Flying on a wire. A Flying fox in Milan for the launch of the new BMW X1
What’s a Flying fox doing in Milan? BMW wanted her there for the launch of the new BMW X1. But this is a Flying fox traverse, not a person, it’s an adrenaline experience.
Maybe you have heard of flying on a wire or flight of the angel or, as we call it, zipl ine. Adrenaline X-treme Adventures, which we build and manage, are amusement parks actually based on this attraction.
Let’s take a closer look at it.
How flying on a wire or zip line works
The zipline is a structure built from two or more towers between which steel cables are run. Participants, equipped with special harnesses and attached to a pulley, fly from one tower to the next.
And if you’re wondering whether the adrenaline is guaranteed, it is. So, it is essential to prepare … a good battle cry. If you are not a regular participant in “only for the brave” experiences, have no fear: we have flown over 100,000 people and there are, we can assure you, very few souls brave enough to leap out without batting an eyelid. After taking your first flight however, you won’t want to stop!
It goes without saying, the experience is as safe as it is extreme, because meticulous planning has gone into every single element of the Aerial runway, and everything has been certified by the relevant bodies.
Where to fly on a wire
The zipline can be installed either in natural settings – like the zero environmental impact one which we built in San Vigilio di Marebbe (Alto Adige in Northern Italy), which is currently Europe’s largest Flying fox – or in urban settings.
If you want to experience the thrill of flying whilst enjoying the view of the Dolomites, come and visit the Adrenaline X-treme Adventures amusement park in San Vigilio. Flights run from 15 May to 31 October. You will find all the information about prices and offers on the site, plus photos and videos in order to get a preview of what to expect.
Do you live in Milan or will you be in the city in the first half of December? In this case, you will be able to see a zipline in action live. You will find the details below.
The Zip line in Milan: when and where
As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, for the launch of the new SUV X1 Series, BMW has decided to give Milan a rush of adrenaline, by bringng in a Aerial runway. The structure will be installed and run by us, the Adrenaline X-Treme Adventures GROUP. However, it is a BMW initiative, so access to the attraction will not be free.
However, the zipline is so enthralling that you will find it exciting just to watch the flights.
It will take place from the 7th to the 13th of December, 2015, amidst Milan’s skyscrapers (including the famous Vertical Forest) on the ‘Campo di Grano’ in the Porta Nuova district.
Flights will be running from 12:00 to 15:30 and from 16:30 to 21:30.
We look forward to seeing you!
