CASTLE ROCK, Colo. — Three people, including two children at or under the age of 10, were taken to a hospital with injuries after being involved in a zipline collision at a park in Castle Rock.

According to Castle Rock Fire and Rescue, a collision happened just after 6 p.m. on a zipline at Philip S. Miller Park off of Plum Creek Parkway west of I-25.

The adult and one of the children were in critical condition Sunday night, according to CRFR. On Monday however, The EDGE, the company that operates the zipline park, told Denver7 both were released from the hospital with no major injuries. The company said any reports of people in critical condition were "grossly exaggerated."

When medics arrived at the scene, the three people involved were no longer on the zipline and were on a platform of the zipline park.

No other details on the circumstances that led to the collision were immediately provided. The EDGE referred to it only as "an incident."

The EDGE – formerly Castle Rock Adventure Park – has operated zipline tours at Philip S. Miller Park since 2015. According to its website, the park contains 10 ziplines that span more than two total miles and stand as high as 110 feet off the ground.

Participants can reach speeds up to 50 mph, according to the site.
