This thrill seeking adventure got it’s name from the Baldknobbers, a group of vigilantes who were known around the Ozark Mountains in the late 1800s and play a huge role in the story of The Shepherd of the Hills, where the zipline is located. The Vigilante ZipRider is the first ever to launch from an already existing tower which creates a unique experience for visitors. To begin your launch you must first ride the glass elevators up to the observation deck of Inspiration Tower. From there you will go out to the open observation deck where you'll not only launch from, but you’ll also get a scenic panoramic view of Missouri's Ozark Mountains and you can sometimes even see all the way into Arkansas. You’re guaranteed you won’t find this anywhere else in Branson. The Vigilante ZipRider is a 1/2 mile long and crosses over the top of the 160 acres of Shepherd of the Hills at a speed of 50 mph.
