Our ziplining tours attract thousands of visitors yearly, and boast some of the most incredible views in the area.Here are a few things visitors should know before embarking on one of our Colorado Springs ziplining adventures.
Be aware of altitude
Colorado ziplining is an amazing experience, but altitude sickness can easily put a damper on your adventure if you’re not properly prepared. Symptoms like headache, tiredness and shortness of breath are no fun to deal with when you’re on a ziplining excursion, so you’ll want to make sure you are well hydrated, well rested, and are performing activities at your own pace. If you are experiencing severe altitude sickness when you arrive, it may be best to reschedule your time with us for your owns safety, as we want you to enjoy your experience to the fullest!
Dress for the occasion
Comfort is key during a ziplining adventure and appropriate attire is a must. Opt for clothing that’s easy to move around in, and do consider the weather when deciding on layers. Typically, you can’t go wrong with long shorts or leggings paired with a T-shirt or tank top for summer, but you will want to bundle up with a jacket or sweater during chilly temperatures. Comfortable, closed-toe shoes that are sure to stay on as you fly through the sky are also important, and don’t forget to pay attention to your hair if you are sporting long locks, as your guide may ask you to wear it tied back for your safety and so not to obstruct your view.
Leave behind personal belongings
Keeping personal items on you while ziplining is not advised. Any items that fall or get lost as you navigate the course are unlikely to be recovered from down below. Instead of carrying things like your smartphone and keys in your pockets, consider handing off your belongings to someone in your group, or wear a secure fanny pack to take with you as you zip down the line.
Ziplining is guaranteed to get your heart pumping, but there are also plenty of other outdoor activities to enjoy when you’re visiting Colorado Springs. Some of these include rock climbing, mountain biking, and even paintball. Broadmoor Outfitters ziplining participants also receive free admission to stunning Seven Falls, so be sure to pencil this into your itinerary for the day. Afterwards, relax and reflect on your awesome day when you grab a bite at one of several nearby restaurants.
