Zip lining is a pure rush of adrenaline. The feeling of weightlessness as you quickly glide across the line is something that few experiences can match. If you have never been before, the question is “What should I expect?” Understanding how zip lines work is a great first step to prepare for your excursion.

Today, Empower Adventures shares a few tips about what to expect as you zoom across the zip line, and how you will want to keep coming back for more.

Safety First

The most important thing about zip lining is your safety. At Empower Adventures, we take safety very seriously, and your equipment will be your best friend. You will receive a helmet, a harness, and some carabiners as you prepare for your adventure. When you step off the platform and onto the line, your weight is distributed throughout the harness with the help of the ropes, carabiners, and the handlebars on the zip line trolley. Before you make the leap, a professional guide will attach you to the trolley on the cable to ensure a safe and fun ride!

Zip Line Guides

Professional zip line guides will make your adventure even more enjoyable. These guides live for both the adrenaline rush and having you enjoy the experience as much as they do. There will be guides to send you on your way down the line, and at the end to slow you down and catch you on the new platform. If you have any questions on the zip line course, ask the guides!

Wind in Your Hair

Stepping off the platform, gliding on the cable, will definitely give you a breath of fresh air! When you are on the cable, you will feel weightless, which brings an instant smile to your face. At Empower Adventures we have more than 3,000 feet of zip lines, providing several opportunities for another adrenaline rush. As you fly over the beautiful Tampa Bay wetlands, you’re able to get a bird’s eye view of this fantastic area.
