In my 26 years in the adventure travel industry I have watched the eco-tourism business truly take flight. A sky-high adventure like our world class tours in New York can fulfill desires of flight and provides extraordinary scenic views.
Hunter, NY (PRWEB) May 03, 2011
Combine the thrills of Costa Rica’s most popular adventure attraction with the pristine landscape of the Catskill Mountains for a spring getaway that’s perfect for adventure seekers in need of an adrenaline fix. Ziplining is no longer reserved for Central American jungle vacations. Visitors to the Catskill Mountains can now experience a high-flying adventure on one of two new Zipline Tours owned and operated by New York Zipline Adventures (http://www.ZiplineNewYork.com), including the Skyrider Tour, North America’s longest, highest and fastest zipline experience.
“It’s true that many people associate ziplining with exotic vacations, but more and more people are beginning to realize that they don’t have to travel far to experience the unique adrenaline rush you get from ziplining,” said Bradd Morse, Zipline Builder and Principal Partner of New York Zipline Adventures. “In my 26 years in the adventure travel industry I have watched the eco-tourism business truly take flight. A sky-high adventure like our world class tours in New York can fulfill desires of flight and provides extraordinary scenic views.”
Situated in Hunter Mountain two hours north of New York City, thousands of visitors have traversed the forest canopy with New York Zipline Adventure Tours during their debut first season and the company is anticipating an even busier spring season as the popularity of ziplines continues to grow.
New York Zipline Adventure Tours offers experiences for every thrill level, from mild to extremely wild. The Mid-Mountain course is a true canopy tour that takes guests through the forest on six ziplines, four jungle bridges and an exciting rapel. The Mid-Mountain tour serves as great introductions to zipline for newcomers.
For those in search of the ultimate thrill, the Skyrider Zipline Tour will send guests flying at speeds of close to 50 MPH on side by side racing zips extending as long as 3,200 feet and more than 600 feet in the air. The total course covers more than 4.6 miles of forest and includes 5 unique dual ziplines, a 500 foot jungle bridge, and a Zapline.
Tours range from $89 to $119 and reservations are strongly recommended due to high demand. New York Zipline Adventure Tours is located 2 hours north of New York City and is open daily from 9 am to 4 pm.
