Posted in Colorado Activities & Events on Monday, June 25th, 2012 by booyah.
AVA may have the most thrilling, most fun zip line in Colorado, but, unfortunately, we don’t have the longest zip line in the world. Just remember that just because a zip line is the longest does not mean it’s the best. AVA’s Colorado zip line tours through the forest surrounding the Rocky Mountains and over the rushing Arkansas River is where the real fun is! But just for kicks, let’s take a look at some of the longest zip lines from all over the world, in no certain order.
