Vancouver zipline

Add adventure to your life by ziplining at the highest point in the city!

To celebrate Queen Elizabeth Park’s 75th anniversary, the Vancouver Park Board and Greenheart International Development Corporation have installed a temporary zipline in Queen Elizabeth Park.

The attraction is geared towards thrill-seekers, nature-lovers, families, couples, and anyone looking to experience something new in Vancouver.

What you'll experience

From the launch tower next to Bloedel Conservatory, you'll fly to the opposite side of Quarry Gardens suspended from one of three parallel cables.

You'll be propelled by gravity about 190 metres (623 feet) without any motor or engine.

The Queen Elizabeth Park zipline can be enjoyed by children and adults from 27 to 113 kg (60 to 250 lb).

The new attraction can transport 60 people per hour and will have virtually no environmental impact on the park.

Opening hours

The zipline opens to the public today, July 2, from 3:00pm and 7:00pm.

The grand opening will take place Saturday, July 4. Get a free digital photo of your ride.

The zipline will be open seven days per week from 11:00am to 8:00pm.
