The Soaring Eagle Zip Line Canon City , the highest zip line in the world, will made its debut at the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park in the Spring of 2012. Perched on the 1,000 foot granite wall on the north side of the R.G.Bridge, the ride will have two zip lines carrying two riders each, and will zip 700 feet over canyon walls from 1,000 to 800 feet above the Arkansas River, and then zip back at approximately 35 miles per hour. Riders are secured into a “chair” that gives them the freedom of movement for the arms and legs.
This ride is very family friendly and is a perfect thrill ride to enhance the wonderful experiences that the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park Royal already has to offer.
I love the expressions on the faces of these 2 guys!I have friends who had taken this trip but I haven’t done it – yet!
