Zip lines

Thursday, August 13, 2009

There are so many zip lines in Davao City, which you would really like to experience as they have different impacts on customers. What do I mean by this, yes, they are likely the same, according to Wikipedia A zip-line (also known as a flying fox, zip wire, aerial runway, aerial ropeslide, death slide or tyrolean crossing) consists of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to traverse from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable, usually made of stainless steel, by holding on or attaching to the freely moving pulley. Zip-lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment. They may be short and low, intended for child's play and found on some playgrounds. Longer and higher rides are often used as a means of accessing remote areas, such as a rainforest canopy.

But by meaning of different impact is how they design their zip lines, some can go as 70-120 kph, some can do superman, do tandem or sitting. So it is really a new breath taking feeling.

I have had the opportunity to do all the zip lines in Davao City. First stop, was in Camp Sabros, which was by so far the longest zipline I had tried. They have a superman zipline, where in you will have to lay down on your stomach and enjoy the view while you are transferred to another hill in less than 20 seconds. The coming back, is the most exciting part, since you will be in a cable car and you will be able to feel the air rocking your chair while you are in it. Cool, Isn’t it?

Second, was in Eden Nature Park, their zipline is different in Camp Sabros, since you will have to sit down. And while you are transported to another hill, you will see the view of Davao Gulf, which I definitely think is incredible.

The third one was in Outland Adventure, which offers a different variety of positions that you like to do. There are sitting, superman and tandem. I chose the superman as I want to feel the wind blowing on my face and I feel comfortable in that position.

Last but not the least, is in Samal, this is the zip-line that I want to do but wasn’t able to because at that time the owner closed the business. This one is different from the rest, because, instead of ending on another hill, you will be submerging into water. How is that? I think this would be the coolest of all the ziplines.

So if you are interested in all these zip-lines. Come and Visit Davao City.a
