Hidden Valley Opens New ZipTour Attraction
Hidden Valley Expands to Four-Season Operations with New $2.5M Zipline Project
WIldwood, MO. - Hidden Valley, announced today that its new ZipTour ziplines are officially open to the public after a soft opening earlier this month. The $2.5M project, which began back in June 2017, represents a significant investment in offering four-season outdoor recreation opportunities to the Greater St. Louis Area.
The ZipTour opened to the public at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, May 31, 2019 and offers four spans of ziplining fun throughout the tour, that includes two rides up the Gateway Chairlift, and amazing views of the St. Louis skyline and its famous Gateway Arch. With four spans ranging from 300 ft. to 2,800 ft. the ZipTour winds its way across the Hidden Valley resort, visiting both East Mountain and West Mountain, and offers thrills and adventure for the whole family.
“I’m extremely pleased with how this project came out in the end. It was such a great feeling to see the smiles on the faces of our first guests, as they experienced the ziplines for themselves,” said Greg Gavrilets, Vice President and General Manager of Hidden Valley. “While it wasn’t without its hurdles, I’m incredibly proud of our team here at Hidden Valley and Peak Resorts, who were able to make this vision a reality.”
This family-friendly activity is open to ages 10-and-up, and will be offered year-round, with summer operations six days a week, weekend operations in the spring and fall, and weekend operations, weather permitting, in the winter months. Private and group tours will also be offered, making this the perfect outing for anyone from local boy scout troops, church groups, employee team building adventures, or groups of friends. Tours run from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and take about 2.5 hours to complete.
“It’s always a great feeling to see a project like this go from inception to opening, and we couldn’t be happier with how it all turned out,” said Jason Boyd of Peak Resorts, Hidden Valley’s parent company. “I’d like to thank everyone for all the hard work that went into this project, from design, to permitting, and construction, we couldn’t have done any of it without everyone’s drive and dedication.”
ZipTours are currently offered at the full summer schedule of six days a week, with an official grand opening celebration to be held on June 29th, with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. Members of the media are invited to experience the ZipTour and scenic lift ride on Friday June 28th during a special media preview event.
