Zip-Lining

Day 2 with my grandparents was an absolute blast.  We started off the day with a two hour Zip-Line tour, at Wahoo Ziplines.  The tour consisted of a total of 6 lines of varying lengths.  This was m first zip-lining tour and I loved it, so will be looking to go on more tours in the near future.  I recorded all the lines that we rode, and did my best to include parts with my grandparents, but since I was still getting used to my GoPro the shots weren’t always the best.

On each line, the guides challenged us to do something different.  Line one was just building trust in your harness.  You got hooked up then sat down, and the guide pushed you out into the abyss.

On line two they told you to get a running start, and then jump out on your own.  I had fun on this line, and tried to build up as much speed as possible to make the trip even more exhilarating.  Line three was the same thing, but they also challenged you to let go of the rope holding you to the zip line, and just relax.

Line four was one that many people didn’t want to try, and that was to hang upside down for part of the line.  They had you step back and basically do a trust fall, and then pull your feet up to the buckles.  This was fun, but my boots made it a little hard to keep my feet up the entire time.

Line five was a partner line.  One person just rode, while the person in back held both lines and made sure they never go too close.  This was one of the longer lines, and you got a lot of speed due to two people going at once.  The girl I ended up going with tried so hard to go by herself since she didn’t know me, but the guide let her know that she wouldn’t make it by herself.  In the end it was a fun line.

Line six was two lines beside each other, and you were encouraged to race the person on the other line.  The little girl that went beside me told me she wasn’t racing, so I just took the time to enjoy the line and have fun on my last ride.

Well it was a fun time, and think everyone should try zip-lining at least once.  Thanks for reading.
