We’ll provide expert safety instruction and all the necessary safety gear, including helmets, gloves, and harnesses.
Closed-toed, secure shoes are mandatory. Wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move around in, but avoid loose clothing, and tie back long hair–you don’t want anything getting stuck in our zipline cables. Our trips run rain or shine, so dress according to the weather. Think sunscreen and sunglasses during the summer and jackets for the cold, wind, or rain.
We’ll provide guests with all the necessary safety equipment for this course. Small backpacks are permitted in most cases but are absolutely not necessary. Water will be provided at stations throughout the course. Let your guide know if any specialized medical supplies need to be brought out on course throughout the adventure. We will have a safe spot for any valuables you don’t want to take on the course.
Trips will start and end at Building 8 on the Mill Creek side of campus. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to trip time for check in.
Trips will continue even during periods of heavy rain, but trips will be halted in the case of lightning or heavy sustained winds on the mountain.
It all depends on the size of your group, but a round-trip adventure generally takes two to three hours. This includes bus rides, gear up, and actual physical completion of the course.
There is inherent risk in any adventure, but with our highly trained guides we aim to mitigate any risks involved. Gravity Ziplines features top-of-the-line equipment, and we follow strict safety guidelines.
There will be an option to exit the course after our starter zips if you so choose. You will remain on the Gravity Mountain for the remainder of the trip until the group finishes up. This usually means a ride in the UTV to the bottom of the mountain to hang out at our gear trailer.
Although these ziplines are the highest and fastest around, half of your journey will be spent navigating the platforms at the ground level. Our guides are highly trained in helping calm these fears and are usually able to help you work through it.
No. Gravity Ziplines is located away from Adventures on the Gorge’s main campus and is only accessible by bus ride. People actively participating on the trips are the only persons allowed on this journey.
