A zip line consists of a pulley suspended on a stainless steel pulley and mounted on a slope. This is also known as zip wire, aerial runway (in UK), flying fox (in Australia and New Zealand), or foefie slide (in South Africa). It is designed to enable cargo or a person to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable by attaching to the freely moving pulley accelerated by Gravity. Zip Line is not confined to adventure sport, recreation, or tourism, but many mechanical actions do take advantage of this.
Zip-lining is an extremely popular activity and many people have safely completed this activity. Many people are crazy about this love doing it all the time. Its a hobby to them.
The height of cables varies from 30ft (9m) to as high as 200ft (61m), and can cover distances of over 1500 ft (457m). The average speed is around 50 km/h and 60 km/h. The world’s longest zip line is in Nepal which is almost 1.8km or 1.1mi from one end to the other. It is also the tallest with a vertical drop of 2000ft or 610m. It is considered to have a top speed of 120 km/h or 75 mph.
Equipment include Helmet, harness, leather gloves (so that the user can bring himself/herself to a halt).This activity or hobby is perfect for those seeking doses of adrenaline rush. Jumping off the platform is the scariest part. However you just need to fight your natural instincts and trust in your guides and gear to jump, and you are sure to love it. You’ll feel completely free as zip over the trees, gravity pulling you, the wind blowing in your hair and your feet suspended below. Once you do the first ride, you are sure to be wanting to keep doing this adventure every time.
