Last week, we talked about a web article entitled The World's 6 Most Insane Ziplines, and we presented thumbnail descriptions of three of the attractions, which are located all over the globe. This week, we'll close it out with information about the other three places for extreme zipline fun.
Zip 2000, South Africa
This zipline stretches out for more than one mile and is considered one of the fastest lines in the world, with average speeds of 75 miles per hour and top speeds of 115 miles per hour! You even have to place a fin between your legs to make sure you stay flying straight.
Miss Sky Canopy Tour, Costa Rica
This attraction is actually very similar to our Pigeon Forge zipline tours in that its north tour offers 21 separate lines totaling seven miles in length. Top speeds are about 30 miles per hour, but you ride through waterfalls and jungles as you go from mountaintop to mountaintop. The south tour reaches speeds of up to 40 miles per hour, like the longer lines on our own canopy tour.
AdrenaLUNA, St. Lucia
What makes this zipline unique is that it's only open three days a month, to coincide with the full moon. You ride it in the middle of the night, and the adventure also includes trekking through a rainforest, walking over some floating steps, swinging from a rope and rappelling to base camp. The zipline itself is about 1,800 feet long, with a top speed of 25 miles per hour.
