WOLCOTT, Colorado – Zip Adventures of Vail has announced that it has been named to the Top 10 zip lines lists for both Travel + Leisure Magazine and the Travel Channel. Ranked No. 9 of 15 zip lines worldwide on Travel + Leisure’s online cover story on April 6 and to TravelChannel.com’s online article on May 31.

As one of the founding zip line operators in Colorado, Zip Adventures of Vail has been serving up fun to families, couples, and groups of all sizes since 2005.

“Ziplining is one of the most exciting adventure activities in the world,” said Zip Adventures of Vail owner Charlie Alexander. “People come to Colorado on vacation looking for adventure, and so we’re very proud to have the support from these two well-known travel resources.”

Travel + Leisure Magazine’s article ranks Zip Adventures of Vail as No. 9 of the coolest ziplines worldwide, putting in a league with those in Costa Rica, St. Lucia, Las Vegas, South Africa, Hawaii and Thailand. TravelChannel.com’s top seven ziplines around the world included Zip Adventures of Vail as well as those located at the San Diego Zoo, Costa Rica, Whistler, South Africa, Thailand, and Hawaii.

“Travel Channel and Travel + Leisure are two of the best resources for travel information and vacation planning, so we’re all really excited to be considered one of the best in the world,” said Zip Adventures’ General Manager Matt Seatvet. “It’s such a complement to our owners, staff, and the Vail Valley, and really sets us apart.”

Adventure programs are hosted in stunning mountain settings with breathtaking views of surrounding deep valleys and pine timber landscape. Professional outdoor experts carry guests to the zip line course in a Pinzgauer 6-wheel drive vehicle. Zip line excursions are uniquely designed for a minimal amount of technical expertise required, while providing the safest zip line experience in Colorado.

Zip Adventures recently hosted the zip line at the Eddie Bauer Teva Mountain Games in Vail, where over 250 people zipped across Gore Creek next to the Covered Bridge at the entrance to Vail Village.
