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.

The Seven Falls Zipline in Lake Sebu, Cotabato, Philippines offers breathtaking views of the surrounding¬†forest… if you can keep your eyes open. It has 2400 ft. long and 1500 ft. long routes, both at nearly¬†600 ft. high.

Because snow bowling wasn’t enough fun, Devin Supertramp and his pals decided to combine the activities of ziplining and sledding into a single thrilling sport. We think this is the way they should start the Olympic luge and skeleton.
