NOW OPEN! The Vigilante Extreme ZipRider®

WHAT IS IT?

An exciting new thrill ride! The ZipRider®  zip line cable is based on the familiar concept of the back yard zip line but then turns that fun experience into an exciting, no-worries ride. The key lies in the ZipRider® trolley, a device designed to automatically brake while the rider descends cable gradients ranging from 5%-40%.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Each rider is comfortably seated in a special harness without needing multiple harness sizes or staging areas for fitting. The ride operator will open the gates at the launch site, the riders fly out the doors with no responsibilities other than to enjoy the ride. The rider will not control their speed or braking. As the rider approaches  the end of the ride , the trolley enters a patented terminal brake acceptor and dampening system, which slows the ride to a stop. Once stopped, the guest walks out of the harness and away from the ride
