I was a camp counselor back in the late 90’s at a camp with a big surrounded by tall cliffs. We had what we believed to be the longest zipline in Colorado (or maybe even the US). It was 1/4 mile long and started about 200 feet above the lake- and went over the lake! The line had been driven across the frozen water during the winter. It was quite a ride. On weekends the guides would go up to the launching point and do all kinds of crazy things, such as harnessing ourselves in backwards and diving off the cliff superman-style. It was quite and incredible face-first ride out far over the water.

This one has it beat, though. The 100mph, 900 foot high zipline.
