New Mobile Zip Line to be launched.
Already proving a major success in the US, the new attraction is manufactured by Spectrum Sports International and will be distributed in the UK and Europe. The new attraction, which was the recipient of the Best New Product Award at last November's IAAPA Attractions Expo, is the first commercially available portable zip line. Access is via a 30in-wide staircase which meets OSHA and ASTM requirements and takes participants to a height of 8.3m (28ft).At the top of the stairs, riders enter the launch barrel which protects them from fall exposure until they are safely connected to the zip line. At the opposite end of the attraction, an innovative, patent pending brake technology called the Auto-Retract, is used to slow only the last part of the ride in a smooth, carefully controlled action.
