Predator Zip Lines Information

Everything you need to know about your Arizona zip line tour

The Predator Zip Line Tour is designed for people with average mobility and strength. Guests should be in reasonably good health. Children between the ages of eight and 11 must be accompanied by an adult. That adult must sign a permission-to-zip document. In the state of Arizona, no one under the age of 18 may sign a legal document.

You will be fitted with a seat harness, chest harness, a trolley system, two lanyards with safety clips and a helmet. The equipment is similar to rock climbing gear. It is specifically designed for application on a zip line course.

As a safety concern for the animals, cell phones, cameras, and any other electronic devices or loose objects are strictly prohibited. Anything that falls from your pockets will be irretrievably lost. Anything that falls in the habitats or the Serengeti is a safety threat to the predators and hoof stock, either as a dangerous projectile or as an inedible object.
