Come Experience  "The Real Deal !"

Safety

Zip Boise is committed to your safety. Through rigorous design and numerous successful zip experiences to date, you can be assured a safe and worry free experience. Our tour is regularly inspected and our staff is trained with your safety as our top priority. The Zip Boise course was designed by a licensed Structural Engineer, then re-reviewed and stamped by an Idaho Licensed Professional Engineer.  We secured a State of Idaho building permit and PASSED all six (6) field inspections, including our final inspection.

Zip Boise also meets or exceeds the ANSI American National Standard for zip lines and aerials adventure courses.

One Cable or Two?

Here at EBL, we prefer to install single zip line cables. That said, we also use a half inch cable, not the thinner cable as on most tours. So our system is engineered by professional engineers to 26,600 pounds. Engineered and maintained, single cable zip lines provide up to 50,000 cycles. In some cases, double cables have caused problems and most double cable set-ups require the guests to hand brake. We don't have our guests hand brake!

You may find it interesting to know that we have installed some 50 projects, internationally and across the United States, and we have had no problems with breaking cables or dropped guests.

Behind the scenes…

Zip Orlando, canopy tour pulleyEBL has been purposeful with our design and selection of harness systems, including your safety lanyards, helmet, pulley, and the training curriculum that the guides receive. Our methods have been proven sound by experience, destructive testing of our product line and professionally reviewed and installed to licensed Professional Engineer specifications. When you participate on an EBL canopy tour, thousands of hours behind the scenes have been devoted to keeping your experience safe. We are committed to safer operations and continually work within the adventure industry to bring new technologies online to enhance your experiences. Here is an example of our high pulley quality; 19,000 pounds rated with a redundant back-up carabiner over the cable itself.  Other tours only use a riveted 5,000 pound pulley.  You be the judge.

In addition to your safety, we are committed to being "green" by implementing minimum-impact practices from construction site pathways, geographical considerations for pathways such as erosion and ground compaction, to Arborist approved tree trimming and construction designs of our engineered platforms. When you are standing in a platform, 65 feet off the ground, you want to know the craftsmanship is top notch. If it is an EBL course, it is.

Next time you research a canopy tour for your vacation, ask if it is an EBL tour. This is your assurance of a quality tour experience.
