Ride a zipline at Monkey Trunks

Written by: Aimsel Ponti
Zipline Monkey Trunks

If you’re not afraid of heights and love a good adrenaline rush, we’ve got just the place for you. Monkey Trunks Zipline Park in Saco (and there’s one in Wells, too) offers zipline tours in the woods around Cascade Falls. And if that’s not enough of a rush for you, try your hand at its adventure course. On it, you can race your friend on dual 700-foot ziplines, scream your head off riding a 35-foot giant swing, ascend a 45-foot climbing wall and pretend you’re on “Survivor” with swinging beams, tightropes, rolling logs and other challenges.
