How does a zip wire work?

A zip wire is simply a cable that you can glide along using two handles. These cables are attached to either high up trees or towers. When we say ‘glide’ we mean that it’s possible to travel very quickly and precisely along the wire, although it should be noted that this is not like bungee jumping as there is no bouncing involved.

What are zip wires used for?

Zip wires have been around for thousands of years, but they have only recently started to become a keenly sought-after activity. In the past few decades, people have realised that ziplining is an awesome way to get from A to B quickly and in a fun manner.

People who go zip lining are often interested in trying something a bit different – something which will give them a thrill while still being an activity that they enjoy. Zip wires are becoming increasingly popular as a result of this, and people who have participated in zip lining say that it is one of the most exciting adventures they have ever undertaken.

Do heavier people go faster on zip wires?

In short, no. In fact, people of all shapes and sizes can enjoy zip lines as long as their weight falls within the required limits for a particular line. People within a certain limit go at a similar speed to one another – zip lines are not something that favours fitter people over less-fit friends

Are zip wires safe?

Ziplines are certainly seen as being safe. The materials used in zip lines are specifically chosen for their strength and flexibility – your safety is, of course, very important to us!

Do I need previous experience to go ziplining?

No experience is necessary to have an awesome time on a zipline! Many people who partake in zip lining are complete novices, but even experts in adventure sports won’t find themselves out of their depth.

Can I go ziplining with my family?

Yes, you can! Ziplines are suitable for all ages and abilities, including kids. If your children are old enough to grasp the concept of holding onto the handles while they zip along, then there is nothing stopping them from having a great time on our courses.

How long does it take to fully complete a course?

The length of time it takes to get through a standard line depends on how fast you move along the wire – it varies from around 30 seconds to three minutes for an average person. Of course, this doesn’t include getting changed into safety gear or waiting for others to finish.

How high up am I on a zip wire?

This will depend on the specific location that you visit, but more often than not, you will be around 50 feet off the ground at most. Of course, this distance is relative to your starting point – some lines are more of a downward slope than an upward one!

Can I do ziplining if I suffer from vertigo?

Vertigo can affect anyone and there is no reason why you shouldn’t try your best on our courses. If you’re worried about feeling sick or getting dizzy then it would be advisable for you to take medication beforehand. Our guides are always available at our sites to help maintain peace of mind, so don’t hesitate to talk with them if you have any concerns at all!

Do I need to be fit to go ziplining?

Not at all. Our courses are designed for people of all shapes and sizes – even those who are less active or have long-term injuries could still enjoy an awesome zip line experience without being worried about their fitness levels.
