La Jolla Band Opens Exciting New ZIP ZOOM ZIPLINE


Published:

LA JOLLA ZIP ZOOM ZIPLINE

Today, the La Jolla Band offers an intensely modern and thrilling new encounter for visitors: the LA JOLLA ZIP ZOOM ZIPLINE, the longest ride of its kind in California.

The 6,273-foot course runs parallel to the San Luis Rey River, offering riders breathtaking views of the 4,000- to 6,000-foot peaks of the Palomar Mountain Range, steep slopes, and bottomless green valleys.

An exhilarating juxtaposition of a modern form of entertainment in a place filled with artifacts of older times, the zipline opens up rare views of the backcountry’s untouched, wild terrain.

For the uninitiated, a zipline is an inclined steel cable that supports riders attached to a full-body harness. Once secured, guests zoom down the line. With side-by-side lines at the LA JOLLA ZIP ZOOM ZIPLINE, riders can experience the thrill of flying down the mountain together.

At the campground, riders are given a safety orientation and receive their equipment. Then they are introduced to practice on a training line. The point is to make sure the riders are comfortable with the course and familiar enough with the equipment to assure a safe and fun ride.

After safety training, riders are transported to the highest tower for the second run. Along the way, there are spectacular views of the reservation’s amazing topography, and a chance to learn the history of the area.

The launch for the second run is from 3,000 feet in elevation. Riders soar 2,500 feet across treetops and canyons at speeds that can reach up to 50 miles per hour. There’s a short nature hike through the oaks to the third tower and another ride of 1,430 feet.

For the fourth and final run, riders zoom 2,071 feet through the trees and across the San Luis Rey River, disembarking back at the riverbed in the campground. The entire zipline experience lasts approximately 2.5 hours.

“…water, cool shade trees, and mountains. That’s what people love about this place…” - Tom Rodriquez
