic ride up a mountain road behind the tractor, where you’ll get comfortable with the zipline safety gear and procedures on the training zipline. Our professional guides have all been trained according to Association of Challenge Course (ACCT) requirements. We can confidently offer a safe as well as invigorating experience. We also offer a Bear Scramble climbing wall. Scramble up our 3-story climbing wall to ring the bell at the top. Our wall has multiple ascent paths and accommodates two climbers at a time, so you can come with a group and race your friends to the top! Access to the wall is available in half-hour increments, giving users many chances to improve their times, or try out a trickier path up. We use a state-of-the-art auto-belay system, allowing climbers to use the wall unassisted and rappel down under supervision by our certified guides. Please note that participants must weigh between 70 and 250 lbs and be at least 8 years of age to participate in the Mama Bear Zipline tour. The Bear Scramble can accommodate guests who weigh between 50 and 300 lbs.

Very welcoming staff. We had one person for zip lining and although pleased they wished it was longer for the price, and a adult and 7 yr old on mama bear, it was scary at first but definitely a confidence builder and a great deal...More

Had a great time ziplining through the forest. If you've tried other ziplines, it might not seem as high because you're going over the forest floor, as opposed to over a valley, but it's fun to be close to the trees. Don't worry if you're...More

This was a very fun experience! I had never been zip-lining before. This course started out with a "practice run" with a short zip-line that is not very high off the ground. After successfully completing that zip-line, my nervous feelings went away, and I was...More

We had a group of 7 adults with only 4 of us with any previous zip line experience. Melissa and Tyler were super guides. They gave great instructions, were patient, and helpful. We recommend this as a fun activity to both experienced and inexperienced.

I made a reservation for 4 people for 1pm for the Baby Bear course. We drove out there, 90 min one-way, and was told that enough people didn't show up and we couldn't do the zip line. Also, our 5yo isn't 70lbs, so Baby Bear...More
