Ziplining on a rainy day is an exciting activity that makes for a totally unique experience, even if you’ve been ziplining hundreds of times before. At first I thought that an activity like that in the rain would be dangerous, as I’m sure the same thing has crossed your mind too. But the guides at Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours surprised me when they said the rainy days are actually the most fun ones to spend zipping down the lush woods of Wolfe Mountain. And it’s still safe!
Zipline canopy tours first began in the rain forests of South America where it rains just about every day and the system made of pulleys and a stainless steel cable should be no cause for worry, even during rainy weather. Even still, you’ll be happy to note that zipline courses will close when the inclement weather includes lightning.
When you zipline through the rain, it’s almost as though time has slowed down and you’re traveling through the forest just as quickly as the heavy drops of rain that soak the trees and dirt of the Ozarks mountains. So if your Branson vacation gets ambushed by rainy weather and you and your family aren’t afraid to get a little wet, get outside and experience the thrill of ziplining through the rain. You’ll have an amazing story to tell when you get back home!
Branson has a number of great ziplining opportunities ranging from the Branson Zipline’s full-fledged zip courses and suspension bridges down the mountain to a quick, fast zipride across Lake Taneycomo on Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Zipline.
