"Ocean Zip" Offers New Zipline Adventure
June 07, 2012
The new "Ocean Zip' launched this season by Southeast Exposure's Rainforest Ropes and Zip Park
In describing the adventure, zippers launch form the terrace pad skimming below the forest canopy just above the rainforest floor and as the terrain falls away, zippers then soar out to the Ocean Zip platform which is perched 50 feet above the water. This unique vantage point offered by the Ocean Zip adventure will offer zippers an eagle-eye view of the Inside Passage. Once zippers leave the Ocean Zip platform, zippers will then glide over the tidal zone viewing the wildlife as well as any boaters below.
Rainforest Ropes and Zip's builder and operator Jared Gross said of the new "Ocean Zip", "Get out here, it's a supernatural fun feel. The ocean platform is the new highlight of Rainforest Ropes and Zips. I figure it's one of the best thrill rides one can have without burning fossil fuels."
With this new addition, Rainforest Ropes and Zip Park now has 9 ziplines, 8 different challenge elements across tree platforms, and a fifty-foot climbing tower as well as experienced and trained guides to assist guests. The adventures offered by the Rainforest Ropes and Zip Park are optional and made for everyone from 70-285 pounds.
Southeast Exposure's Rainforest Ropes and Zip Park is locally owned and operated by long time Ketchikan residents, Betsey Burdett and her son, Jared Gross. Established in Ketchikan, Southeast Exposure also provides guided sea kayaking shore excursions, kayaking lessons in and around Ketchikan, bike trips, rentals, and much more.
Southeast Exposure's Rainforest Ropes and Zip Park is located 14 miles north of Ketchikan on 5 acres in the beautiful Clover Pass area, just beyond Knudson Cove on Potter Road.
