Long Hollow Canopy Tours has built a zipline course in Tapley Woods near Galena that includes 6 ziplines, a skybridge, rappel course, and more. “Canopy Tour” is a great descriptor, too because that’s what you’ll be doing: ziplining through the forest canopy!
A guided zipline tour with Long Hollow Canopy Tours lasts two-and-a-half-hours, starting with a ride through the trees in a UTV to the first platform. A UTV (Utility Task Vehicle) is a small, four-wheel drive, off-road vehicle, also known as a Side by Side. They can typically seat between 2 to 6 persons, have seat belts, and roll-over protection. A lot of fun to ride in, in other words!
After your ride up to the course, you’ll ascend 15 feet to the first platform and start off. The course glides through the treetops via 6 ziplines, across a 140′ Sky Bridge, then back down to the ground after a 40-foot rappel. 3 of the ziplines are over 700 feet long, including the longest at 1,230 feet! The course reaches heights of 75 feet and riders can go as fast as 40 mph!
Designed and built by Bonsai Design, an industry leader, the course is both exhilarating and safe. Further, all the Long Hollow Canopy Tours zipline staff are ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology) certified. Zipline riders wear waist and shoulder harnesses clipped onto steel cables in two different places at all times, so you can relax and enjoy yourself.
So, what are you waiting for? Come on out and swing through the trees with Long Hollow Canopy Tours!
