Summer has arrived, and with it comes a season of long days and warm evenings, perfect for exploring. As ziplining continues to surge in popularity and more and more courses crop up around the country, it makes sense that operators are upping the ante on the rush you get from ziplining in broad daylight and changing it up a little with ziplines at night. From full-moon zips in the dark night sky to evening courses that take place as the sun is setting, here are five locations where you can zipline at night this summer.

Margarita Adventures

Getting to sip California wines and zip through the vines is cool enough but, now, visitors can zip through wine country in Paso Robles, California, on Friday nights with Margarita Adventures, which just launched its seasonal Night Zipline Tour, available now through Sept. 16.

Visitors ride along six ziplines that span more than 7,500 combined feet as the sun is setting and the stars begin to shine.

New York Zipline Canopy Tours

Fly through the forest with New York Zipline Canopy Tours in Hunter, New York,  at Hunter Mountain Ski Bowl. Their night zipping programs include everything from the mid-mountain tour and is a family adventure tour guided by the moonlight. It includes six ziplines, four suspension bridges, nine illuminated tree platforms and a 65-foot, after-dark rappel at the end. Stop to stargaze and keep an eye out for nocturnal animals in the woods as you soar over the longest stretch of line, 650-feet long.

Hocking Hills Canopy Tours

The Night Flight at Hocking Hills Canopy Tours in Rockbridge, Ohio, offers full-moon tours on select nights throughout the summer. Visitors will experience the sounds, the smells and the creatures of Ohio’s summer nights as they zip off into the blackness. The “moonshine” tour includes six ziplines and four skybridges.

Lake Travis Zipline Adventures

The Night Flight at Texas' Lake Travis Zipline Adventures is a three-hour tour that zips across canyons and Lake Travis inlets in the moonlight. There are five zips, ranging in length from 250 to 2,800. The grand finale – at night – is a launch off of a cliff that is 20 stories high and guests soar over the beautiful lake by moonlight.
