Sky Tours Zipline at YMCA Union Park Camp in Dubuque Iowa

News articles


The interest in Sky Tours by the media and the public alike has been building since the zipline opened in May 2011. General Manager of Sky Tours Zipline Kevin Hougham:


"We thought the unusual mix of history, nature, and adventure would be a compelling attraction and it is. Add the enticement of Sky Tours' location, Dubuque on the beautiful Mississippi, and it's truly a winning combination."


Beginning in early 2011, the Sky Tours Zipline Experience has been covered — both locally and state-wide — on paper, on the web, and on television. For more information about Sky Tours Zipline, click on any of the titles below for articles, stories, features, and video.

With last year's feature articles in a number of state-wide publications, many outdoor enthusiasts were introduced to Iowa's premier zipline adventure. This year, we're building on that interest. The ad below appeared in The Iowan (March/April 2013 issue) with our new slogan:

"See Iowa in a Whole New Flight!"

We look forward to welcoming back returning friends, who want to experience Sky Tours again, as well as introducing new friends to the zipline adventure experience!
