Going Zip Lining for the first time is an exciting adventure. There are a few things you should do before you make the leap of your first zip line experience, however. Here is suggestion #1:

1. Make sure the operator of the zip line tour is legit

It’s not simply seeing if the company’s web site is slick enough. Before you decide to zip into the great beyond, make a phone call or two. Ask questions. Though there are currently no national standards for zip line construction and operation, many states have them, and any legitimate operator should also adhere to the standards set by the Association for Challenge Course Technology or the Professional Ropes Course Association. So ask about that. Ask how often the course is inspected, and by whom. Ask about the company’s safety record. Ask about its insurance. Ask about how the people there will keep you safe.
