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.

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.
