When most think of ziplining, they think you have to go on a tropical vacation to experience it. Not so Central Texas friends - Lake Travis Zipline Adventures is less than a 30 minute drive from downtown Austin and features the 3rd, the 2nd and the LONGEST zipline in Texas!! My children and I were able to experience it last week it is was just as my son describe it, "Best Day EVER!"
Lake Travis Zipline Adventures is on an isolated corner on the north side of Lake Travis. The course sits on 88 acres, with only 2% of the land actually developed for the ziplines. This is their 3rd season and they are quickly becoming more and more popular as they word gets out how fun this is.
The guides, I have to say, have the most fun job! They are entertaining yet there for your safety and they do an excellent job of that. After a few brief instructions, we gear up and head to our first zipline.
Remember what I said about not wanting to go fast? Yeah, that all went out the window as I saw the person zooming past me. This momma curled up into a cannonball and won that race! Whee!
If the daytime hikes intimidate you in the heat, there are sunset hikes on the weekends and once a month full moon zips too.
And check out this deal in June ----> Children under 17 can go for free with a full-price adult! Offer is good on Monday-Thursday until June 30. Now you have no excuses to go.
