VIDEO: Wales' Insane New Zip Line is the Fastest in the World

Tucked into the sleepy Wales countryside is an adrenaline rush literally unlike any other.

Velocity is the name of Zip World’s attraction in Wales. It boasts the longest zip line course in Europe and the fastest zip line ride in the entire world thanks to speeds reaching well over 100 miles per hour.

It’s an extreme way to experience some normally serene scenery.

Just watch the experience for yourself courtesy of INSIDER:

On a clear day, the zip line over the Penrhyn Quarry lake will allow for views all the way out to the Isle of Man—over 50 miles away!

Although this is certainly an experience that probably isn’t for everyone, the company also allows for tours of the quarry and rides on “The Little Zipper” to help the squeamish work up to the zip line to end all zip lines.

Maybe Wales wasn’t on your extreme sports bucket list before today, but after watching that video, one can’t help but feel just a little twinge of excitement over a potential trip. Unless, of course, you’re scared...

You’re not scared, are you?
