Looking for that perfect daring escape for you, your friends or family? Zip Chicago Canopy Tours provides an experience you will not soon forget. It will create memories that last a life time. The tour has 8 different cables (150- 1,000' long and dual racing 800 footers!) each with its own characteristic of speed, heights roughly 85 feet off the ground, and great oversights of the river valley below. Your own personal Chicago wilderness awaits, an adventure that will make you scream and giggle like you are a kid again. We have no age limits but we do have weight limitations; our minimum being 70 pounds firm and our maximum 275 pounds. The tour is completely guided and contains no motorized machines for propulsion. All you have to do is enjoy your flight! Our guests can reach speeds of up to 45 mph. The platforms and suspension bridges are surrounded by an assortment of native trees. Check out our different tours to see which adventure is the right one for you!

Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Reasonable prices and convenient scheduling. Beautiful wooded area with hills. I suggest the longer tour (we took the shorter tour and the kids thought it was too short).
