What an awesome dude! I can only wish that I will live as long; and that I will still have a robust sense of adventure and fun! See the link below for the full story from Guinness Book of World Records.
Micheal Wake of Aerial Parks Safety and Consultation brings years of experience to our design and build at Tanzip Zipline! Based Canada, Mike has worked all over the world and past projects include the new MistRider and Wildplay at Niagara Falls.
Mike is also providing the zipline safety and operations training for our aerial guides and staff according to international safety standards, including height safety training and first aid.
We look forward to working with Aerial Parks for our expansion of the adventure park and the next zipline location!
Check out this docu-series that follows aerial park designers, Steve and Clayton, as they build zipline parks from the ground up!
- A cable stretched between two points that people slide down or across by using gravity for amusement or travel. People usually wear a harness attached to a pulley or trolley by a lanyard or rope.
- Canopy Tour
- A route or trail set in the canopy of the forest. May include aerial bridges and ziplines.
- Suspension Bridge
- A bridge that the deck (the load bearing area/ where you walk or drive) is hung below horizontal suspension cables that are attached to vertical beams or supports.
- Via Ferrata
- A via ferrata, “iron road”, is a safe rock climbing route. Climbers are attached to a cable that remains secured throughout the climb, so any falls are minimal.
- Aerial Park
- These recreational parks are usually designed to accommodate a large variety of guests, and elements include ropes courses, obstacle courses, swinging bridges, ziplines and more. Guests clip into an overhead cable so they cannot actually fall as they go around the course. Courses are often suspended in trees, or can be in free standing towers.
