Zipline FAQs

Ziplining is a thrilling outdoor activity during which a rider wears a harness which is securely connected, via carabiner and pulley, to a cable suspended high above the ground. The rider then glides along the cable for a uniquely exhilarating experience.

Your zipline tour includes nine zipline runs of various lengths, along with Pinzgauer (a 4-wheeled safari jeep type vehicle) rides to and from our scenic launch deck on the mountain, a walk across a beautiful suspension bridge, historical information about the area from our expert tour guides, plus all the equipment and safety information you’ll need to have a safe and exciting adventure.

Your tour will last approximately 2 1/2 to 3 hours. You should arrive at our Big Bear Boulevard office and departure point a minimum of 15 minutes before your tour time to watch the safety video and sign a liability waiver. Vans will not wait for late arrivals – no exceptions!

Your zipline tour will take you on nine different ziplines of lengths ranging from 120 ft. – 860 ft.

Ziplining is intended to be exciting and produce an adrenaline rush, but safety is our top priority. We inspect all elements of our course daily. Our cables can support up to 60,000 lbs. and our ziplines are outfitted with Prusik braking systems so riders can experience the excitement while still feeling secure.

Riders may reach speeds of up to 35-45 mph while ziplining.
