How Far in Advance do we need to make a reservation?
This depends on the season. Generally, during our summer season our tours fill up two to three months ahead of time, so it is highly recommended that you book your tour at least three months in advance.
What is a zipline?
A zipline is a cable reaching between two fixed points (in our case trees and poles), that a participant zips on with a trolley that rests on the cable and is attached to the participant. The person can travel, or zip along from the start to the end of the cable, landing on a platform at the end of each zipline.
How safe is this?
The construction and operation of our zipline course meets or surpasses the Association for Challenge Course Technology's (ACCT) standards. This course was designed and installed by Synergo: a Professional Vendor Member (PVM) of ACCT. Synergo also provides the training for our guides and completes our periodic course inspections. Daily inspections of the course and all equipment are done by the Denali Park Zipline Tour Managers.
What if I've never been ziplining before?
Don't worry. You will fit right in with most other participants! Our experienced and patient guides will happily facilitate your experience to make you as comfortable as possible. You will also complete a short practice session prior to the main tour.
My kids would like to go but I would prefer not to. Are youth allowed to zip by themselves?
No. We require anyone under the age of 18 to be accompanied by a responsible adult. By participating, we mean to join in on the actual tour along side the youth. We do not consider following the tour on the ground as participating as there will be many spots in which the tour is not visible from the trails.
What if my 8 years old kid weighs 65lbs? Is this close enough?
Even though they are close, we still cannot allow them to participate. The weight restrictions are there for your safety and we are not able to make exceptions.
Can I take my dog with me on the tour?
We do not allow canines (or any animals for that matter) to join us either on the tour or in the vans.
Are there any physical requirements for this tour?
Minimum weight is 70lbs, maximum weight is 280lbs. Participants must be able to walk up a moderate 300' incline, including stairs. Participants must be able to hold the cable trolley and lift their knees up while they are zipping. One of our platform is accessed by climbing a 20' ladder while roped in. Pregnant women or guests with injuries, seizure disorders, back or neck problems, or hearing or vision impairments will not be allowed to participate.
How many people are in a tour group?
Tour groups consist of a maximum of 8 participants and 2 guides. If you would like to book a larger group, please contact us to make arrangements!
How high off the ground will I be?
Up to 50 feet; each individual zipline is different.
How many ziplines are on the tour?
There are 8 ziplines on the tour, including the dual racer ziplines. Tour participants ride 7 of the 8 zips. There is also a short test zip before you start the course.
Do you run tours in the rain?
Yes! We zip in most weather conditions and will make every effort to complete your tour as scheduled. If there is lightning or high winds, we will need to suspend and potentially cancel your tour. If your tour is cancelled due to weather, we are happy to offer you a full refund.
Do I need a signed waiver?
Yes! In order to participate, each person needs to sign our Assumption of Risks/Liability Release form. Adventure activities involve hazards and risks which are outlined in our Assumption of Risks/Liability Release form. Those under the age of 18 will need to have a parent or guardian signature as well. Forms will be available to fill out on site.
What equipment do we wear for the tour?
Each participant will wear a full body harness, as well as a helmet and leather gloves. You will also have your own zip trolley which allows you to zip from platform to platform. We provide all of this equipment on site.
What type of clothing should I wear?
Closed-toe shoes, long pants and layered clothing is required. If your hair is shoulder length or longer, bring a hair tie. Please remove dangling jewelry prior to zipping. If you want to bring a camera, just make sure it is securely strapped to you, and keep it in a secure pocket while zipping.
Should I tip my guides? How much?
It will be nice to tip your guides about 10% if they did a good job and you had a great time.
