Solid course, solid experience
Hello Zip Away Fans!
We have been busy on edits for Season 2 (sort of).
We've developed an hour long Episode called "Down The Line". It features a recap of Sea...son 1 with clips and additional content not seen in Season 1-9 episodes. It's about 95% done and we are going to add some new music and sounds in from John Payne once he is off tour. By the way, John Payne is on stage now in Oklahoma performing with The Rock Pack!
Second, we have been creating some video shorts (approx. 15-20 mins. each) which are rough, vintage footage from back in the days we did technical training videos for a DVD series we had developed. This series is entitled "Zip Away - Pieces" These are being slowly launched on the Professional Ropes Course Association (PRCA) www.prcainfo.org in the members section. They are less about the day-to-day dealings of EBL, but more focused on training, materials, and our practices for safety [our foundations]. These are also great for any current program that would like to see how a vendor trains and the detail behind the rational for what we do. Pieces E1 is completed, and Pieces E2 and E3 are about 65% done.
Regular Season 2 episodes of Zip Away! are set to be launched sometime late February, early March. All current Season 1 episodes are online at www.ZipAwayTV.com.
Hello Adventure Fans -
Come see what we've been up to this fall, getting ready for the May 2018 adventure season. 600 acres of zipping and outdoor adventure p...leasure, just minutes from McCall Idaho. Pristine views of Jughandle, Twin Sisters, and Boulder Mountains. See Brundage and the Seven Devils Mountains as well. Close by yet feeling far away. Brought to you by EBL, original installers of Zip Tamarack, Zip Boise, and Horseshoe Bend. Now, Zip McCall Adventures!
We are proud to announce that we have signed with Real Big Hits (RBH) out of (LA and NY) to promote and sell our project! RBH plans on presenting our show at t...he upcoming MIPCOM conference it Cannes, France, in October! With a projected 14,000 attendees and 4,800 worldwide buyers, we have our fingers crossed. We might get commissioned and get a real producer to help us increase our production value or I'm told these more authentic style shows are starting to gain industry traction. Wish us luck! 👍
EBL is excited to be to be hosting our third EBL Summit conference this July 15-17. It is open to select EBL operated tours and licensed locations all across t...he United States. This years Summit will be hosted in Eagle River Wisconsin. Past Summits were at Zip Orlando in 2013 and Zip Tamarack in 2011.
Held every three to four years, these Summits bring together professionals from EBL affiliated courses and other industry professionals to discuss and share best practices, industry trends, training and certification of guides, new products, success stories, marketing, reservation systems, professional development, customer service, guide / customer care, legal issues, and inside data from the EBL properties. Attendance is by invitation only. Requests for invitations may be sent to <firstname.lastname@example.org>

Announcing EBL Patent Technology...
We are proud to announce that EBL has recently secured a U.S. Patent on multi-cable zip line technology. Our U.S. Patent (No. 8,985,028) allows us to create zip line towers with more than one zip cable extending from a platform, allowing for multiple guests experiences, side by side zipping, at the same time. It also allows for adjustment devices on the cable, making for tension adjustments of the zip line cables themselves.
If you are a ...current operator or a contractor interested in licensing the technology for use or installation, please, contact our corporate office for further information:
Experience Based Learning
Currently operating courses that demonstrate voluntary compliance, not for profits, and other non-commercial uses will receive priority considerations for license free agreements.
