ZIPLINE & CANOPY TOURS
What is a Zipline/Canopy Tour?
Zip Lines and Zip Line Canopy Tours are said to have originated centuries ago as a mode of transportation. Temple Jacks are known to have zipped from the tops of cathedrals to carry their gear and Australian solders are said to have zipped across canyons to flee the enemy. Today the United States are experiencing a boom of the industry and instead of a Zip Line being at the top of a Bucket List, it is becoming a weekend hobby. Single zip lines at summer camps have evolved into Commercial Zip Line Tours creating a 3 hour experience with multiple lines and even some suspension bridges. Typically, Zip Line Tours contain two guides and a group of 8 – 12 participants and the tour moves as a group.
