The State of Wisconsin does not currently regulate zip lines but has had a proposal in committee since 2009. It is estimated that they will eventually add zip lines to their list of regulated rides.

In Wisonsin there is currently no Zip Line regulation or state oversite. It is your duty as an organization to follow industry standards and maintan compliance as no state entity is required to. You must hire a 3rd party inspector to perform a hands on inspection of your zip line in the State of Wisconsin.
