Top 10 Reasons to Zip in the Rain

Top 10 Reasons to Go Zip Lining in the Rain

The sweet smell of summer is in the air… and I mean sweet. To celebrate the event, we have been giving out free t-shirts on our Facebook page and deodorant to our staff. T-shirts and shorts are now appropriate for the tour, but stay away from those new five-finger-toe shoes; they don’t provide adequate protection for your feet, and quite frankly, they freak me out. Over the past few weeks, we have been visited by the most unwelcome of neighbors. Her name is Non-Stop, Torrential Rain, and she has over stayed her welcome by four to five weeks. While she’s left our forests green and our rivers high, it’s time to give a little room to Mr. Sun. In the meantime, guests have been enjoying the tour and learned several important lessons; most importantly, “zipping in the rain rocks!” Why? You ask. I’ll let our customer explain. Over the past few weeks, our customers have helped us compile the following Top 10 Reasons to Zip Line in the Rain:

  1. Warp Speed Effect.
  2. The colors become exaggeratedly vibrant in the rain- especially those bright green mosses and lichens.
  3. No chance of getting thirsty.
  4. Avoid the hordes of fair-weather-zippers arriving en masse on sunny days.
  5. You’ve finally got a chance to give your fancy new rain gear a run for its money.
  6. That free coffee/cocoa waiting back at the Welcome Center NEVER tasted so good.
  7. You can pee your pants (or sweat profusely) and no one will be the wiser!
  8. Zipping through a veil of fog gives the experience an added sense of mystery.
  9. You earn an extra Tough Stripe/ Rain Merit Badge for zipping in the rain (plus your wet-dog photos make you look SUPER hardy).
  10. Warp Speed Effect.
