Kentucky launches zipline trail

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (June 8, 2012) — Starting July 1, state visitors and Kentucky locals will be able to embark on an adrenaline fueled tour of the most exciting zipline adventures that Kentucky has to offer. Zip from mountain to mountain, over gorges and ravines, tree top to tree top and even under the city of Louisville … yes, under!

Zip the Bluegrass currently features five distinctive locations across the state, such as Mammoth Cave Adventures (Cave City), Black Mountain Thunder Zipline (Evarts), Red River Gorge Zipline Tours (Campton), The Big Zipper (Maysville), and MEGA Zips (Louisville).

Similar to the Bourbon Trail, Zip the Bluegrass is free to join, and registrants can sign up for their Kentucky unbridled adventure at any of these five locations. Participants are eligible for 15 percent off general admission at the second, third, fourth and final location, as well as an embossed seal on their passport. Upon completion of all five locations, zippers will receive their very own 2012/2013 Certificate of Completion and Zip the Bluegrass T-Shirt.

“Ziplines and canopy tours are the newest, and most exciting types of outdoor adventure,” said Elaine H. Wilson, executive director of the Office of Adventure Tourism. “Zip the Bluegrass not only highlights our most popular zipline destinations, but also some of the most scenic and unforgettable locations Kentucky has to offer. Get out and enjoy these high altitude adventures throughout Kentucky.”
