There is a daily revision of all systems before starting activities. The facilities have five high platforms with a height approximately 30 feet from the ground and three low platforms at the end of runs. These platforms were designed by master craftsman Hector Alvarez, knowledgeable craftsman of trees, wood and their applications with over 25 years experience and certified by the Economic Development Company. The construction was performed by skilled workers under the supervision of the system’s designer and engineer. Alvarez is also a member of ACCT, the Association for Challenge Course Technology.
The ecological design is one that adapts to the topography and shape of the trees that host it. Basically these platforms add their structure to the strength of the tree, creating a symbiotic relationship which protects the tree from the impact, allowing for long-term use.
A team of five people properly trained in handling systems or certified in First Aid (SFA) and CPR is there to take you through every step of the process. The zip line crew will receive participants on each of the platforms, will help the user to change direction by changing the connection to the other zip line cable and will assure the user is secure for the other zip line travel section.
