30 Minute Session
Our roots run deep on South Padre Island. The Wells family has been here for almost a 100 years and we strive to provide the very best services and recreational activities to the visitors of SPI.
When Dolores and I traveled the USA and the Caribbean islands zipping /researching different zip-lines designs we soon learned that that we liked zipping more than hiking long distances. We decided to provide you with maximum zip-lining time possible so we designed large tower structures that accommodate six zip-lines for a fast round-trip zip-lining experience without leaving the towers.
Zip-a-thon: We don’t limit your number of zips. With our unique quick zip-line transition system you will be able to go around the zip-line circuit as fast, or, slow as you want to during your session. We want you to have the maximum zip-lining fun experience you can within an hour. Believe me, an hour of speed zipping here is an experience not obtainable anywhere else.
Safety: As with all of our activities, the very first consideration is safety. We hired the very best company in the industry, Adventure Experience, INC. to install & certify the zip-lines, train and certify our Staff to the world safety standards of the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT). ACCT is the world’s leading and largest American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Accredited Standards Developer focused specifically and solely on the challenge course industry. “Redundancy” or “doubled” are the keywords in the industry. Every zip-line cable, pulley, lanyard and components of the zip-lines are doubled for your safety.
No hand-brakes here: Our zip-line brakes are the newest state-of-the-art brakes that don’t require folks to brake themselves. Simply let our professional staff outfit you with your zipping gear, teach you how to zip and they will be there at every take-off and landing to insure your enjoyment and safety.
Zip-line Towers: The main tower has three 2,500 sq/ft levels for zipping and observation. Zippers start at the top level with four (4) – parallel zip-lines to zip 500 feet to the return tower. The four parallel zip-lines allow high volume zipping for groups or families to zip together and to simultaneously share the zipping experience. Once the zip-liner gently lands our Staff will un-clip them from the zip-line cables and directed them to the stairs for the return zip. Typically the return zip has a slight tail-wind and is much faster. The return braking system is the automated Zip-Stop Brake for your safety.
Requirements: Minimum age is 10 years old. Weight limitations are a minimum of 60 lbs and a maximum of 300 lbs. (We will weigh you). Anyone with medical or physical issues, pregnant or any other ailment can’t go on the zip-lines. ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST COMPLETE & SIGN A WAIVER OF RELEASE OF LIABILITY & PARTICIPANTS UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST HAVE A WAIVER OF RELEASE OF LIABILITY SIGNED BY THEIR PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN.
We look forward to zip-lining with y’all soon,
Doyle & Dolores Wells
