EXHILARATION

"Go ahead and jump."

-- Van Halen, 1984

Okay, just ignore the stomach-butterflies, the clammy palms, the wobbly knees. That little kid up there, the one that just went all by herself, all the way across... what is she, like, eight-and-a-half? She's obviously having a blast. Deep breath. You got this.

Baby Bear? Done. Just eight more lines to go.

With nine lines totaling nearly two miles in length, Grafton Zipline offers the thrill of a lifetime for folks of all ages. You haven't seen the Best View in the Midwest until you've gazed at the horizon from 250-feet above the earth.

BOOK TOURS online OR BY PHONE

Reservations are highly recommended. Go to http://bit.ly/bookzips to book your tour online. Please note that same-day bookings must be made via phone.

Prefer to book over the phone, or have some zip-related questions? Call us at (618) 786-9477 between 8:30 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. seven days a week. Our office staff is here to help plan your tour and, if needed, put you at ease. You can trust them; they've all zipped at least once.

DOWNLOAD THE WAIVER

Of course, wild & crazy fun like this comes with a catch. All participants must complete and sign our "RELEASE OF LIABILITY AND ASSUMPTION OF RISK AGREEMENT", or waiver. Click here to download the PDF

If you're planning to zip, you can save yourself some time at registration by downloading, printing, and completing the form in advance. Just be sure to bring it with, or you'll have to fill it out all over again when you get here.

Getting Here


Your Grafton Zipline Adventure begins at the top of Timber Ridge Drive in Grafton, Illinois.
If you lose your way, call us at (618) 786-9477 and we'll "walk you in".

We're just fifty minutes from downtown St. Louis, Missouri, and about forty minutes from Lambert STL Airport. If you're in the Land of Lincoln, we're less than two hours from Springfield, Illinois. 

On the map below, use the navigation tools on the left to zoom in/out and move the map (you can also "grab & drag" it). Google Maps hasn't quite found our off-the-beaten-path location, but it'll get you close. Our GPS coordinates are N38° 58’ 32” W090° 26’ 35”.

From Main Street in downtown Grafton, turn right on Mulberry Street, which becomes Timber Ridge Drive at Aerie's Vineyard. Climb the winding blacktop road to the top of the hill; Aerie's Lodge is at the peak. Zipline tour registration is in the lodge office, and tours begin at the "Baby Bear" platform adjacent to the lodge parking lot. To celebrate your adventure, Aerie's Winery is within walking distance, 1500 feet further down Timber Ridge Drive. But remember, our policy of "Zip Before You Sip" is strictly enforced.
