Woman's Zip Line Experience Doesn't Exactly Go As Planned1m34s

Woman's Zip Line Experience Doesn't Exactly Go As Planned

When it comes to zip lining it can be a bit scary and there's always the small chance that something may go wrong. This lady proves it - and it's hilarious! The woman went with her kids to a zip line for some adventure time, but the adrenaline and the exhilaration made her forget the crash course they give you at the start. So as soon as she approaches the end of the line, the spring pad, which is an emergency arrest device approved by the The Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT) for every rider’s ultimate safety. That all would have been great, if the woman’s speed under her weight didn’t press the spring pad to the max. And you know what happens when a spring get pressed all the way down - it has to come right back up, sending the woman back up the line! The only problem here is the line goes up and the spring doesn’t have enough force to return the rider to the beginning of the line. So now she is stranded in the middle of it. And it is a looong way down from there. Both her kids and the instructors keep yelling at her to grab the line in order to drag herself back down. Our guess is she will never get on that thing again! Thanks for the laughs, Penny!

Jackass Mountain is a famous peak on Highway 1 in British Columbia. It is known for the steep plunge that leads down from the road to the river below.

One of the steepest and longest descents on the whole highway, this stretch of road took Dave almost half an hour to climb and only three minutes to come down.

The gorgeous scenery whips by, along with oncoming cars and even a pedestrian as he makes his way down. During the entire descent, not a single car passes because he is travelling at almost the speed limit. What an insane experience. Remember, do not try this at home.
