Bellevue Zip Tour is the only urban course of its kind and size in the area. With 6.5 zip lines (the half line is an exit zip that gets riders back to the ground) ranging from 76 to 450 feet in length, riders will have the chance to get wild in the city while experiencing a birds-eye view of the Downtown Bellevue skyline and North Cascades. Flying through a second-growth forest of Douglas fir and broadleaf maple trees is an added bonus.

The Bellevue Zip Tour is located adjacent to the Discovery Challenge Course which is comprised of three independent elements: a high course, low course and vertical play pen. These elements are the tools used in a series of activities designed to improve the performance and cohesiveness of any group through a combination of teamwork, communication and individual problem-solving.

Groups interested in experiencing the Zip Tour or Discovery Challenge will work with the team at Northwest Teambuilding whose  guides are trained and certified to Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) standards. Northwest Teambuilding is an Accredited Vendor Member of ACCT.

The aerial zip tour is the perfect outdoor activity for thrill seekers, families and groups. Prices are $69 for adults ages 18 and up, and $44 for youth ages 9 to 17. For seasonal schedules, more information, and to register for the grand opening event, visit www.bellevueziptour.com.
