Safety and Training
Eco Adventure Ziplines is built to Association for Challenge Course (ACCT) standards. ACCT standards are the universally accepted safety standards for zipline canopy tours. Safety is our top priority and our ziplines are inspected each day before tours begin. An extensive course inspection is completed each year by an independent certified Missouri State Inspector to ensure the course is safe for participants. In addition, as our course utilizes living trees, an arborist visits our facility to check on the health of our trees.
All guests will receive a safety briefing prior to entering the course. After learning how to safely zipline and watching a demonstration, guests get started on the first zipline, right outside our office. This allows for an opportunity to learn and become comfortable with the process of safely zipping before proceeding to the higher ziplines.
Tours will always have two tour guides at all times who are trained to keep guests safe. One guide will be there to send you on the sending platform, and one guide will be there to receive you on the landing platform.
Eco Adventure Ziplines has implemented a proprietary safety braking system, designed by our owner Mike Seper, called the ZipVR. In 2013, Mike, having been in the zipline industry since 2010, noted that the traditional glove braking was not always easy for participants. He decided to create a brake that would not require the participants hand to touch or come near the zipline. The ZipVR safety system makes landings easier and smoother than traditional glove braking. Experience the evolution in safety with the ZipVR brake system.
