Zip-lines (also known as flying foxes, aerial ropeslides, aerial runways, or death rides) have grown in popularity in recent years, particularly at forest adventure parks. The longest zip-line in Europe is currently more than one kilometer long. Zip-lines on flat terrain are usually limited to 200m when using ordinary poles. On hilly ground, however, the same structure can be utilized to cover much greater distances by placing the poles on the tops of the hills!Zip-lines (also known as flying foxes, aerial ropeslides, aerial runways, or death rides) have grown in popularity in recent years, particularly at forest adventure parks.

Zipwires are typically deployed in a permanent location, but they are also ideal for temporary situations such as events or tradeshows. For the Events & Hospitality industry, we provide temporary thrill experiences. Read on to learn how to maximize the marketing possibilities of your event.

One of the most important elements to consider when constructing the basic arrangement of a zip-line or Flying Fox is visitor turnover ratios. To minimize "bottlenecks" that result in long visitor lines, any turnover ratio greater than 15 visitors per hour necessitates an appropriately constructed entrance space and a quick exit.

A launch platform attached to trees or poles that may be accessed by a fixed ladder is one of the simplest methods. Using launching platforms on the top of a tower or a tower scaffold with an integrated stairway, visitor turnover can be boosted even more. Alternatively, visitors can gain access to launch platforms by attaching them to an existing premise through an internal or exterior staircase.A launch platform attached to trees or poles that may be accessed by a fixed ladder is one of the simplest methods.

Alternatively, visitors can gain access to launch platforms by attaching them to an existing premise through an internal or exterior staircase.

The most usual exit approach involves qualified workers disconnecting the visitor strap from the trolley at a course finish around 3-5m above ground. Visitors can also ride till their feet touch the ground using a detachable bungee cord, after which the harness will be released from the trolley. Trolleys detachable from the main cable are the most effective solution when the layout includes stretches of open water or exceptionally rugged terrain, prohibiting a quick return of the trolley to the launch platform after a trip.

A variation ends with a paragliding landing, in which guests touch the ground, jog to a stop, and then release the trolley from the main wire.
Our product portfolio includes a wide range of zip-line and Flying Fox designs that are ideal for practically any area or terrain. We also design zip-line configurations for indoor sports and recreation centers.
