Zip line tips

• When you jump off the platform, it is fine to scream. You're jumping off a 45-foot platform and zooming through the trees. If you're not screaming, something is wrong with you.

• You'll be tempted to hold on to a rope connected to the zip line. Don't hold it. You'll feel more like you're flying and less like you're holding on for dear life.

• Don't be afraid to go down backward; you won't crash into the next platform. Plus, it's cool to see the platform you jump from get smaller and smaller as you zoom away from it.

• Don't let fear hold you back. Once you've started the course, there's not really an opportunity to get back to the ground until the midway point. Just enjoy it. It's one of the few times in your life you'll feel like you're flying.

• Bring a camera, but don't drop it. It will be lost forever.

• When they ask you to make a pose in midair, just do it. Of course you'll look ridiculous. But you already look ridiculous in a harness.
