Hello Everyone!

We do have a braking system at the end of each zip line. Our company operates two different types of braking systems.

On both our Classic course and Extreme course, we have Brake Shuttles that are made to help reduce the speed and create a smooth stop coming into each receiving platform. At Ground School, a pre class on zip lining, you are taught how to hand brake which is also used to assist in slowing yourself down. On both of our courses you will also find an automatic braking system called ZipStops that are used on zip lines that may produce faster speeds.

We do not have a spring system at our company.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to give us a call! we would love to hear from you. Our number is 719-275-7238

Yes, they have a braking system that the guides operate. They will still walk through the process of assisting them with slowing yourself down by using your hand but they do actually run the brakes.

There is a arrival station on the other end. Mid I remember correctly it had a large spring like stop area which a large landing area.

Yes for the Classic tour. There is one run where they may signal you to do a hand brake and the last line's system can leave you a bit short of the platform.
