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.
