We ask you to arrive 20 minutes prior to your designated tour time so you have time to check in, sign your waiver, pay for your adventure, and get geared up! Our experienced guides will outfit you with a safety harness, helmet and gloves. Next, you will watch our safety briefing video. Training for your adventure will include some "how to" information, including how to apply the break and what hand signals to watch for.
Eco Zipline Tours utilizes a proprietary safety breaking system, designed by owner Mike Seper, called the ZipVR. After you learn the basics and watch a demonstration, you will start your adventure on the Voyager cable- approximately 150 feet long, 15 feet high. This is the first line of each of our tours, and an opportunity to learn and become comfortable with the process of safely ziplining. You will always have two tour guides with your group at all times. One guide will always be catching riders at the landing platform and one guide will always be on the sending platform, hooking the rider onto the cable, explaining what to do and sending the rider. This "sending guide" is also there to answer any questions you may have.
After zipling on the first cable, you have arrived at the first platform. You will be clipped to the safety strap then unclipped from the cable. All riders are securely attached at all times when on an elevated platform. When everyone in the group has zipped to the first platform the adventure continues onto the second zipline. “The Easy Rider Tour” zips four cables for a combined distance of over 1000 feet. "The Super Six Tours" zips six cables for a combined distance of 1800 feet. “The High Flyer Tour” zips ten cables for a combined distance of over a mile. If your group has riders in a different comination of tours, you will be zipping together for the first three lines for those on the Easy Rider and first four lines for those on the Super Six. It is at these lines that those tours zip back to the office on their last line(s). The High Flyer tour continues onto the biggest, highest, fastest and most exhilarating cables. The High Flyer Tour features our Super Zip that is over 1200 feet long and 225 feet high!
