SkyZip Safety Considerations:
Safety-First is our credo, and safety is much more than an afterthought in the development of the SkyZip ride; it is an inherent component of every part, every element, every system, and every procedure that was included in its design, development, manufacturing, installation, manuals, and owner/operator training.
While developing the SkyZip system, we were not content with just meeting the industry standards (Every part is precision engineered to equal or surpass the ANSI-B77 Tramway, ASTM and TUV SUD codes), we have collaborated in the design of the system with a leading engineering firm, and plans for every element, component and design element of the ride has been reviewed and stamped by a professional engineering firm.
Participants must be between 35 and 125 kgs (75 and 275 pounds) and be comfortable with heights. This ride is not recommended for individuals with back or neck problems, or those who are pregnant. Videos and pictures of your ride will be available at the end of your ride! However, you would be required to book your helmet cam video when you purchase your ride.
