Infrastructure

Our zip lines include double cables designed by expert engineers, to make this thrilling adventure one of safest available to tourists on Roatan. One cable is used for attaching your harness and pulley for easy gliding from one platform to the other. The second cable is simply for attaching emergency clips.

Between the two cables they are able to handle 18,000 – 20,000 lbs of pressure. We also use double caribeaner hooks with a twist and turn lock that prevents any accidental unlocking during the glide. The maximum length of a cable is 1300 ft and the highest point is over 100 ft.
