zip line structure


well all good information , unfortunately I don't think I can make this work in my Yard within my Budget. In order to make a fairly level zip line run I would have to build two structures to anchor the line to since I don't have two trees to work with. its starting to look like I would have to sink a steel beam deep in concrete and then have a couple concrete piered anchor points for the guide wires.

Now you have me thinking about a zip line over my pool to the deep end

But I'd guess I need some strong support
Disney has the zip line to one side of the support

thats what I was thinking of doing but all the discussions above were how the kids would go flying when they hit the stop on the zip line. However its no big deal when you go flying into a pool
