Most ziplines go in a straight line from point-to-point. But Tom Scott recently dropped by Holmes Solutions‘ to check out a zipline that bends into corners. It still uses a cable to guide riders, allowing for long straights and twisty bits, much like a race track or a rollercoaster.
If flying down a zipline isn’t thrilling enough, Skywalker Adventure Builders‘ crazy ride suspends a bendy track from an overhead structure, adding twists and turns to the mix. We’re not sure if it’s made by the same guys, but this one in Australia is 2.5 mi. long.
A basejumper takes the most harrowing route to his jump-off point as he slides down a treacherous stretch of cable that nearly takes his fingers off as he picks up speed. Might we suggest a pair of gloves? And jump from some place safe, like the top of a skyscraper.
