The Zip Lines at Ouachita Bend wants you to not only have a "zipping good time," but we want you to be safe while you zip. To that end, we have met or exceeded all the standards set by ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology).

An arborist has checked and recommended the trees that are used on the course, and engineers have certified all the structural elements of the course. The guides have been trained to ACCT standards, and they are certified in American Heart Association CPR and First Aid. Our course has been inspected by the Arkansas Department of Labor.

The sag-tension analysis of the cable system was performed by an Arkansas Registered Professional Engineer who is an owner of Utility Technology Engineers-Consultants (UTEC).  The structural analysis was performed using similar principals as applied to electric transmission line designs, with the exception of adding participant weight to the line.
