Who Can Zip FAQ for Zip Isle Zip Line

Who Can Zip?

Q: Do you have to be athletic to zip?

A: No, anyone who feels fit enough can do it. We have had guests with one arm, one leg, no arms, and severe muscular dystrophy. Since our guides do most of the work of hooking you up and stopping you at the other end, you can just sit back in your harness and look at the scenery as you ride if you want. Or you can twirl around or try to go as fast as you can. But you cannot hang upside down!

If you are pregnant or have back injuries or another medical condition, we suggest that you ask your doctor's opinion before scheduling a zip line tour.

Q: How old do you have to be to ride the zip lines?

A: To date, we have had riders as young as 2 and as old as 90. For children under 10, a supervisor's approval is required. Participants under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to accompany the minor and sign their waiver form.

Q: What are the weight requirements?

A: You must weigh between 35 and 275 pounds. If you are close to those limits, you may be able to ride with a supervisor's permission. Under 70 pounds will be required to ride tandem and will only ride with supervisor approval.

Q: Are there any other restrictions?

A: Individuals who appear to be impaired due to use of alcohol or drugs will not be allowed to participate and will forfeit their payment.
