Zip Line Tour Capacity
To ensure the optimum experience, the zip line tour has a maximum capacity of 22 people per tour time. Therefore, it is highly recommended to make reservations or call the park in advance to ask about availability. During rainy season accommodating walk-ins is easier, but during high season it can’t be guaranteed that there will be space available at the desired tour time. So, if you are looking for a specific tour time and are coming with a group of people, make sure to reserve the zip line tour time in advanced.
*Note*: If a reservation doesn’t show up 20 minutes before the time slot, Diamante reserves the right to release the reserved spaces and fill them with the waiting list.
