4K HD memories on camera
If you want to fly but don’t have the bravery for parachute jumping or BASE jumping, ziplining is a fun, safe alternative. With lines that range from 30 meters to more than 1,5 km, locations around the world offer an unbelievable variety of great opportunities to try it out. Fly at speeds up to 160 km/h over rivers and mountains, past volcanoes. You can capture your 4K HD videos on one of our sports camera.
Icy Straight Point, Alaska
Icy Straight Point in Hoonah, Alaska is a common stop for cruise shops touring the region. They claim the zipline, the ZipRider, is the largest in the world, and it’s definitely a daunting ride, running more than a mile, with a 390 m vertical drop over a 90-second ride. Six riders take off simultaneously on parallel lines, and race to the bottom. Built in 2006-2007, the zipline offers an average speed of 95 km/h, though the record is 130.
It features a fantastic view. Riders fly over Hoonah’s tree-covered mountains and the ocean below. The ZipRider can handle nearly 400 riders in a day. If you are in Alaska you cannot afford to miss this ride and make some great 4K HD videos.
Gravity Canyon, New Zealand
In New Zealand, you’ll find Mokai Gravity Canyon’s Flying Fox. This zipline turns the activity on its head by turning riders over onto their stomachs, flying parallel to the ground far below. The Flying Fox runs 1 km and the Riders hit 160km/h.
Flying like the Man of Steel makes it easy to appreciate flying through the Rangitikei Canyon, over the riverbed nearly 180 meters below. The zipline then runs under a bridge and up towards a cliff face. The Flying Fox isn’t a one way system; you roll back and forth a few times (so you really have the time to look around), until you stop in the middle. Then the crew pulls you back in, so you can get back in line to do it again.
Flight of the Gibbon, Thailand
The zipline is just one part of the adventure tours offered by Flight of the Gibbon in Thailand. Rather than one long, exhilarating ride, the tour involves ziplining between treetop platforms, and rappelling descents, where you can get some great 4K HD videos with one of the GeekPro cameras. Unlike most of the ziplines here, Flight of the Gibbon focuses on being educational as well as fun.
Visitors learn about the local animals on the animal safari tour and Thai culture with a village home stay. With locations in Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Pattaya, you can zip your way through the country.
