Mega Zip Line

300 metre zip line at Outdoor Elements Simonstone


What is the MEGA Zip Line?

A zip line is a rope running down hill on which a person can ride by attaching a zip trolley. Our MEGA zip line starts from a platform 20 feet/ 7 metres up a tree which is accessed by climbing a wobbly rope ladder. From there the zip line extends 360 feet/ 120 metres across a ravine through the woodland canopy to a tree at the far end. Gravity slows the rider down at the far end as the zip line ends by running uphill. The rider will then slide back to the middle of the zip line and eventually come to a stop 30 feet/ 10 metres above the woodland floor. The rider now with the help of the instructor below is lowered back to the ground on a rope system.

Our MEGA zip line will leave you buzzing with adrenalin and an experience to be remembered for a long time. A unique way to view the woodland environment.

Suitable for age 8 to adult.
