FINS COURSE ZIPLINE There is no better way to experience the Front Range than by zipline. Come experience one of the top zipline courses in the world! The Fins Course is our more extreme option with added exposure, steep drops, and high altitude zip lining. For a milder option, check out our Woods Course. If you want to experience both courses, check out the Combo Course! 5 ziplines, 250 to 1800 ft long Heights of 500 ft 2 rope bridges 180 ft assisted rappel The tour starts much like the Woods Course with two warm up zips before getting into the cliff condition style zips that gradually get longer and longer. The third zip offers an excellent view of the Seven Falls Canyon and Colorado Springs as you land near the rock “fins”. These fin like formations are the inspiration for the name of this course! From the cliff side, you will walk over a 200 foot rope bridge to the eastern fin. From there, you can see just how large the Broadmoor and Colorado Springs are. After taking in the views and walking the second bridge, you will find yourself zipping 1,160 feet across the canyon to the south side of Mt. Cutler! Your heartbeat begins to rise as you cross over the canyon road 509 feet below before landing on the cliff side. As you catch your breath and look up and down the Seven Falls canyon, your guides will begin to clip you into the final zip. Prepare to zip 1,800 feet up the canyon! Don’t forget to look down at the park visitors below! If the fifth zip wasn’t enough, we have added a unique ending to the Fins course. You will end the tour with a 180 foot assisted rappel to the canyon floor. Those visiting Seven Falls will watch in amazement as you rappel off the ridge. To finish an exciting couple hours in the mountains, you will get to enjoy the Seven Falls park and restaurant 1858 at your leisure. When you are finished, make your way to the entrance of the park to catch a shuttle back to the Broadmoor.
WOODS COURSE ZIPLINE Experience the thrill of soaring through the ponderosa pine forests and high above Midnight Falls. The Woods Course, our less extreme option, includes 5 ziplines ranging from 250 to 1500 feet. You will reach heights of 150 feet and speeds of 45 miles an hour. For a more adrenaline inducing course, check out the Fins Course! If you want to experience all of our ziplines, check out our Combo Course! 5 ziplines, 250 to 1500 ft long Heights of 150 ft Speeds of 45 mph Soar over a waterfall Our awesome guides will take your group through a brief lesson on braking and other zip line techniques before actually entering the course itself. All guests will get to practice their skills in ground school. The first two zips are considered “warm up” lines ranging from 250 to 310 feet long. You will began to get a feel for the zipping techniques as you see the trees go rushing past. After the second zip, there will be a short walk to the third line where the terrain opens up into a perfect setting looking up and down the canyon. Standing on top of the granite rock formation, you can revel in the gorgeous scenery before taking your first airy 467-foot ride over the creek 150 feet below. As you slow down for the landing, you will notice a natural arch to their left just before touching down. As the excitement begins to spread, your guides will lead your group back across the canyon, touching down above Midnight Falls. Here, you will get a birds’ eye view of the area behind the falls as they stand on one of the highest points in the Seven Falls area. You will finish the Woods Course by zipping 1,500 feet above the hiking trails below to the final platform. After degearing, you will say goodbye to your guides! You are free to explore the park at your leisure. But, your guides will give you instructions on how to make your way to the entrance of the park and back to the Broadmoor. You will have a short hike and walk down the 224 steps in front of the Seven Falls. To finish an exciting couple hours in the mountains, you will get to enjoy the Seven Falls park and restaurant 1858 at your leisure. When you are finished, make your way to the entrance of the park to catch a shuttle back to the Broadmoor.
