Ziplining is a rush of adrenaline that will leave you wanting more. If you want to have a great time, it’s important to have the knowledge you need. One of the most common questions we get at Empower Adventures Tampa is, “What should I wear when ziplining?” This is a very important question, and the right answer can ensure your comfort, safety, and fun!

In today’s blog, we are going to share a “What Not to Wear List,” so you can maximize your safety (and fun!). Read on to learn about three things you should avoid before getting on the zip line.

Uncomfortable Shoes

As you are climbing in the treetops and walking across suspension bridges, balance and comfort are important. Uncomfortable shoes will can the experience less fun and more dangerous. Heels, platform shoes, heavy boots, flip-flops, and sandals are all poor choices when you go zip lining. Make sure you have closed-toed athletic shoes with tread on the bottom to take safety and balance to the next level. Make sure to tie your shoes tightly, otherwise they might fly off while you are zipping down the line!

Dresses or Skirts

Dresses and skirts are not recommended on a zipline tour. You will be flying through the air at high speeds, and your clothing will fly around throughout the run. The ideal clothing is athleticwear that will not move around once you are on the zipline. Whether you are wearing shorts or a skirt, make sure that it is long enough for comfort. You will be wearing a harness during the adventure, and you will want to have enough leg covered so you don’t have the harness rubbing directly on your skin!

Jewelry or Accessories

Before you get to Empower Adventures for your ziplining tour, make sure to remove all jewelry or accessories. Small jewelry pieces, even earrings, can easily fall out when you are gliding through the air. More often than not, you won’t even feel the accessories fly off because of the wind! Rings, bracelets, necklaces, and more should be left in a bag or back at home before the adventure begins.
