A thrilling 200 ft. long ride through the tree-tops

Home / Visit / What's Here? / Truassic Park / Zip-line


  • The first ride is included with eligible passes.
  • Additional rides are $3 each.
  • Zip line is NOT included in discount passes unless explicitly specified.


  • All riders must be 4ft tall. Adults are welcome, too! (waist size must be less than 40 inches).
  • All riders must sign a liability release form (below). Children under 18 years of age must have a parent or legal guardian sign for them.
  • Climbing harnesses and helmets must be worn at all times during the ride.
  • Note to girls: Because a climbing harness is worn during the ride, pants or shorts are recommended. Dresses or skirts may be worn on the zip line ONLY IF pants or shorts are underneath. No exceptions.


Our 200 ft long zip-line is rated for loads up to 4,000 lbs and it is carefully tested and properly maintained for safety. Every rider will be assisted with expert guidance by our professional staff members. Climbing harnesses and helmets must be worn at all times during the ride. Because the zip-line involves height, motion, and special climbing equipment there is a measure of caution that must be adhered to by all participants. Not only is our zip-line certified and annually inspected, it is also rigorously maintained and tested for safe operation. The zip line is closed October 31 - April 1 and operates weather-permitting the rest of the year. Conditions unsuitable for the zip line include, but are not limited to, rain, snow, sleet, ice, extreme cold, and nearby lightning.
