"Our new adventure is for all ages - a 5-year-old will love our green courses, and a Marine will enjoy our black 'rough and tough' courses, while the rest of us can enjoy the in-between blue journeys," owner Roger Freedman said.
The attraction is located next to ZipLine Hilton Head at Broad Creek Marina.

In the wake of a challenging economy, local entrepreneur Roger Freedman sought to use the excess land at his Broad Creek Marina property and proceeded to create an adventure park to capitalize on the Island's strength as a regional destination.
Freedman's Zipline Hilton Head quickly established itself as one of Hilton Head Island's hottest attractions with its breathtaking journey through massive oaks and pine trees, looking out on the glistening creek. The Zipline's business success has led to the retention and creation of more than 50 jobs in the community. "Tourism is the lifeblood of the Island," said Freedman, Owner of Broad Creek Marina Adventures and Zipline Hilton Head. "I originally purchased the Marina back in 1993 and completed a huge expansion and renovation initiative that enabled us to add a number of both year-round and seasonal employees. Like most small businesses, the economic recession hit us hard in 2008, and I had to refinance our commercial loan in order to keep both the property, and even more importantly, my employees." As was the case for many business owners during the recession, getting a small business loan to capitalize on this opportunity was close to impossible; however, he was fortunate enough to secure hedge fund financing, which afforded him the opportunity to keep the property and maintain jobs for the community. As the economy started its slow recovery, Freedman needed an exit strategy to refinance an expensive bridge loan, as well as obtain financing to continue the expansion of the zipline attraction. What he found was local commercial lenders couldn't comprehend the success story of Zipline Hilton Head. That coupled with a limited operating history, Zipline Hilton Head was a risk that most lenders would shy away from having just emerged from the one of our nation's worst financial crisis. "Fortunately, I found Park Place Equity," said Freedman. "What I appreciate most about doing business with the Park Place Equity team is that they recognized the business I was building; Park Place Equity provided a commercial lending solution that refinanced a costly loan and provided expansion capital necessary to build on the Zipline's success." Freedman explained, "Park Place Equity helped uncover commercial lending solutions of which I wasn't even aware. The challenges other commercial lenders couldn't understand were the challenges that Park Place knew exactly how to mitigate because they understood what I was trying to accomplish. They streamlined the lending process in order to position the Zipline for success in a market that isn't very welcoming to new and unique businesses." The solution provided by Park Place Equity included refinancing the existing hedge fund loan, working capital and closing costs. "The relationship with Roger Freedman and Broad Creek Marina Adventures is exactly the reason Place Equity is in business," stated Jason Bengert with Park Place Equity.


How ZipLine Became a Top Hilton Head Vacation Attraction

The owner of ZipLine Hilton Head and Aerial Adventure Hilton Head, Roger Freedman, knows a lot about adversity.
In 1993, he purchased the Broad Creek Marina, Up the Creek Pub & Grill, and 9 adjacent acres of land. His original plan was to use this land to build a 37 lot housing development. During these challenging economic times, Mr. Freedman came to the conclusion that building a housing development was no longer a sound business plan. But the problem of needing to refinance a large commercial loan remained, to not only keep the real estate, but to keep his current employees working as well, which was very important to him. At first, Roger Freedman was unable to secure the necessary funding through local lenders, because they had difficulty seeing his vision and the potential of a facility such as ZipLine Hilton Head. Lenders were also extremely cautious, as the economy was slowly turning around, but remained sluggish. Then it happened! He located the financial backing needed to move forward with Plan B, and what a plan it was. As a result, Roger worked with an expert zipline course builder to protect the trees throughout the construction process, rather than destroy them. The Mayor, as well as other concerned parties, would soon have their concerns put to rest. The new ziplines were concealed in the canopy of existing trees, so that zipline riders would feel like they are flying through the tree tops. Then, Mr. Freedman hired an ecologist to educate his employees on the native plants and flowers, so that when guests began visiting ZipLine, they would all be experts on the local ecosystem. The employees were also fully trained in first aid, safety protocols, as well as other emergency situations which might arise. They also had to be well versed in Hilton Head Island's cultural and historical information, so that they could share their wealth of knowledge with future guests. ZipLine-Construction-Walk Bridge Fast forward to today, Roger Freedman's ZipLine Hilton Head and Aerial Adventure Hilton Head has won over all of those concerned about adding a zipline attraction to the community. In the time since ZipLine Hilton Head opened, Roger Freedman has also added a ropes adventure course on the property called Aerial Adventure Hilton Head.

After witnessing what the recent economic downturn had done to the his friends and neighbors, local entrepreneur Roger Freedman came up with a plan to retain and even create more than 50 jobs in the local community.
His plan would also create a regional eco-adventure that would attract more tourists to the area. He decided to leverage the excess land at his Broad Creek Marina property and create Zipline Hilton Head, the only attraction of its kind in the area. The breathtaking journey through massive oaks and pine trees, of looking out on the glistening creek, quickly established itself as one of Hilton Head Island?s most popular activities. ?Tourism is the lifeblood of the Island,? said Freedman, Owner of Broad Creek Marina Adventures and Zipline Hilton Head. ?I originally purchased the Marina back in 1993 and completed a huge expansion and renovation initiative that enabled us to add a number of both year-round and seasonal employees. Like most small businesses, the economic recession hit us hard in 2008, and I had to refinance our commercial into a high interest hedge fund loan in order to keep both the property, and even more importantly, my employees.? As the economy started its slow recovery, Freedman began searching for a way to refinance that expensive bridge loan, as well as obtain financing to continue the expansion of the zipline attraction. What he found was local commercial lenders couldn?t comprehend the success story of Zipline Hilton Head. That coupled with a limited operating history, Zipline Hilton Head was a risk that most lenders would shy away from having just emerged from the one of our nation?s worst financial crisis. ?Fortunately, I found Park Place Equity,? said Freedman. ?What I appreciate most about doing business with the Park Place Equity team is that they recognized the business I was building; Park Place Equity provided a commercial lending solution that refinanced a costly loan and provided expansion capital necessary to build on the Zipline?s success.?
