The start of the zip line adventure begins at Parola Park. The park is located on top of a hill overlooking the coast of Sablayan. Here is where the zip line’s jump-off point is. To get started, the zip line team gives the guests a safety briefing, hands out the gears, and they weigh each one to make sure that no one is beyond the 150 kilogram weight limit.
