Who are we?
Little Rock Lake AB is a company owned by Jonas Grahn from Braås. He started the company in 2012 together with Håkan Blad. It took two years from the planning and building of the first lines, until the park opened. The park opened with 9 lines in total and a little reception. In two old military tents where place for dressing up the guests for the adventure and for a small café.
Nowadays we are Europe’s longest Zipline with more than 16 lines and more than 4 km lines in the forest. Our Base Camp is a lot bigger and has a restaurant such as accommodation.
Our Zipline guides are very important to us. We are very proud of all the good work they do when engaging with our guests, and the reviews on social media show how much they are appreciated. Most of the guides are young locals, but during the high season we bring in people from around Sweden and from other countries in Europe. The guides from other countries enable us to communicate in whatever language may be required during the adventures. One summer we had guides who spoke a total of 11 different languages.
The company is run by Jonas Grahn (CEO) and Peter Szabo (Vice CEO and Park Manager).
When I started the Little Rock Lake Zipline it was intended simply as a hobby. But it has grown into much more than that. Today it is a full-scale operation.
I'm around 30 years old and grew up locally, in Braås. I now live in Åseda. I started working for the Zipline in 2014. After doing a lot of different jobs in the construction phase I took over operational responsibility for the adventure park. I am a very active person. I train a lot and like to have several projects going on the same time. As the park manager, I am responsible for the day-to-day running of the company and the development work. It is a perfect job for me since I have a lot of different tasks and challenges every day.
Our goal is it to give our guests the chance to explore the forest, which is otherwise hard to access, in the course of an amazing adventure. We want them to learn new things about the forest and the countryside we are a part of. This, too, is very important to us.. We would like our guests to feel that a new chapter of their lives has been opened up. The Zipline is a transport system out into the wilds, offering people the best chance to explore nature.
