Vigilante Extreme ZipRider
Branson’s “Vigilante Extreme ZipRider” stands apart, and quite a bit taller, from all the other ziplines! A popular thrill attraction in many destinations, including Branson, the “ZipRider” takes ziplining up a notch...make that lots of notches...it launches from 170 feet up over the gorgeous Branson landscape! Named for the take-the-law-into-your-own-hands Baldknobbers, authentic Ozarks’ vigilantes, the “ZipRider” may be an extreme adventure, but it’s also extremely simple and safe. Unlike most ziplines, the “Vigilante” seats you comfortably in a chair-like apparatus and securely belts you in; no complicated rigging riding up in all the wrong places! And it’s located at a Branson historic landmark, the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead, the attraction that honors the legacy of the writer and the book - Harold Bell Wright and The Shepherd of the Hills - that put Branson tourism on the map.
Perched securely on a platform attached near the top of the magnificent Inspiration Tower, the “ZipRider” sends you zooming down at speeds up to 50 mph for more than half a mile, letting you enjoy stunning views of the countryside unmatched by any other zipline attraction. Your only real instruction is to lift your feet near the end as the ride glides onto the landing platform and into the capable arms of ride employees. After your dismount, you’ll be taken through the beautiful Homestead property and back up to the mountaintop where your ride began.
There are just a few important things to remember to enjoy the “Vigilante Extreme ZipRider:”
• Don’t lose your shoes! Athletic shoes or other tightly fitting footwear is required. Sandals or flip-flops will need to be removed.
• Age doesn’t matter! You only need to meet the physical guidelines and make your own determination whether or not your health permits you to ride.
• Size matters...just a little! The physical requirements are simple; you must weigh between 75 and 275 pounds and be at least 52 inches tall and no more than 80 inches tall for comfort and safety in the “ZipRider” seats.
• Loose gets lost! You’re responsible for any loose items, and you’ll need to secure them. Best to leave them locked in your car.
In addition to your exciting zip and lovely tram ride, your admission includes access to Inspiration Tower where you can enjoy the beautiful view from the top, and the peaceful grounds around the Tower. To put the biggest zip into your Branson visit, don’t miss the “Vigilante Extreme ZipRider!”
