What is a zipline Canopy Tour?
A Zip Line Canopy Tour is a series of cables and platforms that take you on an exhilarating tour through forests and wildlife. Canopy Tours were originally created to study different plant life and trees. Now it has become much more about the exciting “ziplining” experience. However, we still try and show the forest and wildlife from a perspective you’ll never forget!
Is ziplining safe?
Your safety is our top priority. Each zipline tour is facilitated by at least two tour guides who have been through extensive training. They will take care of every safety-related detail on the course, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the rides. Our courses are registered with the PA Department of Agriculture Rides and Measurements Bureau, and they meet/exceed the design standards of ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology). One of our guides does a daily “run-through inspection,” a state-certified inspector does a monthly inspection, and once a year, a certified third-party inspector does an inspection. Our Aerial Excursion course uses a brake design system that the industry recognizes as the safest approach to braking. Each line is “dialed in” to allow gravity to work as a natural brake. Each line also has a “backup” brake mechanism controlled by our staff, so the participant does not need to worry about slowing themselves down. We use a patented braking/retrieval system called a ZIPKea on each line on our Aerial Excursion Tour, which has longer, faster zip lines.
Should we tip the tour guides?
There is no tipping expected. There will be at least two guides with your group for the duration of the event, and you can expect that they will be highly professional and safety conscious. They will take good care of your group through the experience, whether you tip them or not!
What physical condition should I be in to participate?
Participants do need to be reasonably fit to participate by the nature of the event. Please see the Activities Release and Waiver Form for more details on this. Still, in general, participants should be able to carry 20-30 lbs of weight without difficulty, climb a flight of stairs, stand without assistance, walk over uneven terrain up and down a moderate slope.
