This new zip line was designed by MND Leisure, a specialist in the development of thrill rides. Named “Fun Flight”, this new type of zip line allows a course with turns under the canopy, for a free flight experience by gravity in the forest.

Designed to operate in all seasons, the circuit of the zip line is open air over a length of 700 meters. This new generation of zip line provides thrills and chills with its 360° turns around the trees and its drops, large curves plunging towards the ground. Its different speed variations, up to 30 km/h, are controlled by magnetic brakes during the descent, according to the user’s weight for a safe flight.

Developed by MND Leisure, the structure of this activity relies on more than a hundred supporting trees and only three artificial masts in order to integrate it as well as possible into its natural environment and to limit its impact. Adapted to mid-mountain forest environments, this type of zip line can complement existing outdoor activities, such as Adventure Towers, or be adapted to indoor leisure centers.

MND is a major player in the development of sensational leisure infrastructures and is constantly investing in research and development to keep pace with the growth of the leisure market, which is facing strong demand from ski resorts to offer new 4-season activities to the tourism industry.

  • Structure: 3 artificial masts and more than 100 supporting trees
  • Length 723 meters
  • Vertical drop: 50 m
  • Average slope: 7%
  • Number of clients: 30 people/hour
