Tip #1: Pay attention!

Listening to your guide will ease your worries and make you feel comfortable and prepared before you zip-away on your first ride. Directions will vary from where to place your hands to how to land safely. Being attentive will ease your worries and make sure that you have a safe and fun experience.

Tip #2: Wear all safety gear.

Seriously, everyone looks goofy in those helmets. Go with the flow and be prepared to don helmets, gloves, goggles and even knee pads. Don’t worry about how you look and instead be happy to have this experience!

Tip #3: Appropriate clothing is a must.

Wear sneakers or strap-on sandals – no flip flops or shoes that are easily lost! When you’re flying through the air we promise that the least of your concerns will be your shoes. Also, go with form-fitting clothing to ensure that your harness is properly fitted.

Tip #4: Tie back long hair.

The last thing you want is to get your hair snarled in the wheels of the zipline while you’re zipping through the trees. Bring at least two hair bands (one for yourself and an extra if it breaks) and consider a couple for other people in your group who may forget. You will still feel the wind in your hair, don’t worry!

Tip #5: Have fun!

Remember this is a once in a lifetime experience that is supposed to be fun and exciting. Be ready for whatever comes your way, be attentive and safe and enjoy your adventure through the treetops!
