Our preferred zip line braking method is the Bungee Brake, bringing riders to a smooth and gentle stop. This type of brake is considered a passive braking system and not dependent upon the rider at all.

DOUBLE 30 FT BUNGEE BRAKE SYSTEM Includes two lengths of bungee cord. Used for special situations where more braking force is needed.

The mounted block on the zip line cable is made to slide freely. Attached to the block is a bungee cord. When the rider zips down the cable, near the 3/4 mark, the rider's trolley bumps into the block, as the rider continues travel, the bungee cord stretches and slows the rider down until he stops. The bungee cord retracts and the riders slide backwards on the cable until they reach the lowest point of the zip line.
