Why Hire a Zip Line Accident and Amusement Park Accident Attorney?
The latest trend across the country seems to be zip lines- wires that hang in the sky which people can fly across with the help of a harness. Speeds can reach 50 to 60 mph and some lines are hung hundreds of feet off of the ground. Others fly over dangerous rocks or animals.
Statistics estimate 18 million people a year will use commercial zip lines, but few are aware there is little or no state or federal regulations regarding these amusement devices. Nationally, there has been 50 percent growth in the zip line industry recently. The Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) notes there were 320 sites in the US and Canada with zip lines in 2011.
