Zip 2000 Zipline Ride
Longest Zipline South AfricaThe longest zipline in South Africa is the Pronutro Zip 2000 located at Sun City in the North-West Province of South Africa. The Zipline is 2000 metres long and 280 metres high and descends 918 feet at a speed of 100 mile per hour. Not only is it the longest zip slide but it is also the fastest in the world and is one of the most exhilarating adrenalin rushes you could have.
These slides are known differently all over the world; in South Africa they are known as Foefie Slides, in the USA as Zip Wires or Zip Slides, and in Australia and New Zealand they call them Flying Foxes. When you ride on the Zip 2000 you are secured in two harnesses and then suspended under a free running trolley attached to a steel cable. Clients are propelled from a koppie which is 280 metres high all the way to a mast 2km away. The feeling is one of flying through the air sometimes as low as 2.5 metres off the ground. You accelerate up to a speed of 150km per hour only slowing near the end when you go uphill before your roll backwards to a point where you can dismount. Clients can either ride solo on the Zip 2000 or they can fly tandem with a friend. There is an age restriction of 12 years of age.
Tours leave every two hours and can take up to 16 people on each tour. The 16 people can be made up of 10-12 sliders and 4-6 spectators. Spectators are charged a fee of R90.00 each. Bookings for the Zip 2000 can be made at the Sun City Welcome Centre Information Desk.
