Steps of Design and Installation 

Locating the perfect site can be challenging, especially without property ownership. If your terrain is flat, a sufficiently tall tower suffices for your zipline. Yet, on uneven terrain, the challenge intensifies. Share the grid coordinates with us, and we’ll assess the suitability of your desired location for a zipline.


Upon confirming location viability or potential, a site visit is essential for measurements in the catenary and clearance study. This service is complimentary as part of the Site Visit/Survey, with the only expectation being coverage of travel expenses. It’s important to note that this visit does not constitute a zipline installation contract between Zip-Rush and the client.

Catenary and Clearance Study
In this crucial step, we ascertain the appropriate cable size between A and B, ensuring accurate clearance above any obstacles. Following data collection from surveyor, we swiftly propose a preliminary layout for the launch and landing sites. This process is typically executed promptly after receiving the survey data and, in some instances, ajusted on-site for immediate modifications if needed.
Stations Design

Post and/or tower design factors, such as budget, zipline length, estimated speed, and braking distance, hinge on the catenary and clearance study. This study defines crucial elements like sag, tension, clearance, and available braking space, guiding the tailored design to meet your specific requirements.


The engineering is important for structures to withstand the calculated design loads. Most of foreign countries will need a local engineer to stamp the plans. We offer engineering services in all provinces in Canada and foreign engineers is typically referred by client.


For international installations, local contractors handle site work. Our architect supervises, ensuring it aligns with our standards. This service incurs a weekly fee,typically included in our honoraries for each project.


Professional Zip-Rush’s riggers handle installation after site work and structure erection. The owner oversees the process to ensure it aligns with the plan, guaranteeing a seamless installation from start to finish.

Braking System

The pivotal phase of installation involves cable installation, followed by braking system installation and testing. Only when we are entirely satisfied can we confidently declare the job complete and the zipline safe.

Staff Training

Our comprehensive training program, led by our professional staff, may extend to a week or more in certain cases. It involves a detailed manual that must be strictly followed.

Soft Opening

During the soft opening, we discover what works and what doesn’t in zipline operation. Each zipline has specific procedures, making this phase crucial for observation and note-taking. We stand back, ensuring a smooth operation and later refine procedures if necessary.


This marks the moment for your final payment, marking your transition to a successful zipline owner, ready to enjoy the thrilling experience.
