Next time you happen to be traveling up in Edmonton, Alberta, you might want to explore the West Edmonton Mall, North America's largest entertainment and shopping complex. At 5.3 MILLION square feet, it's the size of a small city, featuring two hotels, 10 attractions, 100 dining options and more than 800 retail stores.
If you've never taken a ride on a zipline before, here's a video that will give you a pretty accurate idea of what it's like. Of course, you won't be able to experience the sensation of speeding along at nearly 40 miles per hour, like you can at Smoky Mountain Ziplines. And you won't be able to feel the wind in your face. But this video does give you a feel for the sights and sounds that go along with taking a zipline adventure.
There's no doubt that the combination of ziplines, Smoky Mountains and a warm summer day adds up to a great way to spend a day. Ziplining has all sorts of benefits for the vacationer, including fun, adventure, beautiful scenery, fresh air and quality time with friends and/or family.
How's this for extreme? Imagine riding a zipline that is 2,000 feet tall, more than a mile long and reaches top speeds of nearly 90 miles per hour. If you'd like to give it a try, all you have to do is travel to Nepal, where this extreme zipline attraction recently opened in the Himalayas. Check out the video here:
