This will give you all the information needed to plan, purchase and build a backyard zipline (and launch pad) without any specialized parts. I purchased everything at the local hardware stores. I did it 100% all by myself, and so can you.
Want to create a backyard zipline, don't know where to start? I was in the same situation recently and figured out how to do it with just a little bit of research. This project can be accomplished in just one weekend.
