So safe, even kids can do it. Ozark Mountain Zipline tours are a great family activity in Eureka Springs.
Imagine the thrill of zipping through the canopies of the Ozark Mountains. A sturdy line of cable suspends you from 20 to more than 300 feet above the valley. You can do more than imagine it. Sign up for this extreme adventure in Eureka Springs. Will Wall and his wife Kendra opened Ozark Mountain Ziplines in Eureka Springs in March of 2013 and oversee zip line tours for families, couples and groups.
The course was designed and built by Universal Zipline Technology, a leader in the zip line industry and is inspected daily. “Zip lining is considered an extreme sport so there is a lot attention given to safety and there are redundancies built into every element,” Will reassures. After being fitted into a helmet and safety harness, you board a shuttle and ride out to the course. Highly trained guides accompany you through your treetop adventure introducing you to breathtaking views of the Ozark Mountains.
Ziplines range in length from just 120 feet to 2000 feet between suspended platforms built in the treetops. No experience is necessary and children as young as 3 years of age can actually take the tour. Tours typically include groups of 10 and there are some requirements which can be found on the Ozark Mountain Zipline website. Tours are 2 hours.

Eureka Springs is known as a tourist destination. It’s a funky mountain town with many fun surprises. It is here, nestled in the Ozark Mountains that a monkey will befriend 34 tigers on March 13, 2013. Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge is a nationally acclaimed sanctuary for abandoned exotic animals and has recently undertaken a challenging project to make it home for 34 more large cats currently living in Mountainburg County. With over 100 big cats already living at TCWR, the need for additional housing/cages for the new rescues is now an emergency. Here is where a six pound monkey enters the story.
Frankie, a talented Capuchin monkey, wants to help the Tigers!
Intrigue Theater, now in its third season in Eureka Springs, will welcome Frankie to the stage on March 13th for a fundraising show. Door profits from the show on Saturday March 13th at 8 p.m. will go directly to Turpentine Creek to help secure housing for the 34 big cats from Mountainburg County.

Colorful beads, flying feathers and unmitigated fun…Louisiana’s northern neighbor likes to party too and a small Victorian town in the Ozarks celebrates Mardi Gras like no other.
Eureka Gras began with a New Orleans native, Dan Ellis seven years ago. To date, Mardi Gras is one of the biggest and certainly one of the most flamboyant festivals in Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The Krewe of Krazo (that’s OZARK spelled backwards) welcomes locals and visitors alike to “let the good times roll”. Don’t miss these crazy activities running January-February.
1. Catch some beads thrown by costumed riders of fantastical floats as they wind down Spring Street in downtown Eureka Springs. There are two Mardi Gras parades, one night parade and one during the day.
2. Dance with royalty at one of the Mardi Gras balls held around town. Many of them are private so an invitation would be required but look for overnight packages that include tickets or get tickets to the famous Beaux Arts Ball which is open to the public. Don’t worry if you cannot find a ticket. The Mardi Gras spirit spills over into the streets. Swing some beads as you stroll to one of many quaint bars and independently owned restaurants around town.
3. Dress up your furry friend and march with the Krewe of Barkus in the main parade. This year’s theme is Go Gangnam! Get costume ideas and see the official poster or contact Rachel Brix at Percy’s Grooming & Pet Spa for more info on the pet parade.
4. Join some Freakin Eurekans on the Krazo 2nd Line Krawl then roll out of bed for the Sunday Jazz Brunch.
