The Vigilante Zip Rider's name incorporates the historical significance of the Shepherd of the Hills Historic Homestead into this thrilling adventure. In the 1800s, the Ozark Mountains were home to a group of infamous vigilantes known as the Baldknobbers who later played a role in the Shepherd of the Hills story. The ride is named after this group of vigilantes. Don't miss out on the thrill of a lifetime. Reserve your space on the Vigilante Zip Rider today!
