Ziplining Kentucky -
Fly Through the Air with the Greatest of Ease

September 25th, 2013 by Corey A. Edwards

There are lots of things you can do in while vacationing in our state – but few are likely to be as exciting as ziplining Kentucky.

Most people probably don’t realize it but ziplining (also known as “an inclined strong,” “flying fox,” and “Tyrolean Crossing”) was actually invented out of necessity as a method of conveyance. Used in remote and impassable areas in the wilderness, ziplining allows gravity-fueled transport for goods and people that might otherwise never reach their intended destination.

“Wooooooooo-ha!” Red River Gorge
Zipline Tours will thrill you

All of which makes me wonder: how long was it before some guy stepped off a utility-based zipline, eyes wide, heart racing, and shouted: “YES! WHOOOOO! I WANT TO DO THAT AGAIN!”

If you’ve ziplined before then I don’t need to tell you but, if you haven’t, there’s nothing quite like it: zooming above the trees, the wind whipping past you, safe and secure in your harness, nothing but the sounds of nature and the ziiiiiiiiip! of the line as you slide along it.

Red River Gorge Zipline Company

Kentucky’s Red River Gorge Zipline Company has a number of ziplines in their Canopy Tour that will have you flying above the treetops in no time.

With 5 Ziplines – from 330 FT. to 1900 FT – on the course and a tour lasting between 2 and 3 hours, you know you are in for a thrill and a treat. The last 2 lines on the Red River Gorge’s Canopy Tour course are Dual Racing Zips that allow you to zip along at speeds of up to 55 miles-per-hour while soaring a full 300 feet over the Red River Gorge. Compete with a friend to see who can reach the end first. Whoooo-eee! You have *got* to try ziplining Kentucky!
