Around the Globe in Zip Lines

Dragon’s Breath Flight Line

Although it’s located in Labadee, Haiti, this zip line is only available to cruisers who travel with Royal Caribbean International – it’s one of their most popular shore excursions. There are two zip lines located in Labadee. First, visitors ride the smaller “Little Dragon,” which gets people both acclimatized and excited for the larger ride to come.

In order to ride the “Dragon’s Breath” line, visitors have to ride a safari vehicle to the peak 500 feet above the beach, where they’re strapped in and fitted with safety equipment. Then, they make the jump, and are transported over 2,600 feet at speeds of 40-50 mph to the beautiful white sand beach below, landing at Dragon’s Breath Rock.

Jaguar Cave Flight Line

Another zip line that is exclusive to the Royal Caribbean International cruise line is Jaguar Cave Flight Line, located in Belize City, Belize. It’s one of the most unique zip lines in the world because riders are transported through an intricate system of dense jungle and 100-foot-high caves while they’re flying through the air at top speed.

The zip line excursion also includes a hike through the jungle to reach the cave, where visitors can check out the amazing flora and fauna unique to this part of the world.

Mokai Gravity Canyon’s Flying Fox

This incredible zip line, located in Taihape, New Zealand, is unique because it’s structured in a way that allows riders to zip through the air on their stomachs, like Superman. The line is located 600 feet above the Rangitikei Canyon, which affords amazing views of the riverbed below.

Plus, the zip line pushes you back and forth a few times along the 3,600-foot track, before you eventually come to a stop in the middle. Then, the staffers pull you back towards the beginning, so you can wait in line to start it all again!
