The ride is easily accessible by staircase which meets OSHA and ASTM requirements. At the top of the stairs the rider is protected from fall exposure until they are safely connected to the zip line. The rider is able to step off the platform only after the operator moves the Rotating Safety Gate to the open position.
We have developed a patent-pending device called the Auto-Retract® that slows only the last portion of the ride. It is a mechanized device that replaces the old method of stopping zip line riders by hand. It also returns the trolley to the top of the zip line, hence the name “Auto-Retract®.” This innovative brake technology solves one of the most dangerous aspects of zip lines – the stop.
The Mobile Zip Line is easy to setup. Our 12 volt hydraulic lift system stands the tower into place at the touch of a button. Zip lines are secured to vehicles and the inflatable walls are positioned as backup stop devices. Setup time is around 30 minutes.
