Hours & Info

ZIPstream Aerial Adventure Courses include something for just about everyone!


ZIPstream's self-directed courses for children, youth, and adults allow participants to move through a series of fun, exciting, and progressively challenging tree to tree activities. With multiple elements included in a single course, participants can decide how far they go.


All courses are graded by color coded diamonds, progressing from Green, to Blue, to Red, to Black. At each level the challenges become both higher and more difficult as participants progress through the diamond paths. Currently, Ruby Falls ZIPstream has implemented Stage 1 including both the Green and Blue Diamond Courses, with the vision for the future to add the Red and Black Courses.


Ruby Falls ZIPstream Aerial Adventure includes 30 highwire challenge elements including ladders, nets, walkways, bridges, tunnels, and zip lines all set into three distinct courses: Green and Blue Diamond for ages 11 and up, and an Orange Diamond for children ages 6-10.

The Ruby Falls ZIPstream Aerial Adventure challenge is made up of suspended obstacle courses built in trees that include ladders, nets, walkways, bridges, tunnels, and zip lines! There is a demonstration area and something for all ages with green and blue diamond courses available - for one price!

  • Timing - The course should take about 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete, depending on the pace you choose to set. The course is designed so you can pass slower participants at each platform, if you desire to.  Due to a high volume of participants on weekends and holidays, time to complete the course could lengthen. Please allow additional time when planning.
  • Belay System - all ZIPstream courses at Ruby Falls utilize a continuous belay system that keeps particpants securley connected to the safety cable through the entire course. There are no transfers that the participant has to make, which eliminates the possibility of a participant unintentionally disconnecting the safety system while in the air.
  • Staff - All courses are overseen by trained, qualified Adventure Guild staff.
  • Ziplines - Ziplines culminate both the blue and green diamond courses. New this year - the orange diamond children's course now culminates in a zipline!
