When Will the Ziplines be Open?
We’re planning to open the ziplines on approximately March 1st, 2017. But you know how construction projects can go, right? And you can’t rush the process if you want to ensure safety and compliance with all laws and regulations. In Pennsylvania, ziplines are considered amusement rides and we are preparing materials to register ours, and will announce it on Facebook when we are finally approved and open. We know that tens of thousands of you have seen our zipline project as you drive by Treehouse World between the Boot Road and Frazer exits on 202 in West Chester. It’s as exciting for us as it is for you, and we’re working diligently to open it up for you soon!
Basic Information about the Zipline Tour
Right now, our zipline tour includes 8 bridges and 3 ziplines. No two crossings are the same. The difficulty is easy to moderate with some light climbing and traversing. Sometimes, walking on wire and rope and crooked boards that wobble a bit can mess with your sense of normal. However, you don’t need to be a gymnast to get through the course. The tree platforms vary in size from 25 to 350 square feet, and are set in trees up to 50 feet above ground. The ziplines range from 100′ to 430′ long, with variable speeds. The last zipline goes over the pond.
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. For construction of commercial and residential ziplines, please visit Tree Top Builders, Inc. For buying a kit or parts to install a zipline yourself, please visit Treehouse Supplies, Inc.
