Business Overview:

Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour is a 100% tree-based zipline park located on 83 acres of wooded land in the heart of the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois. This is a unique opportunity to acquire a highly popular and profitable zipline business and take it to the next level. The business is being offered for sale on a completely
turnkey basis including all assets, operating permits, and future booked reservations.

The three-hour canopy tour includes eight ziplines, three aerial/high suspension foot bridges and three short hikes -- providing an exciting way to experience the flora, fauna and history of the Southern Illinois' outdoors. The diverse terrain boasts several rock bluffs, wildflower meadows, and a large bouldered creek running through the center of the property. The course was designed with an eco-friendly focus and without the use of any man-made towers or cement. The property offers an excellent opportunity for the right buyer to increase sales and market share by expanding the current park and building a collection of treehouses or cabins -- much of the land is currently undeveloped and local demand for short-term rental properties is at an all-time high.

Since its founding 10 years ago, Shawnee Bluffs Canopy Tour has consistently been voted one of the area’s best activities and attracted visitors from all over the world.
The property is privately held and the owners are representing themselves in this transaction, so they are able to negotiate sales terms and conditions to meet individual buyer needs. Site visits to the property are encouraged.

***Qualified Buyers Only Please***
Prior to receipt of any financial or other company information, all potential buyers must sign a non-disclosure agreement and provide a letter from their financial
institution or accountant that shows they have the funds required to purchase the business.
