Zip Lining FAQs

Is Zip Lining a Safe Family Activity?

It might surprise you, but ziplining is a great, safe, family activity. Trained guides start each session with a safety lesson designed to teach you how your equipment works.

One of the safety precautions zip line companies takes is making sure equipment properly fits each guest. Height and weight restrictions are in effect for this reason. Please pay attention to the restrictions at your destination when booking a ziplining package.

Of course, there is risk associated with this type of activity so please follow all safety guidelines and use your best judgement.

How Old Do You Have to Be to Go Ziplining in Michigan?

The age limit for zip lining in Michigan varies by attraction. Some ziplines have a minimum age while others have a minimum weight. A minimum weight requirement ensures that your child will be able to complete the zipline without losing momentum.

Parents are the best judge of a child’s comfort-level when it comes to heights and extreme sports.

Be sure to check your destination’s requirements (conveniently listed below) before heading out.

What Should I Wear When I Go Ziplining?

Different destinations might have specific requirements, but in general these are the things to consider when preparing for a ziplining experience:

  • Dress for the weather. Ziplines are most often outdoors. Many will close due to inclimate weather, but sun, heat, cold temperatures, or breezy conditions might meet you on your adventure day. Dress in layers.
  • The ziplining company will provide all safety gear. Don’t worry about bringing your own -they likely won’t let you use it.
  • The harness will go over your clothes. You step into the harness and pull it up just like a pair of shorts, with the straps resting at the top of your legs. Wear comfortable pants, long shorts, or leggings, so that the harness straps won’t be on bare flesh and dig into your skin.
  • You’ll be wearing a helmet. Plan hairstyles and headwear accordingly.
  • Close-toed shoes are a must. No sandals, flip-flops, etc. Choose shoes that will be secure on your feet while you whiz down the line.

How Long Does It Take to Go Zip Lining in Michigan?

Zipline experiences range from a few minutes to a few hours.

The length of time you are zip lining depends on the number of zip lines in your tour or the specific package you book.

Do I Need to Make Reservations to Go Zip Lining in Michigan?

Most ziplining facilities encourage reservations. Some places sell out regularly, so reservations are the only way to go.

Making a reservation is highly encouraged whenever possible.
