Route 66 Zipline

Field review by the editors.

Williams, Arizona

Route 66 pilgrims, already driving 2,000+ miles on the Mother Road at ground level, pay money to ride above Route 66 along 1,400 feet of zipline. Passengers are slung beneath a miniature 1957 Chevy that hides the cable mechanism and plays 1950s rock 'n' roll -- and the sound of squealing tires -- as they ride. Speed is 30 mph, elevation 110 feet above the pavement. One novel approach: the passengers are strapped into their seats at ground level, hoisted to the zipline, then lowered again at the end of the ride. So it's like you never even get out of your car.

The attraction opened in June 2013 and, although it sounded crazy to us at the time, modern-day Mother Road enthusiasts apparently enjoy the elevated experience. According to the zipline owners, the wait for a ride on busy summer evenings can be up to an hour.
