A colleague who was driving by the Davao Diversion Road pointed to me Accelerate, the Zipline. Zipline is a an uninterrupted suspended cable from a high point (200 meters) to a lower end.
A user is attached to a harness, positioned in a seated or lying position and pushed to the destination by gravity at a speed of about 100 kilometers per hour.
An arrester near the end controls the landing speed until the suspended person comes to a complete stop.
He asked if I'd like to see. Adventurous as I am I said, sure.
I was given an overview of the activity, given safety briefing, walked for 15 minutes to a 250 meter hill and then crossed the 750 meter line across a river in 25 seconds.
Done in less than 30 minutes.
Exhilaration in a dash.
