Know Before You Go
- How does Foxwoods HighFlyer compare to other ziplines?
HighFlyer is the only zipline in Connecticut, New York, Boston, or anywhere else in North America that lets you fly from the top of a 33-story hotel tower and lands you on the ground nearly a mile away. Our zipline was created for all ages, and weights, this means that no two flights are the same. The landing crew is trained to retrieve a guest anywhere that you stop. There’s no other experience like it!

- How many ziplines are there at Foxwoods HighFlyer?
4 lines, on 1 long zipline run.
- I have a party of 4. Can we all go at once?
You all can be set up as a group, but you will not launch all at the same time. Lines 1 & 3 and 2 & 4 will be released.
- How long is the process?
Give yourself 45 minutes to an hour. If you have scheduled a flight online, then give yourself 15 minutes to weigh in and get your flight pass. Next, you’ll meet at Base Camp at your scheduled flight time. You’ll be escorted to the Flight School to get your safety class and gear, and be escorted to the roof to FLY! The shuttle from the landing pad back to the casino takes place every 15 minutes.
- What time should I arrive for my flight?
If you’ve scheduled a flight online, then arrive at the flight pass counter in Fox Tower garage rotunda for the weigh-in and to receive your flight pass 15 minutes before your scheduled flight time.
- What should I wear?
As long as your body parts that are touching the harness are covered, whatever you feel comfortable to sit in. IE: no swimsuits, or shirtless zipliners. Strapless, flip-flop shoes, and anything in your pockets that can fall off, or out, will be placed in the “flybag,” and fly with you. No high-heels are allowed. Eyeglass straps must be worn to secure any eyewear worn. We sell these if you don’t have one!
- Can I fall out of my harness?
No, as long as you follow safety procedures and instructions. The harness is connected at two points. You cannot go upside down or rotate anyway.
- How do I redeem my Mashantucket Pequot Museum ticket?
Your general admission Mashantucket Pequot Museum ticket will be given to you at the same time you get your flight pass for the zipline. Keep your receipt for proof of purchase. Please visit their website for hours of entry: http://www.pequotmuseum.org/
- Do I have to hang on the whole time?
You are required to hold on with both hands during the ride. You are not required to stop yourself or do anything but sit and enjoy the flight!
- Can I bring a camera/selfie-stick/phone on the zipline?
No. There are photos available for purchase. Any item that is a potential hazard for patrons below will be placed in a “flybag” and fly with you. IE: keys, cell phone, glasses without a strap to secure, wallets, etc. If you have a hands-free camera like a GoPro, you are good to wear your recording device.
- Do I have to climb stairs?
Yes. There are approximately 50 stairs you will have to climb to get to the take-off platform.
- Can I go tandem/with someone?
No, the harness is only designed for one person. This is for the safety of the guests and the crew.
- What if I have friends or family that want to watch me, but don't want to zipline with me?
The viewing shuttle will take guests to the landing pad at the museum approximately every 15 minutes. When you head to Base Camp to start your flight, your family can head to the shuttle. Then you all can come back together.
- Can I complete my waiver in advance?
You can complete the waiver before arriving to the ticket counter, to save time. Be advised ALL waivers must be completed, signed and dated on the day of your flight. If you complete the waiver on the wrong day (too early), you will be asked to sign a new one when arriving to the ticket counter.

- What's the cancellation policy?
No refunds will be given for cancellations within 24 hours, or if you do not show up for your zipline flight. If we can accommodate a reschedule for you, we will do so, but no guarantees.
