Zip Line Canopy Tours
February 1-19 | Sweethearts Zip and Kiss Romance
Take a zip photo - add Hearts and Cupids to it - Romance is in the air at eXplore Brown County. The brisk winter air feels cozy warm as your honey hugs you 90 feet in the air and displays their devoted love. It is nice to know someone special is waiting for you as you soar on our “hands free” zip lines up to 90 feet over the lake. Just in case your honey didn’t hug you tightly enough or the adrenaline has not kicked in, there is hot cocoa waiting for you in the nice warm Harvest Hall. Don’t forget the marshmallows!
eXplore Brown County offers 15 world-class zip lines, the Fastest, Longest and Tallest Twin Racing Zip Line in Indiana! Soar over a mile of cable from heights of 20’ to 70’ through treetops, over hollows and our lake. The zips incorporate trees and poles, with a mix of both ground and elevated take-offs and landings. The length of the zips range from 80' - 1220' and include tower rappelling, side-by-side zips, scenic tree towers and The Screamer! a ¼ mile 1220' zip, an adventure you won’t soon forget!
