Winter Ziplining: What Should I Wear?

By February 27, 2020 No Comments

Winter in Tampa Bay usually stays around 70 degrees, but some days dip down to about 50 degrees. Don’t let the chilly weather keep you indoors! Just bundle up a bit and head out for some weekend adventuring in our beautiful bayside park. Empower Adventures Tampa Bay explains what you should wear when winter ziplining.

Sturdy Shoes With Socks

Always wear sturdy shoes when you’re ziplining, no matter the weather. This means closed-toe shoes with socks. You might be outdoors for a few hours, so your socks help keep your extremities warm.

T-Shirt Underneath

Ziplining 30 feet in the air and traveling close to 20 mph is a thrill. In the winter, when the weather has a slight nip to it, you might feel a chill from the air. Wear a T-shirt underneath your outer clothes to keep the cool breeze from making you cold as you traverse our 3,000-foot ziplining course.

Sweatshirt or Jacket

If you want to stay warm during cooler weather in Tampa Bay, go for a sweatshirt or jacket outside of your T-shirt. The long sleeves keep your arms warm while also creating a layer that keeps the wind off of you as you soar through our canopy ziplining tour. Please keep your jacket zipped or buttoned up to avoid loose clothing.

Rain Gear

We do operate during the rain, so bring some rain gear if you expect the weather to be wet. Consider a lightweight rain jacket or windbreaker. Empower Adventures Tampa Bay wants ziplining to be fun for everyone, even if rain is in the forecast.

What Not to Wear

Avoid wearing loose-fitting items, such as a scarf, loose-fitting sweater, Crocs, or flip-flops. Avoid dangling jewelry and long hair flowing loosely in the wind. Hats are not necessary because you wear a safety helmet.
