A:You'll feel a little like Evel Knievel, minus the potential for broken bones, when you launch over the Alkali Creek Canyon in Wolcott, Colorado, about 20 minutes outside of Vail, during a Zip Adventures tour. A nearly 40-year-old Austrian military vehicle takes guests out to the six lines, which hang deep within the vast 4 Eagle Ranch. The zips vary in length from 200 to 1,000 feet and are essentially wide-open, accentuating their height and speed. Cost starts at $150 per person.
