Superfly In The News

By | SuperFly | No Comments

The story of how Superfly Ziplines was brought to life was recently featured in the North Shore News. Superfly Ziplines, launched July 1, 2013 was the result of “herculean efforts The Adventure Group (TAG) and its construction partners” to bring to life the vision of  the next generation of ziplining. “Our intent with Superfly was fairly simple,” says Kirby Brown, CEO. “It was about finding a way as closely as possible to simulate the sensation of flight. We weren’t designing the the ziplines to be the biggest, the longest, the highest or the fastest. Our intent was really, and still is, to evolve the product closer to the sensation and freedom you get from flying, so that really drove the design around line length and height and angulation.”

Superfly uses a hanggliding harness with a triangle control frame modified for ziplining. Riders are suspended under the line in the harness with the option to hold on to a bar or zip hands-free.

“A traditional zipline would have you in more of a climber’s harness which has a single point of connection and that means you don’t have a lot of control,” says Brown. “You get blown by the wind and you spin. We wanted people to have an element of control and participate in the experience without having this additional factor of having the sense of loss of control which really frightens people. I equate our harnesses to sitting in a comfortable fold-out lawnchair. We want people to see where they’re going – there’s not a lot of birds that look over their shoulder or behind them.”

It took two years for TAG to construct the lines and set up the new company with the grand opening taking place last Canada Day long weekend. Superfly Ziplines operates year round. Winter tours depart 8 times daily including nighttime dinner tours, featurng a three-course gourmet meal catered by Bearfoot Bistro, and server is a mountain top yurt before zipping back down the mountain.
