Are you feeling a little bit anxious about going zip-lining? You’re not alone! Many people feel nervous before they go ziplining for the first time. In this blog post, we will discuss some tips for calming your nerves and advice to make the experience more enjoyable. Follow these tips, and you’ll be zipping through the trees like a pro in no time!

Remember: The Equipment is Safe

One of the main reasons people feel nervous about going ziplining is because they worry about the safety of the equipment. However, you can rest assured knowing that modern ziplining equipment is incredibly safe. In fact, it is one of the safest outdoor activities that you can participate in. The harnesses and cables are designed to support a lot of weight and can easily hold up to two people at a time.

You’re Not Alone

When you arrive at the zipline course, you’ll likely see other people who are there to zip line as well. Talk to them! Chances are, they are feeling just as nervous as you are. Getting to know the people around you will help take your mind off of your nerves and make the experience overall more enjoyable.

Deep Breaths and No Overthinking!

Remember to trust the staff and the equipment. The #1 job of our staff is your safety, and we at Koloa Zipline are dedicated to making your experience as enjoyable as possible. Voice any questions or concerns to our highly trained staff. After you’ve finally accepted that the equipment is safe and you won’t get hurt, it is time for the easy part.

Once you’re all harnessed in and ready to go, it’s important to take a few deep breaths. This will help calm your nerves and clear your head. It is also important not to overthink the experience. Ziplining is actually very simple and if you just relax and enjoy the ride, you’ll have a great time. Before you know it, you’ll be showing off using our “Flyin Kaua’iian” harness that lets you perform all sorts of aerial tricks.
