Zip-line, Misamis Occidental,Philippines

Last night I saw my brother upload the photos on his Facebook account. I was excited to see the photos of him and my nieces and nephew. They went to the first Zip-line in Misamis Occidental, located in Hoyohoy, Tangub City.

But what is a Zip-line?
zip-line (also known as a flying foxfoefie slidezip wireaerial runwayaerial ropeslidedeath slide or tyrolean crossing)[citation needed] consists of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel 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. Zip-line tours are becoming popular vacation activities, found at outdoor adventure camps or upscale resorts, where they may be an element on a larger challenge or ropes course.[1]

Hi Kim ~~ For sure I am too old for riding on a zip-line. I think they are fun but the riders had better be careful not to go too fast, fall off, or get burned by the line.
Happy Midweek Blues!

That sounds adventure. Hope the kids enjoyed the ride safely. I have seen it people used to cross rives in some movies. Thanks for the pictures, the backdrop mountains are breathtaking...
