FAQ - Difference between a regular and a canopy zipline?


What is the difference between a regular zip line and a canopy zip line?

Answer

The normal zipline course and the canopy zipline courses are quite different. Typically your normal zipline will traverse a large canyon or gulch and can often be hundreds of feet in the air. The canopy ziplines are located in the treetops and you zip from one tree platform to another. The highest you will be in the air on these courses is usually about 80' or so and the runs themselves are usually quite shorter. As for excitement though, they are both equal and both are tons of fun. The canopy zipline tours also usually include rope bridges and rope obstacles and even rope courses which are used to build confidence and team building.
