If you are the type who giggles in the face of danger, then this zip line attraction will have you enjoying one of those grand, guttural belly laughs.

For others, it may have you redecorating the ground below with various items from your respective lunch.

We are referring to the insane zip line ride offered at the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park in Canyon City, Colorado.

The following video does a nice job of introducing you to an attraction that is certifiably bananas.

The ride is called the Cloudscraper Zip Line, and the park boasts it as the highest zip line attraction in North America as it dangles its visitors 1,200 feet above the Arkansas River, which has to look amazing from that vantage.

Then again, escalator rides are normally extreme enough for our tastes. But if you like the wind in your hair and an unbelievable drop below your feet then you should get yourself to Colorado.

The park also promises the thrills and relative tranquility provided by gondola rides, a playland and an amble over the nearby bridge.
