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 #4:

4. Watch your step on the course

Once on the course, make sure you’re strapped onto a safety line at all times — not just while you’re zipping through space. (Some places require that you have two safety lines hooked on.) Many accidents occur by a simple step off a platform. So if you’re on the course (which often means many feet off the ground), you should be safely attached to a line that will catch you if you fall. Also, watch out for other adventurers and the guides. Don’t get in their way.
