Road America is now offering an above ground, no experience necessary, high adrenaline rush. Race a friend or family member on our incredible 1200-foot twin zip line at speeds up to 50mph for the thrill of your life! Anybody who is in good health, and fits within the weight requirements (typically 70-275lbs) can experience the fast paced, high intensity adventure of zip line traversing on one of the Midwest's tallest and fastest zip lines. All you need is the courage to step off the platform.
The zip line launch tower is located just a couple of minutes walk from the paddock, across the Corvette Bridge high above Turn 13. The cable follows a path from the hillside overlooking Turn 13, down to a landing tower overlooking Turn 14 and the North Paddock. During the ride you will have the rare opportunity to take in some of the beautiful Road America scenery and racing from above.
Please note: A zip line release & waiver of liability form must be completed for this activity. You can complete the form when you arrive, or print, complete and hand in when you purchase your zip ticket.
During public events the zip line will open for walk up purchases at the landing platform to those already possessing a general admission ticket. Zip line tickets will also be available online and can be purchased when buying event admission tickets. The pricing during these public events is $20 per zip per person or $30 for 2 consecutive zips.
For those looking to visit Road America at their leisure and experience the excitement that zip line offers we have created the perfect opportunity. On select dates the zip line is open to the general public through our online zip ticketing program. Simply select the date and time that works for you and show up at the track 30 minutes before your scheduled departure. The price for the zip ticket is $40 per person and includes two zip line rides and admission to the facility (which typically includes on track activities). These packages are only sold online and in advance only.
Do you have a group looking for a fun activity? Look no further as zip lining is perfect for family, social, club, school, and even bachelor and bachelorette parties. Groups of 20 or more can book their own private adventures by calling the Road America offices at 1-800-365-7223 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

It is important to remember that foul weather in your area does not necessarily mean foul weather for us. In some cases, zip lining will be postponed to allow for the weather system to pass. Once the inclement weather passes, we then will resume zip lining. Many magical tours have occurred during or right after a summer storm has passed through. So, as not to deprive you of a great experience, we are likely to wait and see!

Jewelry, cell phones and personal possessions should be stored in your vehicle or left at home. We are not responsible for personal property lost, damaged, or stolen.
