*We ask all guests who ride the zip lines to sign a release and pass a very basic ropes course, or else demonstrate commendable ability to our guides-
once approved, follows a little orientation as shown in stills below, where instructors first show how to get on to, and then back off of the line when the run is over.
below that is a gallery of stills you might enjoy to get a feel for the place...
