When it comes to outdoor activities, weather plays a big part in whether you go outside or stay indoors. Most people will not go outdoors if it is raining, but some people take advantage of the opportunity. You are probably asking who would want to go outside while it’s gray and rainy out? Many people take advantage of rain and go ziplining. Even though it does not rain a lot here in North Carolina, rain makes ziplining all the more fun!
Of course, safety is a primary factor when you decide to go ziplining in the rain:
You don’t want to zipline when it’s storming or potentially going to be a severe storm.
Dress in appropriate clothing if you know you are going to be ziplining in the rain.
Every zipline course is different, so the rain will make every line feel and look different. Maybe you will be in a canopy, or in a wide open area where you can see wildlife hanging out. Remember getting rained on won’t ruin your day, it will just make it one hundred times better!
