In Sun City, South Africa, they have what is supposedly the worldâ€™s tallest, longest, and fastest zip line. After watching this video, itâ€™s hard to doubt those claims, though they never do say itâ€™s the worldâ€™s safest.
In South Africa, the worldâ€™s highest swing is located in a place called Oribi Gorge. The jump takes you off of a 33-story waterfall, and lasts only a few terrifying seconds, but Iâ€™m sure the feeling is hard to beat. Check out the video (you might want to turn down your sound first):
