The harnesses are designed to be used on our system with our equipment. You cannot fall out of them if you follow all the instructions you are provided in the safety class prior to your tour. You are NOT allowed to flip upside down or twist around in your harness for your safety. Trying to invert yourself is not allowed and will not happen without effort from you (the guest).
Do I Have To Hang on The Whole Time?
No, you do not. The harness is very supportive and comfortable. The guides go over when you are to release your hold and where you are to be holding during the safety speech.
Do I Need To Bring Water?
We provide as many bottles of water for every guest as needed, however, if you would like to bring your own you are welcome to.
Can I Bring a Camera?
You are welcome to bring a camera with you as long as it has a strap (wrist or neck). You are NOT allowed to take pictures while in flight for safety reasons, however if you have a means to be “hands-free” you are welcome to take pictures/video during the flight. We DO NOT allow Selfie Sticks while you are flying down the zipline.

There is a 15-minute hike after the van ride up the mountain. You are hiking up a mountain bike trail switchback. The guides DO stop halfway and encourage our guests to stop as often as necessary.
Is There Any Training Involved?
There is a safety class prior to getting on the bus for the ride up the mountain. The guides for your tour go over the basic information about the tour as well as safety information about the equipment and experience.
What If I Decide At Any Point That I Don't Want To Go?
We do not want anyone to experience the flightlines if they do not feel they can complete it. If someone should choose NOT to fly after they arrive we can issue gift certificates that have a year expiration. If they choose NOT to go and cancel more than 24 hours before their tour, we will issue a refund minus $50 per person booking fees.
What If There Is Bad Weather?
If WE HAVE to canceled the tour for weather – due to high winds, rain, lightning or any other unsafe conditions – , first we try to reschedule the guest(s) or give them gift certificates. If neither option works, give full refund. “Bad” weather is determined per individual, as well, not always by the actual weather. Some people do not arrive prepared for a change of temperature or mild precipitation. If a guest(s) would like to cancel due to weather and WE have NOT canceled the tour, we will reschedule them or can issue gift certificates with a year expiration – if you are international or do not travel back often we can extend that further.
Will I Have The Chance To See Any Animals?
The Red Mountains are filled with wildlife. The earlier tours have a better chance of seeing big horn sheep. The afternoon tours have a better chance of seeing several different species of lizards on the mountain.
Can I Tip My Tour Guides and Drivers?
Tipping your guides and drivers is GREATLY APPRECIATED. They work very hard to ensure your safety on the tour while entertaining and informing you about the beautiful surroundings.
What Is It Exactly?
The guided tour can take up to two and a half hours. It consists of a van ride to “basically” the top of the mountain; at this point you will have a 10 – 15-minute hike to the first platform. The guides stop half way up the hike and are more than happy to stop at any point along the way if necessary. Once you reach the top of the Red Mountain, you’re about 3,800 feet above sea level. From this point you ride a series of four separate ziplines that bring you back down the mountain over the canyons. Our first run is 1,852-ft. long. It has a 400-ft. drop at a 17% grade and can get you up to speeds of 60 mph. Then the ziplines get progressively longer until our 3rd run, which is 8 feet short of half a mile. Our last line is the shortest at a quarter of a mile. Once you have finished the series of four the van picks you back up and bring you back to the shop. Actual time on the lines is about three minutes but there is always the possibility of an “extended” tour. We have positive and negative lines and Mother Nature and following directions can affect how you fly down the lines. If you don’t have enough speed or the wind is blowing against you, there is a chance you may not make it over our landing platform. If this is the case, one of our trained guides comes out and “rescues” you. It definitely adds to the entertainment of the group and the bird’s-eye views are amazing.
Why Does It Take So Long?
Our tour is a whole Eco Adventure. There is a little bit of hiking, you get great views of the surrounding areas, and you have the chance to see wildlife. Each of our four runs has four lines next to each other. Each time a rider comes down the lines we have to reset the breaks for the next group of four to come down. Some decks take longer to set brakes than others. Once your group is done with one run as a whole, everyone moves collectively to the next run. The time you spend on each deck is minimal but entertaining.
How Strict Are You On The Weight Limit?
VERY STRICT. We weigh everyone upon arrival. If you come in over 250 pounds or under 75 pounds we will NOT allow you to fly for safety reasons. We do not want anyone to experience the Flightlinez if they do not feel they can complete it. If someone should choose NOT to fly after they have arrived we will issue a gift certificate so that they can return at another time.
Why Do You Have a Weight Limit?
It is NOT for the ziplines themselves. The lines can hold the weight of a semi truck. The weight restriction is in effect because of our independent braking system. Right now the brake boxes we have developed can only handle up to a certain weight. If a guest weighed over our weight limit and decided NOT to follow our very important directions or the wind is causing a tail wind, the guest could get seriously injured. Therefore our insurance company does NOT allow anyone over 250 pounds.
If There Are Only Four Lines, Why Does It Take So Long?
Our tour is an ECO ADVENTURE. This begins with a scenic van ride up the Red Mountain, and a moderate hike to the first platform. Each of our four runs has four lines, with tour groups typically including 12 guests. As each group of four flies down, we then have to reset the brakes for the next group of four. Some decks take longer to set the brakes than others. Once your group is down as a whole you move onto the next run. The time you spend on each deck is minimal but entertaining and breathtaking.
Which Tour Time Is The Best?
This really depends on YOU! The earlier tours 8, 9 & 10 a.m. have the best chance of seeing wildlife. The midday tours will be the hottest temperature during summer months. The late afternoon tours have amazing views as the sun sets over the desert landscape.
What Time Should I Arrive For My Tour?
Please arrive at our office 30 minutes prior to your scheduled tour time. We are located at 1644 Nevada Highway, Boulder City, NV 89005.
Does An Adult Need To Accompany Their Kids If They Are Under 18?
YES. We require someone over the age of 18 to accompany ANYONE 17 or younger. If you cannot sign the waiver for yourself you MUST be accompanied by an adult / gaurdian.
What If I Am Currently Wearing a Cast?
You cannot participate with any type of cast on your leg or foot. This includes walking casts and walking boots. Please understand it is for your safety and the safety of our staff that if you have your arm, wrist or hand in a cast you will be tethered down by one of your landing guides. If you would like to zipline next to your group you will need to contact the office in advance to add an additional guide to your tour to tether you down at any point. The additional fee is $60.
