Getting Down to the Finishing Touches with Just Months Until Our Grand Opening

Between the progress of the week and potential progress of the weekend, we have a number of things to report. We have begun pouring the foundation for our gift shop, Wolfe Creek Station, and are excited to get it completed and stocked. We don’t want to give away an idea on the exact sort of items we will be carrying just yet, but we think you will pleasantly surprised by the variety – you may even stop by just to […]

Branson Zipline Unveils a New Tour Option!

As our grand opening draws ever nearer (May 1), we have added a new, exciting tour to our initial line-up of activities. The tour will be titled the Flying Prospector and offers a 1.5 hour, truncated version of the Ozarks Xplorer. Whether you have experienced the Ozarks Xplorer and are looking for a somewhat different experience at Wolfe Creek Preserve or simply don’t have the time to take in the full 2.5 hour Ozarks Xplorer, the Flying Prospector should help […]

Branson Zipline Attaches Roofs to All of Its Zip Line Towers!

Over the past few days, Branson Zipline and Canopy Tour has taken great strides toward completing its first zip line course at Wolfe Creek Preserve. The helicopter has came and went once more (sorry to all those that missed the action live), and we now have roofs atop all of our towers! More than being a symbolic measure of progress, the tower roofs make for great views on the east of Highway 65, near Bonniebrook. As we draw nearer and […]

Branson Zipline’s Zip Line Towers Near Completion

The weather is warming up and the Sun is smiling down on Wolfe Creek Preserve, a welcomed addition to the work schedule. Over the past few days we have recruited a few more crew members and nearly completed securing the footings for the parking lot’s retaining wall. As for the course itself, a few new developments are under way. Currently, we are adding concrete support around each zip line tower for enhanced safety – but don’t worry, we are ensuring […]

Working Towards the Completion of Raising Towers and Laying a Parking lot

It continues to snow on and off throughout the Ozarks, but we won’t let it stop us from getting out to Wolfe Creek Preserve and continuing to develop Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours! Over the past few days, we have completed digging for the basement area of our gift shop, Wolfe Creek Station, and have begun to build the base for the safety barricade for our parking lot. Even more exciting, the roofs to the platform towers that will be […]

Despite More Winter Weather Work Continues

The Ozarks continues to get hit with flurries of snow, and our progress has been impeded on more than on occasion due to the weather, but we have found ways to continue on despite it all. We have officially begun to construct our staff, hiring both our first guide and a sales ambassador. With that being said, anyone interested in potential employment with Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours is encouraged to check our official site regularly for updates on job […]

Branson Zipline Takes Flight with Soaring Results

We rented a helicopter yesterday and made an incredible amount of progress! Again, we rented a helicopter!!! As you will see from the pictures in the image gallery, the crew had a blast sitting back and letting the chopper do all the heavy lifting (to be fair, the crew still worked very hard). In total, we put 38 poles in place, including complete sets for five new towers! The helicopter also helped us put poles in place for our suspension […]

Officially Back on Track

Visit our image gallery right now – don’t even waste time reading this post! Actually, do read the post, but be sure to visit our image gallery as well for some live-action photos of the projects we are currently working on. Our crew working on the actual zip lines is back at it and fully functional, and we’ve got a number of great photos of them atop the towers working hard as ever. Additionally, we have some new photos of […]

Back to Business as Usual

[singlepic id=614 w=320 h=240 float=left]Over the past week, the weather has cleared up (despite being cold as ever), and we are getting back to our expected pace. Part of our crew continues to trim the branches along the course to create a safe path for our zip lines, though we are most excited at being able to return to erecting the platforms and towers and having just broke ground on the basement of our gift shop! Be sure to keep […]

Branson Zipline Stays on Its Grind

There isn’t much to report as we continue on with the ground work. As has been the case off and on over the past few weeks, we are continuing to drill the holes that will eventually stabilize our tower platforms. We know this was mentioned yesterday, but having to drill each hole nine feet into what is more or less solid rock makes for a tedious task. Nonetheless, we are continuing to put the nose to the grindstone and stay […]
