Look up. Climb the tree using the large staples, while still hugging it closely. Get hooked in to the zip line. The first step is a doozy! Whoooosh!!!
Campers climb up a tall tree to the starting platform. Of course, they are always protected by a staff member who actively supports them with climbing rope. Once there, they are instructed about the zip line, hooked in, double checked, and then away they go! Our 250 foot zip line runs through the trees, and it is a thrilling ride and confidence booster.
Some people add to the fun by going upside down, backwards, in costume, and/or with extra-special-tactical operations in flight.
