Zipline Number 2 – The Original Zipline

Our original zipline is a bit smaller than our 12m high zipline. Choose the zipline as one of your activities on a Half or Full Day Adventure

When at the very top of the Zip Line you stand 5m above the ground, looking down through the forest to your landing spot, you soar through the air for 100 metres. As you descend you pick up speed you zip through the trees and fly over those below you.

Upside down zipline

There is lots of fun to be had and different tricks to be performed, including the pencil (going upside down), the star and superman, as you fly down towards the landing area. Can you think of any other tricks to be performed?

As you fly through the air you can look out across the rest of the course. You can see the people below you look tiny from your height. And what’s even better is that you can have as many goes as you like on the zip line depending on your group size.

If you are scared of heights don’t let this deter you, as our extremely experienced staff have grown accustomed to dealing with this phobia and will take the extra time that is need with you to reassure you that you are safe and won’t fall, if you do finally decide to have a go. Throughout our lifetime here at Loughcrew we have helped many people with a phobia of heights to overcome this fear as they have taken the “leap of faith” to have a go. When you have jumped once than you will run back to go again!
