TreeHouse Ziplines

Tarzan Swing Description

Tarzan Swing detailed description:
~After you get suited into the proper gear, our guides will hook, double hook, and triple hook you onto a large rope. You will be given two handles which will pull you backwards and up 50 ft to a nearby tree. Once our guides give the command, you will let go of the handles and hurdle towards the ground at approx 40 mph. You will be experiencing about 3 G's of force by the time you hit the end of your rope. You will then swing out off of the hillside taking you about 65 ft off of the ground. Once you come to a stop at end you will have the chance to swing a second time.

Tree Ascent

Tree Ascent detailed description:
~After getting geared up, you will take a short walk across the meadow to our Test line. Once at the Test line, our guides will explain the few rules for ziplining and instruct everyone individually on proper techniques for steering, braking, and dismounting from the cable. They will then send you down the 101 linear foot cable, where you will dismount on the ground (PTG). After you receive the guide's instructions, you will ascend 62 feet, using a Double Rope Technique (DRT) ascender. You will climb up to the Logan's Way platform and cable. From here, you will zip the 660 linear feet and land on a platform (PTP). The guides will then instruct you on how to rappel yourself off of the platform, taking you down 55 feet. This ends your tree climb and zipline activity.
