Corey is a retired firefighter, Navy veteran, project manager, and former raft guide. Fleeing "death by cubicle" Corey joined the fire service and never looked back at the corporate world. Corey enjoys writing and when it rains you can find Corey chasing whitewater in the Ozarks (after dropping a jewel-like aqua green waterfall on one of the Ozarks many isolated creeks, looking back it's as if the waterfall gives your eyes a thousand tiny hugs) excerpt from an adrenaline fueled writing session after kayaking Baker Creek in south Arkansas. When Corey isn't on a river he strives to be your favorite Cable Ape.
Hello! I am Jonathan Teigen, master of the ziplining arts. I was zipping for 6 years full time, until I went away to open a restaurant. Upon running that for almost a year, I realized that was not my dream after all; therefore, naturally I went into the insurance business. I do that full time while ziplining with you fun people on the weekends. I am an avid outdoorsman, partaking in mountain biking, road cycling, waterskiing, kayaking, hiking, and everything in between. Come ride the lines with me, and I promise we will have a great time together!Though.... some may tire of my perfectly constructed dad jokes. Well.... I guess it is time to "zip" this up!
Greetings friends! Peter grew up on rural land outside of Washington DC. He spent most of his childhood barefoot in the woods, riding horses and partaking in any sport he could. Peter graduated with a degree in Biology, then was accepted to earn his Masters in physician assistant in Manhattan. But, by being the wild man he is, the concrete jungle was no match for this smiley Tarzan! He started traveling and never looked back. He's spent over 2 years exploring 14 countries, surfing his way up the coast of south and central America, and explored Asia on a motorcycle. Prior to moving to Eureka he spent winters training alaskan huskies and guiding dog mushing tours in Northwest Colorado. He's eager to make your day better with his positivity and safety! When Peter drove through town he knew this was where his roots will grow. He's very grateful for this community and the crew at Eureka Springs Zipline!
After spending 20+ years in the corporate world, Ariell quit her day job in January 2020 to pursue freelance work, and in 2023, after selling almost all of her belongings to spend 2.5 years as a full-time traveler, Ariell became a resident of Eureka Springs. When she is not zipping through the trees off Highway 23, she spends her time working as a professional proofreader, editor, and content creator, studying for her undergrad in public relations, petsitting locally, as well as in St Louis and Kansas City, and runway modeling. She also loves exploring new places, hosting big dinner parties, making music and art, and attending hot yoga. As an enthusiastic lover of all things summer, her favorite part of being a zipline instructor is spending her days outside facilitating fun and positive new experiences for ESZ’s amazing guests.
“I am so happy to be here and feel so grateful to be a part of the team at ESZ,” Ariell said. “ESZ and Eureka Springs have welcomed me in such amazing ways, and I can’t wait to help other travelers experience the kind of warmth, support, and fun I have been shown since putting down roots again. In my opinion, fellow travelers couldn’t have picked a better place to experience the beauty of the Ozarks.”
