DURANGO, Colo., June 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Soaring® Tree Top Adventures, the largest zipline course in the world, has announced the addition of three new zipline spans that will officially open June 15, 2011. Two of the new spans are over 600 feet long, running side-by-side, allowing guests to race one another as they travel through spectacular old growth forest. The addition of the three spans to the Durango, Colorado zipline canopy tour makes for a total of 27 unique and exciting zipline spans in the all-day, eco-friendly adventure.
Owner and course designer Johnroy Beggrow says, "We already have the world's largest zipline course, one span that's a quarter mile long, a great ecology tour and some of the most spectacular scenery in the country. The racing spans create a little competition as friends and family members Soar side-by-side and try to see who can reach the end platforms first."
Open to the public in 2004, Soaring® Tree Top Adventures has been enjoyed by guests age 5 - 91. The zipline canopy tour has been rated the #1 Attraction in the United States, Colorado and Durango on TripAdvisor.com, a consumer website for posting unbiased reviews of places visited. The company holds several patents, including an ecologically sound, non-invasive system to attach the cables and lacey stainless steel platforms to the old-growth Ponderosa pine trees without a single bolt, nail or screw penetrating the trees.
Soaring consists of over 34 eco-friendly platforms, with 27 spans ranging from 56-1400 feet and several unique elements to get into and out of the trees, and lasts for an exhilarating 5.5 hours. During the adventure, guests Soar over 1.5 miles of zipline spans, stop for a water/snack break, and have time to enjoy a four-course gourmet lunch in the trees overlooking the river.
With no road access to Soaring, the company's tour package also includes Durango's main tourist draw, the historic Durango & Silverton Railroad. Soaring guests travel to and from the zipline location in their own private First Class cars on the world-famous steam train.
