+ What is Zip lining?

Zip lining is an activity where passengers ride down sloped cables suspended in the air after tethering themselves to their harnesses. Gravity propels you from top to bottom.

+ WHEN IS ZIP LINE SEASON?

The Sleeping Giant Zip Line operates daily from June 15th through September 15th from 9AM to 6PM each year.

+ HOW FAST DOES THE ZIPLINE GO?

Depending on your weight you can reach speeds up to 35 mph.

+ ARE THERE AGE, HEIGHT OR WEIGHT RESTRICTIONS?

Minimum height is 48" and maximum height is 7'8". Minimum weight of 50 lbs and a maximum weight of 265 lbs to safely ride the zip line.

+ WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

Dress for the current weather forecast. We do operate in the rain. However, the course will be closed if there is lightning or high winds in the vicinity. Advance notice may not be possible.

Jewelry, cellphones, and wallets are best left locked up in your car. Sleeping Giant LLC is not responsible for property lost, damaged, or stolen during your adventure. A leash is recommended for sunglasses, hats, and other personal items.

You must wear closed toed shoes. No flip flops!

+ DO YOU HAVE FOOD? DRINKS? COLD BEER?

We do! You can dine in Betty’s Grill from 11am-3:30pm. Entrees include sandwiches, salads, and daily specials. Hot and cold drinks available. We also have plenty of snacks to get you through the day: nuts, yogurts, hummus, string cheese, chips, pudding, candy, and ice cream.

If you are looking for an adult beverage to quench your thirst, you can do so in the T-Bar. Tucked in the attic of our lodge sits Wyoming’s smallest bar. The T-Bar carries both beer and wine – including beer brewed right in Wyoming. So don’t be shy to ring the “beer bell” – we promise it doesn’t mean you have to buy everyone a round. But if you want to, be our guest (wink wink).

+ CAN I RIDE THE ZIP LINE IF I AM PREGNANT?

It is not recommended for expectant mothers to ride the zip line, but that is your decision and you must sign a liability waiver.
