What's flying fox? In the US, we call it "zip line." Although I'm scared of heights, I didn't let it stop me from participating. In fact, I enjoyed the obstacle course a lot, but after two courses, it was enough for me! It wasn't only a zip line adventure, but an obstacle course with nets, tunnels, and more. It was tough and after completing the second course, I definitely did not want to continue on the more difficult courses: red and black. I was already tired, bruised, and I hit my head. It's a rough course, but a lot of fun. I was exhausted.
Although professionals help you put on the harness, the rest is all up to you. You are taught how to hook yourself up to a cable cord safely, then you are expected to begin zipping away.
I thought it was interesting that we had to pray before beginning the course!
The course itself was within a wooded area. When "flying" through the woods, I felt I would nearly hit a tree or two because of how close our cable line was to our surroundings. If I had been larger, I am sure I would have hit a tree! The twists and turns of the course, however, made it even more exciting.
I even had to crawl in a tunnel high up in the air and use a net to get to the other side of an obstacle, which felt almost impossible as I looked down below. I was stuck in the air and it took me nearly 15 minutes to get across with the help of a friend, telling me how to move step-by-step, until I made it safely to the next tree platform.
I was completely ready to take a break but there was no way of getting down. I could not get down, but had to zip across two more cable lines before I was finished with the course. The first time, I made it across the cable line safely. The second time, however, I ended up hitting my head, as my foot slipped when I was trying to stop myself from hitting a tree. At that point, I was more than ready to take a break.
I wish I had more photos, but this is the only one I have at the moment. It is a blurry photo of me, zip lining down from a tree to the other side.
