Imagine launching yourself from the limestone cliffs and soaring 200-feet across a zipline with the river 80-feet below.

Previously run only for corporate groups or special events, now, with the launch of SkyRider, everyone can experience the rush of zipping over the Elora Gorge. Just minutes from downtown, the deck is located behind the Elora Community Centre and finishes at Victoria Park with Lover’s Leap Lookout just a few steps away.

 

Frederick Schuett’s desire to live life on the edge—literally, as it turns out—has created adventures that challenge participants to push through their fears. Launched in 2001, the ONE AXE name speaks to Frederick’s character: on his first mountaineering adventure, he commented to his instructor that the icy slope wasn’t much of a challenge. The instructor took away one of his axes. Unknowingly, he created ONE AXE Fred.

Partner Christa Niravong handles the business end of the fun, while Fred instructs and leads the professionals who teach the thrill-seekers. And there are lots of opportunities. The Amazing Elora Race is a popular team-building program where corporate teams work together to find clues around town, with the zipline as an add-on. You can learn to rappel off the cliffs like a human spider, or participate in a full-day ziplining adventure by registering in advance. And now, SkyRider gives everyone a chance to zipline across the Gorge without pre-booking. Thrills on demand.
