What height should I put my Zip-line at? Do I need a slope?

Assuming a level course, let’s start at the end… The Finish Point (FP) should be at least 2ft(.61m)
higher than the tallest rider. Let’s assume our rider is 5ft(1.52m), so the FP should be 7ft(2.13m)
off of the ground. The Start Point (SP) height needs to be higher of course to create a safe Drop. A
slope of 3-6% is recommended.
Full info is included in the Instructions that come with your zipline, you can also check these out on our Instructions page.
Hi I am looking into getting a zip line for my sons birthday i have trees but i would rather not use them. Do you assemble these? Do they take much to move as we are inrented accommodation until we can afford to buy. Could you price me a quote for all.
Trees are definitely the best option and require the least installation time, with trees you can have your line up and running in just 30 mins, there are tree protectors you can purchase to help keep the trees in good condition and stop abrassion. We currently don't provide installation but can recommend some companies that do, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like contact details for these. The kits would be purchased directly from us and the installation would be charged by the other company. Our kits cost between €170 & €290.
If you were to install your own structures instead of using the trees it would require digging holes and cementing structures into the ground so it would not be easy to move these to a new location at a later stage.
can you please send me installer's info please?
Hi Mary, you can give us a call on 083 8161360 and we'll talk you through the options.
Hi, as you seem to know a lot about ziplines, I have a question for you.
Dalian in Liaoning, China, has a very high launch platform but I cannot find its' height.
I went down it in 2010 (I have the photo as evidence, including the launch tower in the background) and guess maybe 150' at launch.
Can you help me please????
Many thanks, Andrew
