First Time to Zip?

Don’t worry! Most participants have never been on a zipline adventure. Our instructors are here for you and will give you a complete orientation. Your instructor will be right with you as you complete a test course to ensure that you are prepared for your journey before departure. Instructors are available throughout your journey if you need them. We encourage you to read the information provided here and call Zipline Kingdom (502-890-3535) if you have any questions.

Participant Requirements

  • Minimum age: 10 years old
  • Minimum height: 55 inches tall
  • Maximum weight: 285 pounds

Participants 10 to 15 years old must be accompanied by an adult. One adult (age 18 or older) may supervise up to two participants (ages 10 to 15). Supervising adults must accompany the participants on the course and may not supervise from the ground.

Participants who are 16 or older do not need to be accompanied by a supervising adult.

Participants who are 16 or 17 must bring with them a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian, as well as a copy of that individual’s photo ID. You may download the waiver here.

The zipline course requires a certain degree of physical fitness. If you can climb a rope ladder using your arms and legs, we encourage you to give the course a try. Not sure? Visit Zipline Kingdom to speak to a zipline host and observe the course in operation. Zipline Kingdom is located at Jefferson Memorial Forest (11311 Mitchell Hill Road, Fairdale, Kentucky, 40118).

You should not participate if you have a neck, back, or bone condition; have a heart issue or high blood pressure; are pregnant; or have had recent surgery.

Zipline Kingdom does not refund the cost of your zipline journey if you cannot complete the course.
