WHAT TO EXPECT:

The tour will take between 1 hour and 2 hours, depending on the number of participants in the group. You will be riding 4 zip lines.

Wear good shoes! You will be hiking about 1/4 mile total and climbing mild grades between the lines.

Your tour starts at the Zip Line Office on the lower level of the Canyon Springs Golf Course clubhouse. You will meet your guides who will lead your group through the training and then zipping the lines on the course.

On the patio outside our office your guides will show you how to ride the zip-line safely and ensure you are comfortable with the gear and harness.

We provide transport along side the Snake River up to the first of the zip lines and back to the club house after the last line.

Guides will share information about the history, geology, and wildlife in the Snake River Plain and Idaho as the group travels between the lines.

We did this adventure for my husband's 58th birthday. It was awesome and he had a ball! He went upside down and completely let go (while in the harness-duh!). I held on and giggled the whole way down all four ziplines. Lots of fun! I'd like to bring our almost-adult kids and they say that we can get a group... More

While travelling we look for fun things for our kids to do. They had a blast. Fantastic employees who share in the excitement with you. They were very professional and even my 13 year old daughter was comfortable with them when being harnessed up.

This is awesome. 4 zip lines. And a 5th mega line to be added soon. The waiver is a bit scary but fun. 9 year old was hanging upside down and spinning while zipping. Pretty darn fun. Too short

We had a wonderful time with the crew and they definitely help you feel comfortable if you are at all nervous. I would highly recommend for people of all ages. There were kids in our group as young as 5 and all the way up to my 66 year old father.

Dave and Zack truly made our trip to Twin Falls unforgettable. We have kids ages 11, 9, 8 and 6 and they had a blast! My husband is handicapped with severe mobility challenges and they made it safe, easy and fun for him to participate and enjoy the adventure with the kids! We will definitely come back to Twin Falls... More

I read the reviews about Zip the Snake on TripAdvisor when I was planning our trip to Idaho. All of the reviews were so good I figured we'd try it. Our 7 year old had zip lined previously so I figured she'd be alright. We arrived and were greeted by JJ & Crystal. They made us immediately comfortable and got... More
