Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours Reveals

Freefall Xpress Is The Final Step on Blue Streak Fast Line

(Monday, July 25, 2010 ~ Branson, MO) On the outer edge of Branson, Missouri, just north of the shows and theaters, sits Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours at Wolfe Creek Preserve. Branson’s newest attraction is the home of many unique eco-adventures including the Blue Streak Fast Line with the Freefall Xpress. This thrilling experience begins with a nearly quarter-mile zip that reaches heights of over 150 feet before landing onto a 100-foot tower.  “Then many of our guests are surprised to find that from there, it’s a freefall from the top of the tower to the ground,” says Emma Hamilton General Manager. “The landing feels like you’ve jumped only 8-inches in the air.”

At Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours the only experience that has the Freefall Xpress as a method of dismounting from the 100’ platform is the Blue Streak Fast Line. The other experiences are guided, low-impact canopy tours where guests traverse multiple ziplines, sky bridges, and platforms soaring through the trees and above the forest fauna.   Some guests choose to combine a canopy tour with the Blue Streak Fast Line in order to experience the Freefall Xpress.

A unique rewind mechanism is incorporated in the fan that powers the Freefall Xpress, providing subtle tensile strength as the fall begins. The fan is driven by the descending person’s mass. There is no external power source. The PowerFan© allows a person to fall 70-feet before gently slowing over the next 30-feet to a complete stop. Emma says, “On the Freefall Xpress stepping off the platform into thin air is an exhilarating experience. Taking the step is the challenge; once you’ve done it you’ll want to do it again with your eyes open.”

Aside from being used to train paramilitary troops, power fans have been used commercially in areas such as Europe, though Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours has the first and only PowerFan© used for a 100-foot freefall in North America!  “Taking the Blue Streak Fast Line goes beyond just an amazing zip experience,” says Emma. “With the Freefall Xpress our visitors are the first to experience this cutting edge adventure.”

Visitors to Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours at Wolfe Creek Preserve are also enjoying some unique nocturnal adventures – the Prospector In The Dark and the Ozarks Xplorer In the Dark. These evening and nighttime canopy tours have limited availability but they do allow adventurers to see the Ozark Mountains in a whole new way.  As always the popular Flying Prospector Canopy Tour, Ozarks Xplorer Canopy Tour, and Blue Streak Fast Line with the Freefall Xpress are operating daily.  Reservations are recommended as tours are often sold out several days in advance.

All experiences at Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours are conducted by certified guides. Branson Zipline & Canopy Tours courses meet and exceed Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) standards.  Emma adds “With us, you can relax and safely enjoy your authentic eco-adventure in the Ozark Mountains!”
