Utah is now home to the World’s longest “over water” zipline. Built and owned by Zipline Utah, the zipline is known as the “Screaming Falcon.”
Zipline Utah is located at the Deer Creek Reservoir, about 35 minutes from Park City and just South of Heber City, UT. The zipline stretches 3,900 feet over Rainbow Bay on the east side of the reservoir and is open year-round.
The Screaming Falcon zipline is a part of a larger offering from Zipline Utah. The adventure park also features 7 aerial suspension bridges and challenge courses that combine ziplines and towers for courses than can take up to 3 hours.
I’ve ridden two other ziplines in the area, one at Park City Mountain Resort, and one at the Utah Olympic Park, but I can’t say I’ve been on one over water. Sundance Mountain Resort offers a zipline as well just down the road.
There’s some pretty interesting and crazy ziplines scattered throughout the World as well. Some other notable ziplines include:
“Extreme Zipline” Utah Olympic Park – Park City, UT – zipline over the 2002 Winter Olympic ski jump
“ZipRider” Icy Strait Point, AK – largest zipline in the World, 6-person dueling ziplines
“MegasZips” Louisville Mega Cavern – Louisville, KY – World’s only underground zipline
“El Monstruo” Orocovis, Puerto Rico – third longest in the World at 8,300 feet
“ZipRider” Copper Canyon, Mexico – second longest in the World, 2-person dueling zipline at 8,350 feet
“Jebel Jais Flight” Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates – World’s longest at 9,284 feet (1.75 miles) long
