Ziplining

This is another option for you to get that amazing flying feeling. A zip line consists of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable, usually made of stainless steel, by holding on or attaching to the freely moving pulley. The good thing about ziplining is that it is quite common around the world, you don’t have to travel to some other country to go on this journey. Also they are cheap, and of course the rides are very safe and easy to use. The users are physically attached to the cable by wearing a harness which attaches to a removable trolley. A helmet is required on almost all courses of any size, also thick purpose-built leather gloves are highly recommended. A user can always be stopped with a hand brake at the end of the zip line which is operated by someone else. Some zip lines are used for true transportation value while others are purely for recreation and amusement. You only live once, so I advise you to go with a couple of friends and experience this phenomenal feeling. Below you can see some more ziplining photos along with a video of the longest and fastest zip line.
