Zipline Tour

Quick Details

Affordable Big Bear Ziplining Year-Round

Fly through the forest at speeds up to 35 mph on nine high-speed zipline runs that gradually become longer, faster and higher off the ground as you go. Catch amazing views of Johnson Valley and the highest peak in Southern California, Mt. San Gorgonio.

Trek a teetering suspension bridge over mountain terrain right after your first zipline. Our expert staff of tour guides will show you how to have the most fun ziplining in Big Bear.

Travel through town on the way to and from the course with our knowledgeable drivers and learn about our town’s other activities, places to stay, and amazing restaurants to visit during your stay.

Once you exit our zipline vans you will hop into our Swiss Army Vehicles for a two-mile ride on an unmaintained road through the forest, until you reach the ultimate mountain getaway, our Action Zipline course.

Our motto is safety first, fun second. We are the only zipline built according to San Bernardino county building and safety codes and certified by the state of California! Your safety is our top priority.

  • Chevron down Rules & Requirements
  • 1. Dress Correctly

    What should you wear while ziplining? While it will vary from season to season we generally recommend fitted workout apparel or clothes that are not too baggy. Shorts with smaller inseams (short shorts) may make the rider uncomfortable in the harness. In the winter you will need to layer up but try to keep your clothing as comfortable as possible. We do provide gloves but you are more than welcome to bring your own knitted gloves to wear inside the ones we provide for you.

    Protect your feet – When considering appropriate footwear you will always need to have closed-toed shoes, and you will need to avoid sandals and flip flops as they are not allowed on the tour. You do not have to hike or climb during the tour but we have found that sneakers and boots offer you the most comfort and protect your feet.

    Hats and glasses – Eyeglasses and sunglasses are allowed on the tour. Hats and beanies are allowed as well though you will be required to wear a helmet for the entire length of the course.

    2. Our tour guides are there to help

    Our course is designed to accommodate and excite riders of every level. Whether it is your first experience or you are a seasoned zipline pro, we have certified tour guides on hand every step of the way. If you have any questions about the course or if you are looking for tips in conquering an element, ask away – we love to help!

    3. Click away, but please no selfies

    We allow cell phones and GoPros on our course but we ask that you remain hands-free while you are ziplining. Sticking with zipline tradition, we use a hand braking technique and you are required to break yourself on all of the lines, so please limit the snapshots to the platforms only. (Feel free to record or photograph friends and family members while you are on the platform).

    If you aren’t comfortable with taking your own photos, we will have a photographer on site for groups of four or more and you can select photos for purchase when you return to the office.

    4. Enjoy the mountain views

    You will be starting your zipline adventure at 8,400 feet in the middle of the forest and we want you to enjoy every second of the views. Our zipline is surrounded by Johnson Valley, the highest peak in southern California; Mt. San Gorgonio, and beautiful canyons full of coniferous trees. Keep an eye out for wildlife such as deer, eagles, hawks, and chipmunks that visit our property throughout the day as well.

    Please remember that since you will be in the forest, we ask that you help us prevent forest fires – no smoking is allowed during the tour.

    5. Please, no bumps, broken bones, or other major health conditions

    We absolutely love little ones and we look forward to having you and your child on our tour in the future, but pregnant women are not allowed to participate in the zipline tour.

    We also strongly advise that anyone with a heart, lung, back or serious health condition consult their physician before participating.

    If you are concerned that you may require medication at any point during the tour, we want you to know that you are allowed to travel with your supplies. Please inform the office staff at check-in and we will coordinate with the tour guides to accommodate your needs.
