Zip Line Upgrade

by Creation Museum on August 22, 2014

Mike Holder of Historic Banning Mills has brought a crew up this week and is in the process of converting the course over to new equipment called Vertical Vantage, which is the safest, most convenient, and easiest product on the market. Screaming Raptor Zip Lines is the first location in North America that is using this product. Once the zip line guests get on the “system,” there is no way they can get off unless there is an emergency situation.

We are delighted to partner with Mike, who has experiences both in building and teaching life-supporting zip line construction, along with numerous demonstrations that included U.S. Presidents and their staffs, as an Army Ranger, Special Ops. He was a high-element team-building and mountaineering facilitator for over thirty-five years, and along with his lovely wife Donna decided in 1998 to build the Screaming Eagle Eco-Adventure Tour a short distance west of Atlanta. Here is Mike demonstrating the process right before it’s time to launch!

Soon to be added to the zip line adventure is the Quick Jump Free Fall Device that will give the rider the feeling of a free fall while comfortably controlling his descent!
