Thrill-seekers soar above treetops in Cedar Park, Texas
While many activities in Cedar Park, Texas revolve around our relaxing, family atmosphere, we do have a few surprises and adventures in store for those thrill-seekers who need an extra dose of adrenaline to get through their weekend! One of these opportunities exists at Lake Travis Zipline Adventures , home to five zip lines- including the longest zip line in Texas, which is over 2,000 feet long.
Zipping across incredible Canyons and Lake Travis inlets, your Lake Travis Zipline experience offers unmatched Thrills and Chills! While waiting between each zip, you will enjoy amazing views of Lake Travis and the Texas Hill Country. Your professionally trained tour guides offer educational and challenging hikes and less strenuous nature walks where you will learn about the native flora and fauna of the Texas Hill Country. Your final finale will be a launch off a cliff 20 stories above Lake Travis on the longest zipline in Texas.

The best part? The bird’s eye view of some gorgeous Hill Country acreage, owned and managed by the Lower Colorado River Authority. The series of six zip lines slings riders over three canyons, a creek, fields of waving bluestem grass and towering loblolly pines, all within view of the Colorado River.The second best part? Listening to fellow zip liner Lauren Rozelle scream like a baby as she flies through the air.Rozelle, marketing coordinator for LCRA, harbors a healthy fear of heights. The zip lines, which range in length from 146 feet to 1,316 feet, put riders as high as 70 feet above the ground at some points. The system uses a bank of springs at the end of each line to slow riders, so no hand braking is required. But riders sometimes experience a jolt when they coast in.
All our equipment is the product of meticulous crafting and careful engineering.
Our Tour Guides go through an extensive 40 hours of training that includes a CPR and Outdoor First Aid program custom created for our course. Plus, they are also highly entertaining and ensure you are having the time of your life.
Every day, our manager thoroughly inspects all ziplines, platforms, trails, and equipment on each of our courses.
Each year, and accredited ACCT inspector conducts a comprehensive review of each zipline, piece of equipment and all current practices.
It’s a quick hike between zip line sections, and some require a wobbly scramble up a swinging bridge to the launch point. It’s all part of the fun. Guides, who take safety seriously, make sure we’re clipped into safety lines every step of the way. We’re also required to wear helmets.The system was designed with equestrian safety in mind, too. Aware that buzzing lines and squealing visitors might spook horses, LCRA limits trails on the east side of the park to human hikers only, says Margo Richards, vice president of community resources for LCRA.Besides offering a shot of adrenaline, zip lines offer access to land without impacting it or damaging it, says Lake Travis Zipline. LCRA owns the land, but Lake Travis Zipline built and owns the zip lines and towers.
