 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!

There are 6 tours to choose from: eXplorer Tour zips #4-8 | Zip On Tour zips #1-3, 9 & 10 | The Screamer Tour zips #9 & 10, Be A Hero Zip and the two Night Flight Tours.

“AMAZING ZIP LINES!!! June 2014 

I went zipping for the first time June 1, for my birthday. I am terrified of heights but the staff there was wonderful. They helped me get through the Explorer Tour and made my time there very enjoyable. In addition to being the fastest, tallest, and longest zip lines in Indiana, the views from the lines were extraordinary. The staff is VERY well trained in safety, which really helps when you are terrified and the prices are amazing compared to other zip facilities in Indiana. It was definitely an unforgettable birthday. While there I was also able to view the rest of the facility. They have other attractions (paintball, ATV tours, camping and cabin rentals, hiking, mountain bike trails. etc). They also have a Harvest Hall that can be used for weddings, family reunions, grad parties, etc. So if you're looking for an all-around good time.at a price you can afford I would recommend checking them out.

“Night Flight” - Reviewed November 4, 2014

Had friends from out of town and was looking for something to do on a cold November 1st night. Bill and Tim our Zip guides did an outstanding job. Our friends had zipped in Costa Rica and preferred these lines over that zip. The crisp air, the moon shining on the lake, zipping into a dark abyss, and so many giggles- truly a night to remember!!! GREAT time!!!!! Thank you Bill and Tim!!!!!! Visited November 2014

Three girlfriends & I traveled to Brown County to celebrate a milestone birthday by doing something out of our comfort zone. We signed up for a 2 hr zipline & while there, realized one friend was just as frightened of heights as I was. My 2nd friend was also a rookie & our other friend previously did a zip line, in Ohio. She was instrumental in convincing us to try it...and I have to say, we can't stop thanking her...it was an AWESOME experience ! Our fearless leaders with eXplore, Roo & Zach, made the entire adventure a total blast ! Both guys were not only entertaining, they were extremely patient, kept us calm, relaxed & laughing, which definitely helped me overcome my fear. "Thank you" to the employees who assisted with the reservation process & the zip leaders....all were professional, patient & helpful...and most of all, fun ! We will be back again within the next 12 months to enjoy another ride in the sky!
