Around the Globe in Zip Lines
There aren’t a lot of places in the world that could get away with building a massive zip line right over their city, with a launch pad in the shape of a slot machine. If you’ve guessed Las Vegas as the location of this ridiculously entertaining zip line, you are correct!
SlotZilla features two separate zip lines – the zipline, and the zoomline, both of which whisk you across the city at speeds of up to 40 mph. The zoomline is double the height of the zipline, and riders are strapped in Superman-style, so they have the best view over the city. Flyers take off from the SlotZilla launch pad, and travel 1,750 feet across Fremont Street to a platform near the city’s Golden Gate.
Flight of the Gibbon
This amazing zip line is not only an exhilarating experience, it’s also educational, with proceeds going to benefit local conservation efforts. Flight of the Gibbon is located within the jungles of Thailand. They have a few different locations in Chiang Mai, Pattaya, and Bangkok, too.
Visitors are instructed in the art of zip lining, but instead of just going down one straight line, they use zip lines to traverse the jungle, stopping along the way to rappel deeper into the trees and learn about the local animal population. 10% of the money you spend at Flight of the Gibbon goes directly to protecting gibbons and their forest home.
