Take an exhilarating ride over The Shepherd of the Hills on the new thrill ride the Vigilante Zip Rider in Branson as you launch off the open air deck of the Inspiration Tower and experience the thrill of the downhill zip ride over the 160 acre homestead of The Shepherd of the Hills.
Riders will blast along at over 50 miles per hour as you travel a half mile course. The patented Zip Rider controls your speed with a special braking system, so just hang on and enjoy the thrill and excitement. Riders are seated over the exhilarating journey leaving them free to enjoy the ride.
Travel up the glass elevators to the enclosed area of the tower observation deck. From there it is just a few steps to the launching point. Start off at the top of Inspiration Tower at an elevation of 230 feet and descend rapidly as you enjoy the spectacular view and the sensation of speed. The Vigilante Zip Rider's name goes back to the 1800s, when the famous Baldknobbers, a group of Ozark vigilantes, made their way into history in the Shepherd of the Hills area.
