ZipZone safety gear and equipment

Fun and safety go hand-in-hand at ZipZone.

Everything we do is designed to maximize your fun, thrills and comfort, while at the same time keeping you safe. Our safety gear is expensive, and there is none better. It is the same gear used by professionals working at height all over the world.

Our most important safety feature is our well-trained guides. Every member of staff goes through extensive technical training and is backed up by an emergency management team that stands ready to deal with anything that might happen.

And their most important tool? Their great smile to put you at ease and make your day truly fun


Redundant backup system

Our systems are fail-safe, with built in redundancy, so that you always have two separate safety mechanisms protecting you

Main Tether

Connects to the main suspension point.

Backup Tether

Uses a completely separate safety system that uses no common connection points.

Backup Suspension Points

The backup attachment point carries a “Riding carabineer” that clips over the zipline.


Superior Technology

Safety doesn’t happen by accident. We use the latest technological innovations to keep you safe

High Tech Cable

ZipZone is one of the first zipline companies in the world to use IRWC 6×26 compacted strand steel wire, meaning the ride is quieter, smoother and faster!

Our cable is 30% stronger than conventional zipline cable and rated to 35,000 lbs!

Do The Dangle ™ tether

To make sure your legs and feet cannot contact the zipwire or the trolley while you are freestyle zipping, we use a special tether that allows you to fly upside down safely, keeping toes and laces well out of harm’s way.
