It operates on the simple principle of gravity and tension. Riders are strapped into a harness and attached to a pulley system that runs along a suspended cable. By stepping off a platform or a high point, gravity propels the rider along the cable, while the tension in the cable keeps them moving smoothly. Speed and distance are controlled by factors like the weight of the rider and the slope of the cable. As riders zip through the air, they experience an exhilarating rush and breathtaking views, making zip lining an unforgettable outdoor experience.
