How to Build a Backyard Zipline


Have your kids been dreaming of ziplining? My kids first started begging me to build them a zipline after not meet the height requirement in Hawaii. With safety always my #1 concern about building a backyard zipline, two years later, I discovered the secret of Slackers Zipline Kits!



When I saw the online video, I thought it was too good to be true, but I could not resist getting one for our backyard. I could not contain the excitement while waiting for the box to arrive. The neighborhood kids were all over when I walked inside with the box, and the minute that the lid of the box opened, my house filled with screams of excitement.



We dropped everything that we were doing to start installing the zipline in our backyard. My husband thought that it would take hours to install the zipline, but he had it ready for fun in less than an hour.


The kit came with everything that we needed to install, including a seat for added safety. Since we did not have two big trees in our backyard, we installed it from one tree and then over to the kids play fort.


Then it was time for the fun to begin. The kids ziplined for the entire day, and into the night. The minute that the kids came home from school, all of their neighbor friends would come running over to play on it.


While most outdoor toys are exciting the minute the kids get it, and they quickly get bored, my kids have not stopped loving their zipline. Three weeks later, and they still spend all of their time in the backyard flying around.


If you have been wanting to get your kids to stop playing video games, and get outside to play, then this toy is the answer. Your kids will forget about all of their electronical devices and start doing what little kids should do – go outside and play!


Where can you find it? They are available online starting at $79.99.

  1. It looks like your husband attached the end where the swings hang from. We have this exact play set. It seems like that would be too tall for the kids to get off at the end? Or do they stay on until it slides back down the line a bit to get off?
