Canopy Tour Podcast
More than a zipline...it's an adventure!
Buffalo Outdoor Center is home to Arkansas' premier wilderness zipline experience! Many of our lofty, tree-friendly platforms are built around actual live Ozark Mountain hardwood trees. And, we'll eat our helmets if our tree team isn't one of the finest, most safety-conscious group of zip line guides in America.
The tour is for guests ages 7+ and who weigh between 70 and 250 lbs. We zip rain or shine and during rainy day zips the weight limit may be reduced to 200 Ibs. Click here for answers to frequently asked questions about our Buffalo River Canopy Tour, including guidelines and health restrictions.

WHAT IS A ZIPLINE CANOPY TOUR?
Guided zipline canopy tours originated in Costa Rica as a way for people to experience the flora and fauna that is unique to the dense leafy canopy of a rainforest. Our Ozark Mountain hardwood forest canopy has its own bird, plant, and animal life, which our guided tour is designed to introduce you to as you glide along from tree to tree!
From a structural standpoint, our canopy tour is a system of cables and platforms, wherein the participant "glides" or "zips" through the treetops while connected to the cable via a harness. A large wooden platform serves as a landing base in each tree that you "zip to." Our canopy tour facility was built in accordance with Association of Challenge Course Technology recommended guidelines.
The tour takes approximately 2 hours to complete, give or take a few minutes. Precisely how long it lasts is determined by a variety of factors, including weather and the physical ability of each participant.
