About Us

The first commercial zipline in colorado

captain zipline salida colorado our story 2

Captain Zipline has been operating since 2005 and are proud to own the title of the first commercial zipline in the state of Colorado. Contrary to the growing popularity of ziplines in tropical locations, we were the first to offer the exhilarating experience of flying over 200 foot, high-rising cliffs. Since opening, we have added Colorado’s largest Aerial Challenge park, with 120 obstacles spread out among a variety of skill-leveled courses that can suit your whole family. Our vision for Captain Zipline extends further than any of the 100s of feet of zipline that we offer. In the coming years, we plan to expand and grow all of our tours with new courses, longer ziplines, new and shocking attractions, and a growing staff that aims to provide a personable and safe experience. Suspend your fear and join us at Captain Zipline.

Meet Owner and Captain, Joshua Spomer 

Legend has it that Josh dropped out in the 3rd grade to become a zipline guide. That may be a tall-tale but it was around that age that Josh built his first zipline in his backyard and his experience and ability has only sky-rocketed since. If they were to offer doctorates in “Zip-ology,” we might have to call him Dr. Captain Josh. He has 10+ years of guiding at Captain Zipline and an equal amount of time of building experience in the industry. After building our very own Aerial Challenge Park, Josh traveled all over the United States building Ziplines & Aerial Parks with a world-renowned team of fellow “Zip-ologists.” In his free time, Josh loves to trek through the wilderness, climb 14ers, and enjoy a campfire with friends. He feels as though he has accomplished his life-long dream of owning his own Zipline Company and is proud to be the Captain of Captain Zipline.
