I would do that! It looks like a blast! I've done some ziplining in Mexico before which was pretty epic. Very Happy

I am a big crybaby chicken when it comes to things like this and roller coasters.  I wouldn't get on that thing!  Ok, maybe I would if my life depended on it or if I were to get like a couple million dollars.  But, my feet like staying on the ground.

Oh I would certainly do it. But then again I have exited high velocity aircraft while in flight.

I don't think that I could ever jump from a perfectly good airplane.

I don't think I'd trust a zipline that has that much movement every time somebody does the run.

Sometimes the rigid ones are even worse. Sometimes the movement is a good way to disipate energy with causing undue stress on the supports and connections. With this system there are a lot of cable supports so it's likely that if one fails they won't lose a rider....as long as they get it fixed right away. However, with any kind of "ride" it is necessary to perform periodic inspections of the system to help ensure the safety of the riders.

Some movement is necessary.  That one looks like the tree branches they have it connected to might break.  (c:

Looks awesome, but I wonder how my 200 pound frame would do on all that bouncing around. Either way, if there was one nearby I would do it today!

I'm with you, Jim.  Even if I wasn't a big cry baby fraidy cat, my chiropractor would love me for a few weeks after that.  Heck, I was sore for two weeks after our last trip to Disneyworld from the coasters.
