Zipping through the trees of Bellevue


Bellevue Zip Tour features 6.5 zip lines (the half-line is an exit zip to get riders back on the ground) amidst a second-growth forest of Douglas fir and broadleaf maple trees in Eastgate Park. The lines range from 76 to 450 feet in length. The highest zip line is 80 feet off the ground. Each tour takes approximately 2.5 hours to complete.
