Bah humbug. This Night Riderz glowing version of Slackers' backyard zip line kit has a 150-pound max carry weight. So after you pay for it, you unpack it, and you spend your entire Sunday off installing the 100' steel cable and LED saucer seat across the lawn you just mowed, the only people who are going to be able to take the zip line for a spin are your kids. Come on Slackers! Don't you know there are plenty of parents who would like to maybe have a few beverages and then head out back for a late-night flying rave too?

The Night Riderz zip line kit divvies 50 multicolored LED between its seat, rope, and trolley. The cable is designed to slow to a gradual stop at the end, so no brakes are necessary (unless, perhaps, you exceed that weight limit.) And despite my yapping above, Slackers says because the zip line's trolley arrives fully assembled, and the kit includes thorough instructions, installation should take only about 30 minutes.
