Grand Canyon West Opens New Zipline Attraction
Grand Canyon West continues to add new experiences to thrill the more than one million guests who annually visit the west rim of natural landmark.
The latest addition to the home of Grand Canyon Skywalk? A pair of ziplines that will let adrenalin-seeking adventurers soar nearly 1,000 feet above the floor of a side canyon located amid the rim’s scenery.
The Zipline at Grand Canyon West consists of two “quad ziplines,” each with four steel cables running side-by-side in parallel formation, to allow groups to soar together nearly 1,000 feet above the floor of the canyon – at speeds approaching 50 miles per hour.
The Zipline at Grand Canyon West will be able to accommodate an estimated 350,000 visitors annually. The first of the two lines measures about 1,100 feet in length.
The second line, set at a steeper grade, propels guests on a 2,100-foot-long downhill adventure of a lifetime, complete with views of nearby Quartermaster Canyon and rushing scenery above and below.
