Zip Lining with Kids in Manuel Antonio is Very Safe
Many of our family groups who are visiting Manuel Antonio will send us an email asking how safe it is for kids to go Zip Lining? Well, we are here to explain that it is 100% safe for kids to experience the Canopy Tour. Please take the time to read through this blog post as we explain to you the safety procedures we perform to ensure a 100% safe and secure canopy tour for Kids.
Equipment that Fits Kids To Ensure Safety
There is equipment for kids that makes them extra secure on the Zip Line. The gear comes in different sizes so its just a matter of having the kid try it on to see if it fits right, which is done before you begin the walk to the canopy platforms.
Large Canopy Platforms
The canopy platforms are very big and provide a lot of space for you to wait until it is your turn to ride the Zip Line. When you are not hooked to the Zip Line, you are instructed to wait at a safe and secure spot on the Canopy Platform. This ensures us that you are always safe and never on the edge.
Tight Harness for Secure and Steady Ride
Some people ask what happens if they let go of the handles while they are in the air? The answer is nothing, you stay in place with the help of the gear that we provide for you so there is no unexpected movement by letting go of the handles. Also, your body will remain inside the harness at all times, regardless of whether or not you let go of the handles.
Multiple Options Besides Zip Lining
On some scenarios, when the kid rides the first Zip Line, they may not feel up to continuing riding more of the Canopy Lines. The positive thing about our tour is that we provide hanging bridges and nature walks which are a great alternative for you if you decide to not continue with the Zip Lining.
Certified Guide During the Entire Tour
Our minimum age requirement is 4 years and above. You will be assigned a Certified Guide which will be with you along the way. In fact, a lot of families select the option of the tour guide riding the Zip Line with the Kid, it makes some parents feel much more calmer and we are all about creating a safe and relaxing experience.
