There are 3 parts to the entire course beginning, intermediate and advanced. You can just start with the beginning. I think it takes more endurance than strength. Besides when I did this it was 100 degrees out that day. ----- Original Message ----- From: Sally Benjamin To: tabi@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Tuesday, July 17, 2012 6:21 PM Subject: [tabi] Re: Zip Line at Tally museum is tough but blind friendly I have wanted to do that for a while but not sure I am strong enough.

When we first arrived, a staff was explaining the prices for the 1 hour and 2 hour courses (15 to 30 bucks). I asked if there were any things I might have concern over as a blind person. He said that another blind person had already done the zip line and had no trouble. I wonder who that was? In fact what impressed me was that the entire staff all did the entire zip line after this blind folded so they could experience the course as a blind person. Anyway, the zip line was lots of fun and a huge challenge and my body ached for about 3 days after doing it. I would love to do it again. There are 11 zip lines in the complete course and many challenges such as walking tight ropes, swinging platforms rolling skate boards all while you are up in the trees. I felt completely safe with the good instruction on using the equipment and harness. The staff are excellent and I incurrage you to go out and give it a try. If you have any questions, drop me a note back. The only size requirement is that you must be at least 48 inches tall and ware closed toe shoes. Lots of kids and adults were climbing and zipping. The highest point is about 60 feet up in the trees.
