Grafton, Illinois – June 22, 2012: Mayor Tom Thompson cut a red ribbon signifying the ‘official’ opening of Grafton Zipline Adventures.  The Zipline first accepted riders on May 5 in what was explained by Jeff Lorton – owner of the enterprise as a soft opening.  Since the soft opening, nearly 1,000 riders have soared through the woods and over a valley that was cut by the Illinoan Glacier about 13,000 years ago.

The Zipline adventure covers 1.75 miles and offers views that were only available to native birds.  New state-of-the-art equipment and thorough attention to safety by the GZA guides makes your adventure in and over the woods a worry free and  unforgettable time.  Call to make reservations so you can be one of those who can say ‘I zipped Grafton’!
