Safety is our top priority. Our guides fit you with state-of-the-art equipment and safety information is reviewed prior to each zipline tour. Zipline guides have trained extensively in the proper techniques and procedures of safety. Each piece of equipment and lines are inspected daily. Our guides will ensure your safety while you have fun!  Each guest can fly relaxed, knowing that they are connected with two attachment points on each zipline. Our ziplines are designed to use a gravity braking system complemented by an arrester system used by our guides. This means it's hands-free and worry-free fun for your enjoyment!
