I would like to try zip-lining, but I am a bit scared. Is it really hard? I am not that strong or athletic, just average 44 years old. Any replied will be appreciated.

Some zip lines are known to be fast cables, some others are known to be easy going. But in general they can be done by anyone.

Go for it!!!!

DH and I did the newest zipline in North America in August - it's in Whistler, B.C. It was really great fun and nothing to be scared of. I'm 57 and hubby is 62. We plan to do it in Costa Rica.

I just turned 55 and did the Jungle Breezes zip line in April. Had a great time and would do it again in a second. Had no trouble at all and felt completely safe. One hint, buy your tee shirt before you leave the sign up area. I thought I could get one afterwords and was wrong.
