Flying Bear Ziplines

Lots of nervous energy, but we survived. It’s a great experience. The cables are about 400-500 feet long. We took on the 3 line tour with a great view of the big bear lake. Gorgeous day. I think it was a great way to celebrate my son’s birthday. Next year, we told him we would take him Flying in a Glider plane. Now that he’s old enough.

Shtinkykat, definitely a go. Although, if its on your bucket list I heard the Costa Rica Zip Line Tours are like a mile long. And if you want something globally closer there is Puerto Vallarta’s Zip Tours. Definitely a must. Hopefully your not too afraid of heights because its quite high off the ground. πŸ™‚

    Wha?!?! I thought you had to go to Costa Rica to zip line! Sweet lawd. Thanks so much for sharing this. I am amazed each day to learn what CA has to offer.

      I definitely am going to try making it to Mexico for ziplining. Although, Costa Rica would be the ultimate. Can you imagine zipping for over 1/2 mile? Would love it! And so would you. Give it a try.

      The place is right next to Big Bear Village. So its nice to beable to go for lunch & shop afterwards. Make sure to visit Alpine Village @ Magic Mountain and take a taboggan ride down the mountainside, too. Makes you feel like a kid again! πŸ™‚

    Cool video! I’m actually surprised at how loud the zip line is! Hee hee. Zip lining in Costa Rica definitely sounds awesome, but it’s good to know I can do it locally too.

    Oh my gosh! That looks terrifying, but … so fun! Questions: How much did it cost per person, and how much did you have to use your hands to hang on? My arthritis is mostly in my hands so I really want to do it, but not sure if it’d be a great idea.

      Flying Bear Ziplines $65 for 3 lines and $85 for the full 5. You would be perfectly fine to zip even with your arthritis (I have it, too. Especially in raining weather like today. Did u know it suppose to be 80 degrees and sunny tomorrow?). You are basically strapped and sitting in a harness, clipped to the cable. The only thing you have to use your hand for is to brake, but that doesn’t take much. The advantage, 2 of the lines don’t even require you to break. So, its perfect!

      Then you head over to Alpine slide @ Magic Mountain and taboggan down 1 time. Next you hit the Village @ Big Bear (they are all right next to eachother) to eat and shop. Would make for a perfect day!

      It’s totally fun. And yes, I had a bunch of nervous energy. Proof: I freaked out on my first breaking. So, I let go and ran into my instructor who leaped to catch me. lol. At the end, I let go of the cable to soon as he was releasing me and it flung the pully to the ground. Would of really hurt if it landed on our head. See. So if I can do it…so can U! definitely sure about it. πŸ™‚
