The World’s Fastest Zip Wire Is Here

Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah! There’s an awesome 700ft zip wire coming to London tomorrow and whilst we’ve got a whole load of vertigo writing this it does look like a laugh. The fun comes from Zip Now London who love to induce butterflies and strap you into harnesses. If you’re not an adrenaline junkie and need various incentives to getting zipping then know that it’s the biggest, fastest city centre zip wire in the world – it looks set to take you to new heights, that’s for sure.

If you’ve not yet managed to clamber up The Shard or ride The London Eye then why not take in the heights of London on this zip? Ascend 35 metres up, grab a glance at the city and then leap off and reach 30mph as you descend 225 metres. Yahoo!

Who needs a car, bus or tube when you can traverse London at up to 5okm/h on this outlandish zip? It’s the easiest way to pop to the office, Captain Jack Sparrow-esque, and, if you’re feeling up for it you can opt for the Mega Drop at the end where simple, slow gradients are a no-no and a crazy zoom to the finish is a hell yes!

Instagram will boil over with excitement as you grab photos of yourself dangling in front of the London eye and racing down the wire in 30 seconds. If you’re a pundit for a bit of Stealth at Thorpe Park and racing across things at record speeds then this zip won’t disappoint.

The Zip Now wire will arrive on the 12th of June at Archbishop’s Park, SE1 7LE. If you’re feeling gutsy the book now right here!
