FFly like the wind on the world’s longest and fastest zip slide at the Sun City resort, but look out for traffic cops: because you’ll be exceeding South Africa’s freeway speed limit! With top speeds of 150km/h, if this ride doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping, then your heart has probably stopped.
It’s 280m high and 2km long, so you're guaranteed the ride of a lifetime when you head to North West province and try the Sun City zip line, or Zip 2000. Operated by Unreal, a world leader in the design, construction and use of extreme zip slides, Zip 2000 is officially the world's longest and fastest.
Travellers with a yen for extreme sporting adventures cannot afford to miss out on this phenomenal ride when visiting South Africa.
TThe Zip 2000 at Sun City adheres to all necessary safety standards and is certified by the Department of Labour. Secured in two harnesses and suspended below a free-running trolley attached to a steel cable, you'll experience the feeling of flying and enjoy amazing acceleration as you slide down the wire.
Solo and tandem slides are available for anyone over the age of 12, making this a fun family activity.
Dubbed 'a unique rope experience at length', the Zip 2000 takes the concept of the original ‘foefie slide’ (as zip lines are known all over South Africa) to extremes. In Australia and New Zealand, these slides are known as flying foxes, while in the United States they're called zip wires or aerial runways.
Sun City itself is the ultimate family holiday destination, boasting two world-class golf courses, tennis, squash, a variety of water sports and hot-air ballooning. Sun City is also an entertainment paradise, offering the Valley of the Waves Waterworld, an extravaganza theatre, casino, various cinemas and luxury retail outlets, and a range of world-class hotels, including the Palace of the Lost City.
