Meet the Guides: Caleb Henley

 Although he’s from Nixa, Missouri and therefore familiar with the beautiful Ozark wilderness, Branson Zipline isn’t the only breathtaking location where Caleb has ziplined. Caleb first went ziplining six years ago when he was visiting Alaska. He’s also gone ziplining in Mexico. Because of his own experiences ziplining, Caleb says that he “enjoys helping other people get the absolute best out of their zipline experience, from start to finish” when they visit Wolfe Creek Preserve. We love his dedication to […]

Meet the Guides: Colin Wilhite

Colin Wilhite is from Branson, which means he’s familiar with the astounding natural beauty that surrounds our property.

Who is Wally Funk?

Recently our sales manager answered a ringing phone with his normal, “Branson Zipline, This is Wes, how can I help you?”.

As it turned out, this woman was none other than Wally Funk and she was headed our way via a bus tour from […]

Meet the Guides: Reece Calton

Reece is the Branson Zipline’s self proclaimed ropes aficionado. Reece is an avid rock climber. He says he’s “hooked on rock climbing, no pun intended.” Reece has a great sense of humor. He can constantly be found learning to tie different knots or trying to lasso a chair or co-worker. “A ship is safe in harbor, but that’s not what ships are for” is one of Reece’s favorite quotes; and we believe it is applicable to ziplining. Ziplining is an […]

The Changing of the Autumn Leaves

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” – Albert Camus How true this statement is. Time after time when our guides are asked what their favorite season to zip in is, they answer “autumn.” The fall is notoriously beautiful in the Ozarks. Each October tourists make their way to Branson with the changing of the leaves as top billing. Not everywhere in the US can you find as beautiful a scenery as the leaves changing colors […]
