What is a zip line?
A zip line is a cable reaching between two fixed points that a participant zips across with a trolley resting on the cable.  Instead of zipping tree to tree, we chose to build fixed structures and towers to protect the health of the trees.

What if I’ve never gone zip lining before?
Don’t worry; you’ll fit right in with most other participants!  Our experienced and patient guides will happily facilitate your experience to make you as comfortable as possible.

What restrictions do you have around age/weight/health?
Participants must weigh between 60 and 300 pounds (27 and 136 kilograms) and be able to complete a moderate hike on a hilly terrain (approximately ½ mile total).  The zip line tour is not recommended for people with neck or back injuries.  People with other medical conditions should check with their doctor before participating.  Pregnant women cannot participate in the zip line tour.  High Life Adventures has the right to cancel your tour if we are concerned about your physical well being.  Participants under the age of 18 must have a parent or legal guardian sign their Participant Agreement Form.  Youth age 15 and under must be accompanied by a guardian on the tour.

Do I need a signed agreement form?
Yes! In order to participate, each person must sign a Participant Agreement Form.  Adventure activities involve hazards and risks which are outlined in our Participant Agreement Form.  Below is a link to this form that each person participating or visiting the property will need to fill out and sign.  Those under the age of 18 will need a parent/guardian signature.  Participants 15 and under must be accompanied by a guardian on the tour.

How many people are in a tour group?
Tour groups consist of two guides and up to 12 participants.  Companies, families, or other large groups with more than 12 participants will be divided into multiple groups.

How long does the tour take?
The tour time varies depending on the number of participants and can take anywhere from one to 2.5 hours. High Life Adventures cannot guarantee a specific ending time.

How high off the ground will I be?
Participants will be between 15 and 75 feet above the ground.  Each individual zip line is different.

How does the braking system work?
Our zip lines have a guide-operated braking system, adjustable for each participant to ensure a smooth landing.  As a participant you get to sit back and enjoy the ride, no braking required.

What equipment do we use for the tour?
Each participant will be provided with a harness that goes over the shoulders, around the waist, and around the legs at mid-thigh. You will also have your own zip trolley, lanyard, and helmet. We provide all of this equipment on site.

What should I bring/wear?
Please wear comfortable clothing that will cover the areas that come in contact with the harness: shoulders, waist, and mid-thigh.  Participants must wear sturdy closed-toe shoes secured by laces or straps.  Please tie back long hair and remove dangling jewelry prior to zipping.  Cameras are welcome, however, you are solely responsible for its transport and condition.  High Life Adventures is not responsible for any lost or stolen belongings.

How safe is this?
The construction and operation of our zip line course meets or surpasses the Association for Challenge Course Technology’s (ACCT) standards.  Our guides have gone through extensive training and perform daily inspections of the course and all equipment.
