Grouse Mountain Zipline Experience
« on: January 24, 2016, 04:36:07 PM »
awaiting response regarding discounts

Mountain Ziplines
Our dual-line, five-line circuit gives you an adrenaline-pumping tour across the peaks and canyons of Grouse and Dam Mountains. The tour lasts about two hours and can be booked as an individual or as a group.



What the Tour Includes

The zipline experience will give you a unique perspective of Grouse Mountain, combining heart-pounding thrills with an exploration of BC’s old-growth forests. Along the way our fun and friendly guides will look after your safety, and share stories with you that will leave a lasting impression. And then you’ll strap yourself in and...zoom. Make sure to enjoy every second of this jaw-dropping scenery. Because it goes by fast. Crazy, awesome fast.





Summer Shuttle from Downtown

We (Grouse Mountain, not Gatecon) are pleased to offer a free shuttle from downtown Vancouver with the purchase of a Peak Experience ticket throughout the summer. Pickup/drop-off point is Canada Place.

Our complimentary shuttle service is available from late May through September.

Location:


Public Transit
The public transit system offers regular service to and from the base of Grouse Mountain every half hour. Catch Bus 232 - Phibbs Exchange or Bus 236 - Lonsdale Quay

Richard, did you ever find out if there was a discount? Was thinking of doing this after watching the YouTube vid as it seems more than one zip line and quite fun for the 2 hours.

Too bad. This one is closer than Whistler. I'm still considering though because it looks like loads of fun. Thanks for checking on it!  ;)

Only if by 'help' you mean 'make worse', then yes. =)

I firmly believe that there is no time like the present. Carpe Diem anyone? ;)

As for a bad back, might not be the best idea unless you want to wear a back brace. :P Honestly, if I remember correctly, the comments on the video recommend not doing this if you have leg troubles since the impact on a couple stops will be jarring. I'd think this would apply for anyone with back issues as well.
