    You stop it by using a provider that does this safely. In other words:

    Yeah, that. The outfit we used on Kauai (which we loved) did this; the landing-end staff member would radio the sending-end staff member when the line was clear. Until that word comes through, the next person on the line is tethered to the departure platform, so even if they get excited and try to go, they are not going very far.

    I love to snorkel- though I never have an opportunity to. But no way would I scuba dive. Too claustrophobic.

    You misunderstood. What I meant by I don't know how you could stop it, was not speaking of the business. I was speaking of the poor guy who must have seen his wife coming up rapidly, i.e., how could HE stop himself from smashing into her.

    Most zip lines that I have been on have provided you with a heavy leather glove, which you use to grab onto the steel zip line to slow yourself down. Admittedly, it's mostly useful toward the end, as the line flattens out, to slow down before hitting the tower. If he were in a steep section, I doubt he could grab the line hard enough to be effective. Though it could have helped marginally.

    ETA - you can see it in the picture in the original post. The lady is grabbing the line with her right hand, wearing a heavy leather glove.

    So sad........

    I have always wanted to try it but are we safe anywhere? Doing anything? I like to think when it's our time to go, it's our time.

    As I get older, instead of taking more risks/chances, I am becoming a big chicken............one day I am brave and one day, "no thanks"

    Same here. We have been on many zip lines and every operator has made sure the person in front reaches the platform before letting the next person go. I think the operator screwed up.
