Alpine Adventures Outdoor Recreation area in located in Lincoln, New Hampshire. At the area are 14 zip lines that run over 2 different courses over 2 miles of exiting adventure through and above the treetops and getting up to heights of 200 feet about the floor of t he forest. The zip lines were the first longest, fastest and highest zip line tour in the New England area and is a leader in the outdoor adventure industry.
To get to the top of the ride, visitors will go on an off-road Safari ride in the 6x6 Swiss army vehicles, Pinzgauers. The platforms are located in the high trees at heights of 25 feet and 65 feet, the zip-lines on the newer tour, `Sky Rider', are between 100 feet and 1600 feet in length. During the winter months when the snow is falling the center offers snowmobiles tours. The `Sky Rider' zip line tour offers side by side racing and higher, longer lines that any other zip line ride.
The zip line tours at the center are true treetop canopy tours; the first course has six zip lines, that range from 80 to 900 feet, and includes the 60 foot high, 75 foot long suspension bridge that runs across Barron Gorge. This tour also includes Zip #7, which is famously known for the optional 35mph free-fall.
Amazing views of the western Whiles are offered on the Treewalk Village. This is where visitors will start the descent to Area 51, which is a plateau and scenic overlook area. The longest zip line, which is 1500 foot long will take visitors 200 feet above the ground to Hemlock Walk. Visitors will then cross two Burma Bridges, that will take them on the 1200 foot zip line at Montego Bay Express, which was named after the centers co-workers at the Jamaican Alpine Adventures location. The last zip line is White Knuckle Pine; this zip line has a drop of 80 feet and reaches speeds of 50 miles per hour.
The center has recently added to their environmentally friendly 4-strock snowmobiles, which can seat two visitors comfortably. A safety orientation is given to all visitors who travel on the snowmobiles and operators are to be 16 years of age with a valid driver's license.
Each season offers something different for visitors; during summer the Pinzgauer is transformed into a convertible to enjoy the warm air. In the fall visitors will see the occasional deer, moose and turkey on the trail while enjoying the changing foliage and in winter the Pinzgauers' show their real off-road capability and provide a thrilling ride that is likened to a low-speed roller coaster. During the spring season is mud season, very, very dirty off-road fun happens then.
The Pinzgauers are modified Swiss army vehicles that can accommodate 11 passengers in blue bucket seats with lap-belts. One of the passengers HAS to ride shotgun in the front! The vehicle has a `kickin' stereo system and mikes for entertainment from the guides and the overhead cages have been padded for extra safety.
The center prides themselves on being able to cater for all guest types and to make their visit a memorable one.
