Meet the Guides: Kelsey Eick

Our guests and guides come to Wolfe Creek Preserve to  visit us from all over the country, and even the world! We’re lucky to have Kelsey because she travelled all the way from Mexico to guide for us (and maybe Mexico’s not as far away as you thought; Kelsey’s actually from Mexico, Missouri). Even though she’s only been here for one season, Kelsey responded “just one?” when we asked her to share what her favorite part was about working for Branson Zipline. Her enthusiasm for the outdoors, our guests, and our world class facility are attributes that make Kelsey such a great guide. She’s also got a great sense of humor, a trait of hers you might pick up on yourself when you read the answers to questions we asked to get to know her better:

1. Do you play any sports or enjoy any outdoor activities? Essentially, if it is outdoors, the probability of me enjoying it is high.
2. When was your first time zip lining? When I was knee-high to a grasshopper.
3. Any fun facts about yourself? It’s all an enigma.
4. Have you zipped anywhere other than at Branson Zipline? That information is classified.
5. What’s your favorite season to zip and why? I tend to be more of a spring chicken.

Kelsey said that one of her favorite quotes is to “say what you mean and mean what you say” so we know she means it when she says she’d describe herself in three words as “curious, curious, curious.” We love Kelsey’s intrinsic sense of curiosity about the world around her and encourage this same wonder in all of our guests who visit our beautiful preserve. With undisturbed flora and fauna to showcase to our guests, there’s plenty to learn about and explore on any of our zipline canopy tours. All of our guides are familiar with the legendary history of this property and possess a cursory knowledge of the area’s ecology.

Even if you’ve never zipped before, there’s no better place to start! With our Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) – accredited, highly trained guides and a zip line course that surpasses all safety requirements, we feel confident that you’ll enjoy your time on any of our world class tours! Plus, we asked Kelsey what advice she’d give to people zip lining for the first time and she responded “it ain’t no thang.” Be sure to make your reservations for one of our eco-adventures today before spots run out!
