The video below is from the eighth and ninth line. About 56 seconds into the video, I have slowed it down for some seconds. If you look closely, you can see a little spot coming into the frame from the top and passing below me. That is a person riding the seventh line. It gives a little impression of how high up I actually am. 1600 meters hanging under a suspiciously thin wire was a scary, but actually a fantastic fun ride. 64 seconds gives an average speed of 90 km/hour, but the maximum speed was probably faster than 100 km/hour. The ninth line is “only” 700 meters long and at this point I felt confident.
Here is a video from Aventura Canopy Tour’s homepage that shows the swing from a distance (it looks like there hves been sun in Costa Rica once):
