The tour consists of 6 zip lines that range in length from 300 to 1100 ft. for a total approximate distance of 3,200 ft. Each tour lasts about 2 hours. The weight requirements are 70lbs to 250 lbs and the harness must fit correctly.
Rugaru Adventures’ number one priority is the safety of our guests. Our courses meet or exceed the Association of Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) standards.

The 4-1-1 for Zip Line Fun!
Rugaru guides are professionally trained, and certified by the ACCT for your safety and enjoyment. This training consists of multi-day, hands-on instruction including safety and retrieval. Prior to certification, guides must pass a written assessment test, an on-course practical assessment and retrieval assessment.
All tour guides and crew are first aid and CPR certified. Our zip lines and safety equipment are inspected periodically per ACCT requirements and zip lines use a state-of-the-art automatic braking system to further ensure the safety of our guest.
