    Ice Climb

    Unfortunately for timing purposes an Ice Climb and the Extreme Zip Adventure would need to be split over 2 days.

    Helicopter Tours

    Our Alaska zipline check in location is located right where our helicopter tours touch down! Contact us about tour timing. Helicopter Adventures

The Full Extreme Zip Adventure is a two line zipline tour!

The Nitro

Take a short hike then you ascend the three-story tower to start your flight. Enjoy a great view of the surrounding mountains and the river.

Then take the “leap of faith” and fly. The anticipation will get your palms sweaty, and the initial drop will really get your heart pumping. You’ll fly down the cable then enter the forest and coast to the end of the line. Many people find that first step to be challenging, but after that gravity does the work!

  • Length: 1,500 feet (457 meters, over a quarter mile)
  • Speed: 30 – 40 miles per hour
  • Height: Launch tower is 30 feet high on a hill 150 feet above the river.

Please note:
• Minimum age: 7 years

• Minimum weight: 60lbs

• Maximum weight: 235lbs

 (Consider riding the G2 if under 285lbs)

• Max waist/hip size: 46 inches. 

The G2

We’ll drive you to the top of the cliff, over 250 feet above the Matanuska River. Enjoy the amazing view of the mountains, river and glacier before stepping off the deck for a high-speed zip over 2200 feet long!

Dual Ziplines so you can race a friend to the end of the line!

Launching for the G2 is an entirely different experience from the Nitro and some people find it easier. But the thrill will hit you 2 seconds later when you go over the edge of the cliff and the ground drops 250 feet!

  • Length: 2,200 feet (670 meters, almost a half mile)
  • Speed: 45 – 60 miles per hour (maximum recorded speed is 63 mph.)
  • Height: Launch deck is 12 feet high on a cliff 250 feet above the river.

Please note:
• Minimum age: 7 years

• Minimum weight: 60lbs

• Maximum weight: 285lbs

• Max waist/hip size: 46 inches.
