NEVER ALLOW CHILDREN TO USE ZIP LINE WITHOUT ADULT SUPERVISION.

ALWAYS WEAR A HELMET WHEN RIDING ZIP LINE.

KEEP HAIR AWAY FROM CABLE.

DO NOT ATTEMPT TO SWITCH RIDING GEAR BETWEEN PARTICIPANTS OR PUT RIDING GEAR ON WHILE STANDING ON AN ELEVATED LAUNCH PLATFORM WHERE A FALL COULD RESULT IN INJURY.

NEVER ‘JUMP’ FROM A LADDER OR PLATFORM ONTO ZIP LINE.

A SECOND PERSON MAY BE REQUIRED TO HOLD PARTICIPANT IN PLACE TO PREVENT THEM FROM DESCENDING DOWN THE ZIP LINE BEFORE THEIR TURN TO RIDE.

IF NO HAZARDS ARE OBSERVED ALONG CABLE AVENUE AND IF RIDING GEAR SUCCESSFULLY HOLDS WEIGHT OF PARTICIPANT, THE PARTICIPANT MAY SLOWLY PUSH AWAY FROM PLATFORM AND ALLOW GRAVITY TO PROPEL THEM DOWN THE ZIP LINE.

NEVER PLACE HANDS IN FRONT OF TROLLEY. DO NOT TOUCH CABLE WITH BARE HANDS.

RETURNING THE TROLLEY BACK TO THE BEGINNING OF YOUR ZIP LINE CAN BE ACHIEVED BY USING A ROPE OR SIMILAR TOW LINE. THE TOW LINE MUST BE ATTACHED TO THE TROLLEY AFTER COMPLETION OF THE RIDE. DO NOT RIDE WITH THE TOW LINE ATTACHED TO THE TROLLEY, HARNESS OR RIDER.

DO NOT COIL OR LOOP TOW ROPE DURING RIDE. IT MAY CAUSE ENTANGEMENT AND STRANGULATION.

DO NOT ALLOW TOW ROPE TO DRAG BEHIND PARTICIPANT DURING ZIP LINE RIDE. IT MAY CAUSE ENTANGLEMENT AND INJURY.

PARTICIPANT MUST NOT DISMOUNT FROM ZIP LINE UNTIL THEY HAVE COME TO A COMPLETE STOP.

PARTICIPANT MUST DISMOUNT FROM ZIP LINE BY TRANSFERRING THEIR WEIGHT OFF CABLE AND ONTO A RAMP, PLATFORM, GROUND, ETC.

NEVER PLACE MORE THAN 350 POUNDS ON ZIP LINE.

BE AWARE THAT ZIP LINE CABLE MAY SPRING UPWARDS WHEN RIDER DISMOUNTS. BE SURE ANY EQUIPMENT STILL ATTACHED IS REMOVED OR RAISED UP SLOWLY TO AVOID INJURING PARTICIPANT OR OPERATOR.
