Frick! I almost peed myself just looking at it. I`ve got to try it. And what were those three big yellow things on the ground? School buses?

This looks damn fun, although from the person on the zip line`s point of view, it doesn`t seem exceptionally fast. My main issue would be my fear of heights, and when it seems to dip down rather low.

^^no... it would be a 200m high drop, followed by a painful drag through a few hundred metres on the ground. But yeah, if the line snaps while you`re up there, you better hope you break your neck first thing...

I only hated how little cameraman skills this guy has. Oh and the fact that you`re going 160kmh hanging from a wire almost 300m up in the air...

I don`t think I could go here. I`d get a heart attack lol

"how do they physically hang a line that long?!?!"
You tie the first end at the top of the mountain, grab the roll and start walkin` down until you get to the other anchor point.
The problem is not to HANG a line that long, but where to GET one!

I`ve done this before, but it was only 40 ft. up, and not nearly as long. Also, I was in a sitting position instead. It was awesome though. It makes you feel like you`re flying. =)

"

...

You don`t grab onto it with your hands.. Watch the start of the video and look at the harness their in.

If you did use your hands, you would probably be missing half of it by the end due to the rope slicing your fingers off.

I hate roller coasters and all that stuff and I am sure that being on that zip thingy it would be very scarey BUT it looked like it was going so slow, even though it was clocked at 100 mph.

i wonder who often they replace the lines because friction would slowly case the line to snap

Aweeesooommmeeee!!! It didn`t feel that fast, but man I think it`s probably the closest thing to self-propelled flight. At it`s long enough to be extremely enjoyable too. TELL ME MORE!

part of me wants to try it, part of me says drat no.

The video was kind of cool but the editing was crappy and half the video was from the pov of the guy on the line and he just aimed it at the ground the whole time.

I did this last month. Good fun. To answer some queries, they take you up by a truck, so no hiking, and there is a scaffold anchor tower at the end which holds the line, and skydiving is still more fun. Try and not go when it is windy because you get thrown around a bit. Otherwise visit South Africa to enjoy the fastest zip line and the highest bungee jump.

The stick was probably just to grab so that they could pull you to the disembarkment zone.

Looks hella fun and really unsecure. I`d love to do that. Once I managed to get together the uh... "Intenstinal fortitude" ;)

that thing is so steep! I`ve been on many zip lines, big ones too, but they don`t even compare to this.

Where is the other end of the zip line?! I couldn`t see any struts or buildings holding up the line at the bottom of the hill. It also looked to me that to get off, you need to wait for it to naturally slow down before moving backwards towards the people that you cross about half a mile back with the stick.

It seems very hard to get down off of though..xD
A stick? How does that work?
A ladder would be a better way to get down..

Anyway, I would love to try this.

It LOOKS awesome, but then again, so did that ride at Six Flags.

That ride cuts off feet, this ride cuts off hands.


I`d like to keep my hands, thanks.
