Zipline once means of transportation now means of extreme activities. There aren't enough recordings about the history of this means of entertainment where it was built or who first built it. In ancient times, zip line served as a bridge across rivers or to carry supplies, even foods from one mountain to another mountain.
But fortunately, the centuries passed people started to think better ideas and created bridges, and a lot of extreme lovers couldn't resist themselves and not to try this amusement. And now it is considered to be one of the best ways to pass active rest and to get moments full of adrenaline.
