The Zip Rush Tour Ready for Adventurers to Take that Plunge

Looking for that once in a lifetime Tarzan-like thrill? Ascending sky bridges and soaring down a zip line at speeds of more than 20 miles an hour? How about taking that leap and “jumping” from the treetops? Well get ready, because now is your chance! ZipZone Canopy Tours is now offering its new Zip Rush Tour featuring Ohio’s first QuickJump free fall experience.

This new attraction involves hikes across two sky bridges, two zips – one 250 feet in length and a second, 500 feet long – ending with the adrenaline rush of the QuickJump. At the end of the tour, guests are attached to the QuickJump and experience a “free fall” before a special breaking system ensures a soft landing. Incorporating magnetic braking technology, the QuickJump allows for an initial rapid descent of ten feet, then the lanyard will slow jumpers and land them gently on the ground below. For those that would rather not take that “leap,” zippers can rappel down from the tree platform.

“We designed this tour for daredevils looking for a big rush! This tour may be shorter in duration, but big on excitement!” said Lori Pingle, owner of ZipZone Canopy Tours. “Once you’ve experienced the rush of flying through the trees on the zip line, the QuickJump ending really gives the rider another true stomach-flipping thrill.”

The 2014 season is open and tours are booking now. The cost for the Zip Rush Tour is $45 per person and is being offered Friday through Monday. Discounts are available for groups of eight or more and for groups of more than 30 people, the tour can be rented out for parties and corporate events. Guests must register either online at http://zipzonetours.com/, or by calling (614) 847-9477.
