A Little History about Zip Lines:
The origin of the modern day Zip Line can be traced back to the early Tirolian and South Tirolian climbers in the late 19th and early 20th century. Climbers used ropes and other gear to navigate rock towers and divides, simply as a means to get from one place to the next. More than a century ago, villagers in high mountainous places, forestry departments, military and many others were developing ways to move goods, take care of environment, or insert troops into areas that just were not accessible other ways, at least not easily. Forestry scientists used this technology to move thru the tree tops to further studies. The US Navy in the late 1930’s had even developed Zip Lines from one ship to the other for replenishing goods while under way in order to stay out to sea for longer periods of time. The early 1970’s saw the greatest development for use when the rain and cloud forest canopies were the last remaining frontiers of botany, zoology, entomology and ecology. Ph.D. students Donald Perry and John Williams first strapped on their rock climbing harnesses, clicked their carabineers on to a belay line, and grabbed onto their jumars to ascend a tree instead of a granite face. The movie Medicine Man began filming and the researchers stumbled upon these treetop cable rides and incorporated them into a breath taking scene in that 1992 movie. From that point forward adventurers and enthusiasts have pushed the limits of excitement and challenge to create the rides we know, and you are about to experience today.
