Am I eligible to do the zip line in Rak ?


A participants height is a major deciding factor and the eligible body weight range is between 40 kilos and 130 kilos. Anyone with a weight above or below this range will not be eligible to use the zip line. This is because just like the weather, a participants bodyweight also plays a major role in the quality of their experience. The minimum height of a participant should be 122 cm. Participants who are below 18 years of age but meet all the eligibility criteria can ride the zip line alone. However, they need to bring along a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian and must be accompanied by either one of the two to the facility. Additionally, the participant should have a good medical background and should not be under the influence of spirits, narcotics or anyother substance that impairs the participant's judgement skills.
