Flight of the Gibbon resumes zip line trips

CHIANG MAI, 14 June 2019: Flight of the Gibbon Chiang Mai reopened last week after securing police clearance, almost two months after a fatal zip line accident on 13 April.

 

Police in Chiang Mai gave the green light for the popular attraction to resume bookings and sales of zip line packages that cost a minimum of THB4,199 for the two-hour ride through the treetops.

 

Unconfirmed reports blamed the accident on “metallurgic failure,” although the investigation report has not been officially made public.

So the police do safety inspections now!

That is not what the article said, this is...

“In addition to the November inspection (ACCT standards), a separate third-party inspection was completed and documented in March.  The zip line course was inspected again in May by an engineering firm, and layered redundant inspections are in place above and beyond what is required by law or ACCT standards. Flight of the Gibbon is fully licensed, insured and in compliance with all laws and regulations.”

Metallurgical failure analysis is the process by which a metallurgist determines the mechanism that has caused a metal component to fail.
