Glacier View Ziplines

How many ziplines are there? There are two BIG ziplines. This is not a canopy tour. In fact, the total length of our two lines is more than most canopy tours.

How fast do you go? It depends a lot on the wind. We've clocked the Nitro at over 40 mph. Riders on the G2 have gone over 60 mph.

How long does it take? Each zipline is about a one hour experience including gearing up and getting to the top. Each ride lasts about a minute.

Do the ziplines go to the glacier? No, it would be really difficult to build a zipline on ice.

Do the ziplines go across the river? No, we do not own the property across the river. It's also difficult to get government permission to put cables across a river.

What if I'm too scared to step off the tower? This happens. You'll get a few minutes to try then you go back inside the gate while others zip. Then you can try one more time before walking back down the stairs. Sorry, no refunds and no one else can take your place once the tour starts.

Here's a great comparison of two local ziplines from a journalist: Alaska.com

Two. Big. Zips.

The longest, fastest ziplines within 800 miles.
The closest Anchorage Zipline.


The Nitro

Take a short hike then you ascend the three-story tower to start your flight. Enjoy a great view of the surrounding mountains and the river.

Then take the "leap of faith" and fly. The anticipation will get your palms sweaty, and the initial drop will really get your heart pumping. You'll fly down the cable then enter the forest and coast to the end of the line. Many people find that first step to be challenging, but after that gravity does the work!

Length: 1,500 feet (457 meters, over a quarter mile)
Speed: 30 - 40 miles per hour
Height: Launch tower is 30 feet high on a hill 150 feet above the river.
Restrictions: Minimum age 7 years. Max. weight 235 pounds. Max. waist/hip size 42 inches.

The G2

We'll drive you to the top of the cliff, over 250 feet above the Matanuska River. Enjoy the amazing view of the mountains, river and glacier before stepping off the deck for a high-speed zip over 2200 feet long!

Dual Ziplines so you can race a friend to the end of the line!

Launching for the G2 is an entirely different experience from the Nitro and some people find it easier. But the thrill will hit you 2 seconds later when you go over the edge of the cliff and the ground drops 250 feet!

Length: 2,200 feet (670 meters, almost a half mile)
Speed: 45 - 60 miles per hour (maximum recorded speed is 63 mph.)
Height: Launch deck is 12 feet high on a cliff 250 feet above the river.
Restrictions: Minimum age 7 years. Max. weight 285 pounds. Max. waist/hip size 42 inches.
