Anticipated Opening in Early Summer, 2017
The Buccaneer Zipline is a great first or second experience of ziplining. It is about 150′ long and moves at about 10-15 mph, which is about like riding a bike or a horse across the yard. It is a fun activity for a birthday party or for our general admission guests (tickets sold separately), or for the kids who are too young to join the rest of their group on the Valley Creek Zipline Course.
The Process of Building a Small Zipline
The Buccaneer Zipline was designed to be comparable to a good backyard zipline ride. It is better than the smallest kits you can buy cheaply online, and made with commercial grade components. For example, most backyard ziplines are made with 1/4″ or 3/8″ wire rope, but ours is 1/2″, which makes the ride smoother, makes it rated for adults, and make it last a lot longer. The operation of the ride is designed to allow kids to wear a harness and get 2 rides each as a birthday party activity. Our sister company, Tree Top Builders, builds ziplines along with Treehouses for commercial and residential clients alike. One difference, however, is that most backyard ziplines land on the ground rather than on a platform above ground. At Treehouse World, we build a landing platform because we want the experience to be more like what they will experience on our Valley Creek Zipline Adventure Course. We anticipate that many first time zipline riders will try the little one first to assess how comfortable they are before climbing 50′ in the air for their first zipline ride.
Zipline Construction Resources
We get many requests from people who want to build their own zipline or hire us to build one for them. Treehouse World does not do this, but our affiliate companies do.
