ZIPLINING Q & A

YOU PICK! RACE YOUR FRIEND OR ENJOY THE VIEW

What are the Dual Racing Ziplines?

A thrill ride down a 3,000 + ft long, 3/4” galvanized steel cable!!! Participants will be fitted in a Bonsai Full Body Harness and safety helmet. The harness is attached to a Bonsai racing trolley. While zipping above the mountain’s treetops, view the Delaware River to the left of you and the campground below.

I’ve never done this before what should I expect?

Prior to departure to the launch tower participants are given a safety briefing and short “ground school” session. Your entire experience will last about 40-45 minutes. Depending on your weight, the wind, and other factors, actual zipping time will be about 1-2 minutes. The Dual Racing Ziplines start at the top of our mountain at the launch tower and end near the campground store at the landing tower.

Is it safe?  What are the physical requirements?

Our racing ziplines are built with state of the art safety equipment. Our guides and operations adhere to the Association for Challenge Course Technology standards. Due to the nature of this activity there is risk involved. Please understand you must be in adequate physical condition to zip. Participants must be able to walk up and down steps on our zip towers, perform proper braking position, steer themselves, and listen while complying with instruction given. Participants must be comfortable with zipline guides fitting them with their harness, which requires close interaction.
Alcohol, prescription and non-prescription drugs, of any type may impair your judgment!
You must be between 60-250 lbs to zip.

What if I weigh…under 60 or over 250 lbs can I go? Am I going to be weighed?

If you do not weigh between 60-250 lbs, you cannot zip. The release form signed by each participant states you are between 60 and 250 lbs. Participants who look close to weight requirements or are unaware of their weight, may be weighed for verification.

What should I bring?

  • Any medication you would need in a moment’s notice.
  • Appropriate dress for current weather conditions. (No baggy clothing items such as scarves and no dangling jewelry)
  • Closed-toed shoes or strapped footwear required.(No flip-flops)
  • Eye protection is recommended. Bring sunglasses. Bring ski/snowboard goggles in colder temperatures. Especially if you race, mascara will run and eyes will tear!!
  • Feel free to bring your GoPro or any camera to record you ride, we recommend it has a strap or clamp. You may want to record your second zip, so you can get the feel of what to expect first.

Do I need a reservation?

To ensure the best experience for the participant, reservations are encouraged. Based on guide availability we will do our best to accommodate you if you arrive with no reservation. Reservations are booked on the half hour.
