A little more than just ziplining
I have issues with vertigo, height and motion sickness so I took meclizine (aka Dramamine Less Drowsy) before going. The bus ride over to the site was fairly short and the driver told us a little history of the town and cracked a few jokes. Upon arriving, we switched to the Unimog, a converted military truck to take us to the top of the hill. This ride was actually a bit terrifying. You'll know when the terrifying part is coming up as the driver will shift to second gear.I was prepared to zipline and even let go of the cable. I did not expect that by the end I would be willing to try a flip off the platform! (They will not make you do anything you don't want to do but seeing a 60 year-old grandma flip might make you think.)I ziplined once before, in Costa Rica and while I felt that was safe, this felt far safer. The platforms are very large. You are ALWAYS connected to something. Except in the Unimog. unless you have a debilitating fear of heights, I highly recommend this.
