You Can Take a Ziplining Tour in Eastern Iowa [WATCH]
Over in Dubuque is a zipline adventure unlike any other in Iowa! The Sky Tours experience consists of nine different ziplines, all located at the YMCA Union Park Camp.
All nine ziplines on the tour vary in lengths from 300 to 1,000 feet, with heights reaching 75 feet. To take part in the two hour tour, you must be over the age of ten and weigh between 70 and 270 pounds. In addition to the zipline, guests will also get to hike and explore the historic Union Park during their visit, which first opened back in 1891!
According to the Sky Tours website, here's what you can expect when you arrive for your experience:
"It all begins at Sky Tours check-in where you’ll meet up with your guides for introductions and equipment orientation. You’ll then suit up in gear that meets the highest standards of safety while your highly trained and certified guides tell you what to expect and how to safely navigate the course. Then, after a short hike to the first zipline take-off point, you'll clip in and fly away!"
Here are the nine different ziplines you'll have the chance to try:
- Bunny Run
- Rabbit Run
- Hawk's Nest
- Air Strike
- Ground Speed
- The Duel
- Cross Country
- Over the Top
