Ziplining...check

For our anniversary this year we decided instead of exchanging gifts we would cross an item off our Cincinnati Bucket list. We chose to go ziplining and had the best time! We went on the OZone Zipline Adventures at Camp Kern where they had brand new River ziplines!
Here is a map with our zipline course. We did the river tour so all our zipline stops are in blue. We did a total of 7 different ziplines including 2 across the Little Miami River.
We had a brief orientation then we got geared up and headed to our first zipline via a sky bridge.
Our zipline guides told us they would be taking pictures and posting them to a site where we could purchase them later, but I decided to risk taking my camera up with me because...well you are bloggers I don't need to explain myself!  Our guides were awesome and I felt very safe and relaxed the whole time we zipped. Now I'll let the pictures do the talking...
We both loved every second of our Zipline adventure together and want to go back again in the fall! Have you ever been ziplining?

Ahhh, HOW FUN! You guys are too cute and look like you had a blast!! I've never done a "real" zipline, our church set one up for us as kids one year, it was cool, but I'm sure NOTHING like going over a river and the woods!!

Natalie said...

Wow! That looks like so much fun!!! I did a zipline once and loved it... but this course puts that one to shame =)

Katie said...

How fun! I have never been ziplining- I think I would be too scared; I don't really like heights at all. But if I over came my fear I would totally love to zipline!

What a fun way to celebrate your anniversary! I ziplined in South Carolina last summer, but I'm slightly envious of your course!

Lauren said...

We're not big into exchanging anniversary gifts either. Instead we go on a trip or do something totally new together. I like the idea of this!

Ahhhhh so funnnn!!! I had no idea Cincinnati had ziplines. We are from southeastern Ohio (Hocking Hills), so it's always in our heads to take advantage of the ziplines over there. But now that I know it is in Cincy, I may have to suggest this to my husband!

Aw how awesome! Loved that you crossed something off your bucket list :)

I went zip lining in St. Lucia during a cruise. It was a lot of fun! I definitely would do it again!

Katy said...

This is so cool! I just did a zip line/ropes course yesterday and it was incredibly hard and scary. Your views looked amazing!

How much fun! We have been zip-lining and had a great time. We took our camera as well and dropped it! One of the guides went down and found it. It was broken but we got our card out of it which to me was all that mattered :) I didn't think it was near as scary as people made it sound. What did you think? I love the idea of doing things together instead of gifts :) Fun pictures you now have as memories!

Emily said...

I have!! And I loved it. And this is another reason I need to come visit you. This place looks amazing.

Jessica said...

That looks like so much fun!! My manager goes ziplining a lot out near Zanesville and she loves it!!

Brittany said...

What a GREAT idea! I didn't know they did this, either. I'd be a nervous wreck, but I'd love to try it. Maybe I need to look at your bucket list and steal some fun ideas! Haha...You two are so cute!

lori said...
