The Zipline is the latest year-round attraction at the Olympic Complex and, along with the recently completed Skyride Gondola, the venue now offers a variety of ways to soar and explore the stunning beauty of the Adirondacks.

The Sky Flyer Zipline is an exciting and thrilling attraction for visitors of all ages. If it scares you, it might be a good thing to try, might not it? Guests experience the ride from a seated position as they fly from the 70-foot tower located next to the take off ramp.

Soaring parallel to the Olympic landing hill at a 30-degree decline, riders experience the excitement of an Olympic Ski Jumper. The 700-foot descent gracefully ends near the base lodge on the landing deck.

The recently completed SkyRide Gondola takes visitors up the hillside to the world renowned Olympic Jumping Towers. From there, guests can take the glass enclosed elevator to the top of the 120 meter tower to enjoy panoramic views from the observatory room. The Gondola will be open daily for the remainder of the summer season.

There is also an exterior viewing deck that overlooks the entire landing hill and gives an amazing perspective to what athletes face just before releasing.

The Sky Flyer Zipline will be open Wednesday to Sunday for summer operations through Mid-October, and will operate on weekends for the remainder of fall.
