No Guts, No Glory !
There is a Cloud
Forest Mountain open to the general public in Boquete Panama.
Its operation resembles an ski mountain
resort but instead of slopes you will find cables that will take you down in
a thrilling adventure in which you do not need any skills to do it just the
courage to let go.
With 12 stations and spectacular
sceneries, this is one of the world´s best rides. The largest span is 400-meters
long which you will travel in 20 seconds.
ride is the test of faith. Follow the instructions. Use your
hand to keep your body straight by holding the cable behind you to keep from
spinning during the ride. Every station that requires it has a breaking
system in which it does not matter what you do, you will be stopped, and you
will have a blast !
group of 20 participants included childrens, (6-8 years olds) as well as
people in their sixties. It did remind me of the ski phrase "if
it looks too vertical to you, you are getting old" because those kids were
totally fearless. I have to admit that I was terrified on the first
ride while approaching the first station with tree-smashing speed and with
out being aware of how effective were those brake systems were going to be.
But they worked fine, and once I trusted them I was more relaxed.
This is one

practice this sport but how many new that there will be a mechanical assisted
towing circuit system installed on it by next year.
