Choose Your Own Adventure Minneapolis - Zip Lining
Are you a thrill seeker? Why not soar through the woods of Minnesota for a bird’s eye view like I did? I dare you!
Take the control out of your feet, steering wheel, or paddle and let gravity take you for a soar above the Northwoods just outside of Minneapolis on the Minnesota River Byway. The only operator so far, Kerfoot Canopy Tours offers zip line tours all year round with nine lines and various suspension bridges to conquer. It’s a two and a half hour adventure not to be beat.
In fact, it’s an adventure to just get to the course. Once geared up, you are taken via ATVs by the staff on an off-road experience that gets the adrenaline pumping before you even start zip lining. Then, you go through zip line 101 emphasizing braking, speed, and other safety measures.
Then, it’s ready, set, and zip. I can attest, that after the first zip, there’s no looking back with each of the zips different than the next. The longest is over 1,100 feet long, giving you plenty of hang time to take the forest and the ravine below all in.
