Challenge and High Ropes Course at Tico Time – Durango, CO

Come join us at Tico Time River RV Resort for a breath-taking, heart-pumping, adrenaline-boosting adventure on our challenge and high ropes course! We offer daytime and nighttime options for two different experiences: one for fun in the sun, the other for a cool time in the dark.

Our Zipline Experience

First things first: safety, of course. We start with a quick (but thorough!) 15-minute safety training where we’ll outline all the equipment and how to use the course safely. After that, it’s time to gather up your courage and take on the course!

You’ll start with a super-fun swoop across the Animas River with the lower of our two ziplines, which will get your blood pumping and take you to the rest of the course. Once you’re safely across, you’ll have your choice between braving the 60-foot climbing wall that leads to the summit of Tico Tower… or taking the stairs to the top, your call. Next up? Leap of faith time! Ever done a 60-foot freefall jump off a tower? It’s crazy, fun, and (no worries) safe. Then it’s a Tarzan-swing jump off the second level, which is 40 feet above the ground.

You’ve gotta get back across the river somehow, so we do it in style with an absolutely thrilling 550-foot zipline from the top of that 60-foot tower.

Stay and play at our riverfront resort

After your adventure, stay and hang out! Anyone who books a lesson or tour with us is welcome to use the on-site amenities that day. And by ‘amenities,’ we mean:

A 130-foot waterslide

A beach volleyball court that lights up at night

An 18-hole disc golf course

Sand beaches

. . . and more!
