Zip Lining Dangers
A bright blue sky, a beautiful mountain or body of water – as Spring Break 2015 descends upon us, thoughts turn to an outdoor fun – such as zip lining – which is a fun outdoor activity that while mostly safe, has inherent dangers as well.

What is Zip Lining?

A zip-line is a pulley attached to a cable that is often constructed of stainless steel.  The line is mounted on an incline and designed to have gravity move a participant from the top of the cable to the bottom by attaching to the free-moving pulley.  While zip lines have been used historically for mountain transportation, most often they are now installed as a sort of thrill entertainment.
