Ziplining: Experience the New West Adventure

>What started out as a working cattle ranch, Arizona Zipline Adventures (AZA) is now the site of Southern Arizona’s first and fastest Zipline EcoTour as well as an outdoor adventure hub located on the backside of Mt. Lemmon and southern Pinal County. AZA is nestled at the base of the Santa Catalina Mountains just north of Tucson and boasts incredible views of both the Catalina and Galiuro Mountain Ranges. The sentiment of the Old West and ranching history come alive as you enter the main archway.  You’re greeted by cattle that live on the open range in the area surrounding the property and step onto the main building’s patio that is decorated with an old-meets-new feel.

From families, friends, or corporate groups, you have the option to venture out for a few hours or a day of adventure on the zipline, the giant swing, team-building activities, and so much more.

The Zipline Ecotour gives each person the opportunity to zip across and learn about the Sonoran Desert flora and fauna while pushing the limits of their comfort zones. The tour includes a ride on all 5 ziplines ranging in length from 400-1,500 feet and lasts anywhere from 1-2 hours. The last and longest run is a dual line where two people zip down alongside one another and reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour!

The Team-building activities encourage groups to work through a series of challenging ground initiatives and low challenge course activities in a fun, dynamic setting. The Giant Swing and Leap of Faith group activities encourage teams to reach for new heights and step outside of their comfort zone as individuals (one at a time) while relying upon the support of the group.

Not to be missed, there are light hiking trails that stretch the length of the zipline course and a gold panning station for kids of all ages as well as adults.    

The uniquely crafted food from Peppersauce Kitchen and the onsite garden are what guarantee any visit to Arizona Zipline Adventures an unforgettable experience. The menu features a rotating selection of weekly specials along with the famous “Adventure Burger,” wood-fired pizzas and a Saturday morning buffet from 8:00 am – 11:00 am. Whether you decide to come out for the food, the views, or the activities, Arizona Zipline Adventures is a place that you want to have on your list of places to check out in 2018!
