Ziplines Tours« All Activities
Fly Through The Woods!
Sunday River offers two zipline adventures: Zipline Tours, which take small groups through the woods between ski trails on a six-zipline course, and our Twin Zips, which offer side-by-side zipline action right at the base of the slopes.
Six-Zipline Course plus a Twin Zip Finale!
The Sunday River Zipline Tour features a series of six lines ranging from 100 to 300 feet in length with a final "zip" down the resort's 750-foot Twin Zip. Its wooded location takes you through the trees and over a ravine and stream bed, at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. Accessed via the South Ridge Express chairlift, you'll walk over to the wooded course entrance before making your way down to the Twin Zip to finish your tour just outside the South Ridge Lodge. It's an all thrills, no skills activity for all ages! (Twin Zips are also available without taking the full tour.)
Schedule: Zipline Tours run at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m., and 2 p.m., Thursdays through Sundays starting June 26 through Labor Day (September 1, 2014), then Fridays through Sundays, September 5 through Columbus Day Weekend (October 13, 2014). Additional tours can be scheduled for private groups. *Please note Zipline Tours will not be available on Saturday, July 26 due to the Tough Mountian Challenge event.
Group Tour Schedule & Reservations: Private and additional tours are available for groups of 8-12 people. Please call in advance to secure a tour: 800-543-2754 or see below for more information.
Duration: Tours take approximately 2 hours and depart from the South Ridge Lodge. After completing the course, a 10-minute walk brings you to the final run on the 750-foot Twin Zip.
Pricing: $59 for adults, $49 for juniors
Ages: Open to all ages. Height and weight restrictions apply.
Safety is our top priority. Our guides fit you with state-of-the-art equipment and safety information is reviewed prior to each zipline tour. Zipline guides have trained extensively in the proper techniques and procedures of safety. Each piece of equipment and lines are inspected daily. Our guides will ensure your safety while you have fun! Each guest can fly relaxed, knowing that they are connected with two attachment points on each zipline. Our ziplines are designed to use a gravity braking system complemented by an arrester system used by our guides. This means it's hands free and worry free fun for your enjoyment!
