The zipline is the adrenaline equivalent of a sports car whipping around the Autobahn.
And unlike the others, this one starts you with a little baby zip (200 feet long) at ground level, to get you accustomed to the feeling — like a lame bunny slope.
From there, you hop into the ski resort’s stand-up gondola and climb 1,040 feet for the remaining three ziplines. Each one crosses over a lake, though not at particularly zooming speeds, so the whole experience is more of a unique-perspective sightseeing trip, but not a major adrenaline wave. Each ride lasts less than a minute.
Instead of getting to hurl your own body over the edge, you’re released by a mechanism, and instead of having to brace yourself for a manual stop, the resort uses a big spring-loaded device to catch you.
