FAQ

Backyard zipline is an awesome toy to install on your garden or playground – all kids (and even adults!) love it and parents report they’ve never see their children to play with something for so long. Instead of buying all the necessary equipment separately, there exist several portable kits which make the setup process quick and easy. So here they are, with ratings, prices and reviews:

Frequently asked questions:

  • How do kids get on the seat?   The ideal scenario is to have an elevated platform on the starting point but building that can be quite challenging – so most people use a stepladder firmly tied to the tree (see the videos above). Or if two people are using it, one can get on the seat on the lower end and the second drags him to the top using the rope hanging from the seat.
