Working Around Winter Weather

As we roll into January we are beginning to get back to business as usual at Branson Zipline… for the most part. Our drill team is continuing to plug away, currently completing the necessary holes for what will eventually be platform/tower # 3, though this will be the fifth site in total they have worked on. It may not sound too difficult to drill a few holes, but you have to keep in mind that our crew has to drill […]

Winter Weather Threatens to Slow Us Down; We Are Aren’t Afraid

[singlepic id=425 w=320 h=240 float=left]Just as soon as we get back into the thick of it the weather decides to turn sour! We finished drilling holes for our latest platform site, bringing us to a current total of five platform locations and two standing platforms. We had high hopes to get more platforms started this week and continue drilling holes at the remaining platform sites, but that plan seems to be changing. We are expecting to get hit with another […]

Returning to Work at Branson Zipline

With the holidays behind us it is time to return to work at Branson Zipline! We have brought in an excavation team to help us get the drills to some of the more stubborn areas of the property, and while it has definitely been a process we are making steady progress. In particular, the icy paths are making it difficult, but we hopefully won’t have to deal with that issue much longer. As for progress on the actual zipline course, […]

Continuing to Take Care of the Details

[singlepic id=257 w=320 h=240 float=left]Even with the majority of our crew on leave for the holidays we are managing to find ways to stay busy and keep a steady stride towards the eventual opening of Branson Zipline. At the moment, much of our energy is being spent on creating new paths to make maneuvering the property easier and drilling the holes for the platforms we plan to erect within the next month. Aside from creating new paths and preparing for […]

More of the Same at the Moment (That’s a Good Thing)

[singlepic id=225 w=320 h=240 float=left]There’s not really anything progress to report on today. The portion of the crew that is still in town is continuing to work on spreading dirt for what will eventually be the parking lot and gift shop area and are continuing to drill holes for eventual zipline platforms, but that’s about all that is happening at Branson Zipline. This may be the last post until the new week, so until next time have a safe weekend […]

Construction Continues Throughout the Break

The portion of the crew that works on installing the ziplines and platforms has officially taken off for the holidays, but we are still hard at work at Branson Zipline. If you compare the newest pictures in the image gallery with the pictures from the past few weeks you should be able to begin to notice that the entrance road and land just to the left of the entrance road as you enter the property are beginning to look quite […]

Big Progress Before the Break

[singlepic id=194 w=320 h=240 float=left]The first zipline is officially working! One of the platforms it attaches to is incomplete and the only way to stop is to ram into a giant pole, but it still works! This is great news going into the break, which begins this weekend and lasts through the holidays. We do plan to continue work on aspects of the grounds, hopefully completing the parking lot by the time the portion of the crew that works on […]

Continuing Work On Our First Two Platforms

[singlepic id=193 w=320 h=240 float=left]As we continue to near completion on the first two platforms, a variety of other changes and progress are taking place at Branson Zipline. Currently, we are working on the specifics of the zipline placement, trimming tree lines to ensure that our visitors won’t get caught on stray limbs. Also, throughout the day, the dump trucks were continue to show up just about every hour on the hour with dirt to help level the parking area […]
