13. Do tours run in inclement weather?

Our tours do run in the rain. Canopy Tours got their start in the rain forests of South America where it rains almost every day. Wolfe Creek Preserve is absolutely beautiful during the rain and many of our repeat guests have stated that they prefer to zip in the rain! We only close for lightning or at the discretion of management. If management feels that the weather poses a safety risk, then we will close. Otherwise, we run our tours as scheduled. We do not offer cancellations or refunds unless management closes the course. We have a limited capacity and advance reservations are required. Don't worry about getting wet. You might find that you have more fun than you ever thought possible in the rain!

14. What is your cancellation policy?

We do not offer cancellations or refunds. We have a limited capacity and reservations are required.

16. What kind of training do your guides receive?

All guides receive extensive training by an independent third party training company, are extensively tested, and then course - certified to exceed ACCT standards. We have some of the best guides in the business!

17. What if I have never done a zipline tour before?

No experience is required. Our patient guides will help you have the best possible experience. Oh, and this may be your first, but it won't be your last!
↑ top

18. How soon in advance do I need to make reservations?

You should make them today! We realize this may sound self-serving, but we have a limited daily capacity which forces us to require advance reservations for most tours and we sell out far in advance during the busy seasons.
↑ top

19. Will I need to sign a waiver?

Yes, it is required that you sign a waiver similar to any other you may sign to participate in a physical activity. Parents or legal guardians must sign a waiver for their minor children. The minor waiver can be downloaded here(pdf)..

20. Can I bring a camera?

For the safety of all of our guests and guides, cameras are NOT allowed on any Zipline tour. Your guides will take photographs which will be available for purchase at the conclusion of your tour. Cameras ARE welcome on the Wolfe Creek Photo Safari Tour, which is a ground based tour.

21. What steps have been taken to mitigate danger?

The zip line course at Branson Zipline were designed and built by an Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) - certified builder. Additionally, the course is inspected by a third party inspector periodically throughout the year and is inspected daily prior to opening. The ACCT is the leading U.S. organization that sets safety standards for zipline tours and has been accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). ALL zipline guides are course certified to exceed ACCT standards and have first aid/CPR certifications. We are inspected and licensed by the state of Missouri through the Amusement department. Additionally, our lines are gravity brake lines, so you never need to grab a zipline to stop yourself!
