My friend just invited me to go for a zip line. A zip line is a kind of..flying into the air from the end to the other side.. I mean from the hill to the other hill. You could fly like a bird. But the thing is I'm scared of heights! I would never ever do any extreme sports like sky diving, bungee jumping and etc. It's dreading me though I wanted to enjoy my life to the fullest and face all my fears but i just couldn't. Would you do it? or have you tried? How does it fee? were you not scared? wow, you're strong.

Wow I don't know about sky diving but I have always wanted to go bungee jump. I know when I go to do it I will get pretty freaked but i somehow have always wanted to do it. We had planned on doing it this summer but because of the weather and everything going rough we just kept on pushing the date. Now we might be doing it next year I don't know LOL but I really wanna go bungee jump.

I have never tried zip lining, but I think that it sounds interesting and I would probably do it if I got the chance. I would also like to try bungy jumping or sky diving. The only extreme thing that I have tried was a very tall climbing tower. I took a summer course and in the garden close to the school there was a very tall tower. On the first day I saw the tower and I decided to climb it. It was a challenge, because it was so tall. I got to the top and I also managed to climb down without problems, but later that day I discovered that we weren't allowed to climb the tower without a safety rope, so I should have waited and read the instructions first Fortuneately everything went well, but I know that I will be more careful next time.

Yes! I love doing such thrilling activities. I love zip lines. I already did that turned upside down! It gave me a look on things at a different perspective! I love the thrill and the adrenaline rush on such extreme activities. The experience is superb. I already tried some water sports, parasailing, wall climbing and rappelling. Also, amusement parks and rides can also give the same amount of excitement. They are great activities. I would really love to try bungee jumping, water rafting and other water sports. You should try it so that you'll feel how great it is to conquer your fears!

I don't have much confidence in things like this, but I like to think that I would be able to take the opportunity if I were given the chance to take part in something. I have tried a zip line before, but it wasn't a particularly high one. I have a younger brother and he has tried a very extreme one which I have said that I would like to be able to try in the future. I used to be very overweight so a lot of things like that were not open to me because of the fact that there were weight limits on a lot of the things, so I am now going to try and do some of the things that I have not been able to do in the past because of my weight.

hi tess! yup, i've tried doing a zip line and bungee jumping as well. it was a rush! the purest adrenalin rush one could get!!! i wouldn't mind doing it again and again and again... crazzzzyyyyyyy me!!! there are a number of zip lines available here in the metro plus a couple in the nearer provinces. been to a couple, everything was almost the same. only the height varied. prices seem to be consistent. bungee jumping, now, that's something that isn't offered as regular as the zip line. anyway, i wouldn't mind traveling to go bungee jumping again. something i want to do in the future is skywalk. here is the link, http://www.skyexperienceadventure.com/. they've added new activities that are worth checking out. this one is in cebu though so a trip here would take some planning.

I wouldn't do it. I wouldn't have done it when I was younger, either. I'm just not the adventurous sort. I like calm and peaceful walks in lovely places. My thrill is the beauty I see. I guess I'm just a Hobbit and I don't have a drop of Took blood in me.

My parents went zip lining. If fifty something aged people can do it, you can. My dad also has a fear of heights, yet he did fine on it.
