After the recent completion of the tree house, I realized we had just built a nice launch platform for a zip line. So I quickly ordered up a nice 100′ kit and was excited to install it. Turns out there was a nice big stopping point tree just 95 feet away. So I rigged it up between that tree and the tree house and we got going. The kids were tentative at first. They would get on and pull themselves upstream and then let go. Finally, I got them up in the tree house to launch and that’s when the fun began! They ended up riding for probably 8 hours. All I could hear from the house were screams of terror and delight. Ended up being a pretty cool addition to our growing set of toys in Leadville!
It must be nice to be the small one. You don’t ever have to pull anyone. You just do the riding!
You also get a catcher at the end so you get the smoothest landing possible.
Hang on tight!
