Zip, zip.. hooray? Two zip line businesses up for sale


A pair of Idaho zip line businesses are up for sale.

Zip line adventure tours have grown in popularity in recent years – catering to tourists who want to hook onto a cable line and glide over trees, lakes, streams and more.

In Idaho, not one but two zip line companies are for sale.

Zip Idaho, which operates near Horseshoe Bend, is hoping for a buyer for the business. Founded in 2007, Zip Idaho hopes to sell for $89,999. It says it cleared $320,000 in gross revenue, with $100,00 in cash flow. The listing says the owner is retiring. The price does not include the land – which would be leased separately for 8% of gross revenue, according to the listing.

“(We have) tree based zip lines and swinging bridges to our loooong faaaast ground-based zip lines and side by side racing lines,” the listing says. “Most recently we have been running the 3 line tour with only the longest and fastest lines available.”

Further north, in Valley County, Zip Idaho is also listed for sale. The owner is seeking $1.2 million, and reports gross revenue of $225,000. Zip McCall operates on 600 acres leased from the Idaho Department of Lands, with a 16-year lease.

“Complete with storage containers, equipment, UTV, solar system for off grid operations, 4 successful seasons under our belt and still growing each year! Realizing a 60-62% net profit margin,” the listing says. “This tour is all the talk of the town and folks travel from the East Coast just to do this tour!”
