Out of Africa Wildlife Park owners Dean and Prayeri Harrison, William S. Jump and Arizona Zip Line, LLC principals Robin D. Bryer and Edward White celebrated an early-morning ground breaking ceremony for a new attraction at the Park, The Predator Zip Line Safari.
The Predator Zip Line Safari will be completed this spring. It is an eco-tour of five zip lines that zigzag from the Park's highest point to its lowest.
Zip-liners will fly from a 75-foot platform over predator habitats. Half inch wires suspended from successive towers will guide riders through the Park's venues. A roped bridge that connects towers, midway through the tour will add to the thrill of the ride. The final leg is a 1,000-foot zip over the Serengeti and Masai Mara areas of the park. In addition to the eco-tour, there will be two, 1,000-foot, single line zip rides that parallel the final eco-tour zip.
The routing of the zip line was the creation of the park owner Dean Harrison. Local engineering firms conducted the soil testing and the structural design of the lines and towers. Top industry experts were consulted for the overall design of the attraction. These experts will also assist in the construction of the towers and the setting of the lines. Much of the actual construction will be performed by some of the area's finest local contractors.
When complete and operational, The Predator Zip Line will employ over 20 employees. These jobs will include administration, drivers and zip line tour guides.
Bryer and White are residents of Columbus, Ohio. They are excited to be part of the Verde Valley and are anticipating the creation of an attraction that will be exciting, informative and ecologically friendly.
