The zipline has been around for almost 2,000 years, dating back as early as 250 BC and has been used as a means of transport in some mountainous countries, although not all structures fitted the description of the zipline. The more conventional zipline as we know it today was created in the 1970s by wildlife biologists as a means to explore the dense rainforests in remote areas without disturbing the environment.
