Although we’re best known for our world-class zipline course, our beautiful facility is also home to an array of indoor and outdoor activities, rich history, and a natural setting that we take great care to protect. We’re excited to have […]

Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve: Everest

A daunting climb both physically and mentally, Mount Everest has inspired and challenged people from around the world, including Eli Wolfe.

While standing on top of this tower, you’ll experience breathtaking views of the surrounding Ozark Mountains and a gorgeous sunset over far-off hills if you zipline close to dusk. The […]

Bring Back Family Christmas Gifts From the Zipline Gift Shop

The chill of winter is arriving fast, but Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours is still in full swing as we head into December. All across the canopy, visitors can view the last remnants of fall colors on the ground and in the trees as they zip from tower to tower. It’s quite a change from the summer heat, but we still encourage visitors to bring along a bottle of water to stay hydrated while they’re zipping. When you aren’t on the […]

Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve – The Bridge to Nowhere / Nowhere Tower

For this post, we have skipped over one of our towers (Homestead Tower) in an effort to highlight that the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour is not the only premiere canopy tour featured on Wolfe Creek Preserve. Along our 1.5 hour Flying Prospector Canopy Tour, you will begin the journey traversing our famed Bridge to Nowhere, which fittingly leads to Nowhere Tower! ! It is also featured as the fifth zip line along the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour. As with much of our […]

Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve – Compass Tower

Today’s featured tower is Compass. It is the second zip line along the Flying Prospector Canopy Tour and sixth zip along the Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour. And as with most of the zip line towers featured on Wolfe Creek Preserve, Compass was named so by Eli Wolfe for sentimental reasons. As a young boy, Eli was given a compass by his father, Isaac. Ever in hopes of one day exploring the world like his father, Eli saw this gift as […]

Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve – Crow’s Nest Tower

Today, we will be featuring the third tower located on the world-class Wolfe Creek Preserve – the Crow’s Nest.  Aside from its unique design, this particular tower highlights tales of the Wolfe family’s international travels. For many years, Eli’s father, Isaac, traveled the high seas in search of adventure and fortune. And even before Eli himself was able to travel by boat he was mesmerized by the stories his father would bring home. Not surprisingly, in an attempt to be […]

Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve – Lookout Tower

Continuing our look into the individual aspects of our zip line course on Wolfe Creek Preserve, we would like to feature our Lookout tower today. The original owner of Wolfe Creek Preserve, Isaac, was constantly worried about others sneaking onto his property to rob it of its many resources and eventually built a lookout from which he could easily survey the entirety of his property. The original oak tree that the lookout was fastened to has since fell (perhaps, due […]

Getting to Know Wolfe Creek Preserve – Teeppee Tower

At Wolfe Creek Preserve, we feature a variety of eco-adventure options ranging from a single zip line experience to encompassing tours that trek across the entirety of the course. And while we have become one of Branson’s hottest new attractions since opening in May, 2010, we have done little to highlight the individual aspects of the course. That is why we would like to take the time to feature in-depth the numerous zip line towers featured on property, immersing potential […]
