I found this video of the longest Zip Line in the world called the Pronutro zip 2000 which sounds like it belongs to Harry Potter.

We call them foofy slides in South Africa, does anyone know why? The Zip slide is a feature at Sun City resort 2 hours outside of Johannesburg.

The sound that the pulley makes on the wire is amazing and far more of a “Zip” than a “Foof”

It is called a foofy (phoophi) slide because it was lubricated with cow dung when grease was not readily available – same as ox wagon axles

Thanks for posting that. I have a list of things I know I will never do in my lifetime – riding a zip line is now on it!
