Two mates and I did this ride a few years ago and it was awesome. Finished the bike ride and after a couple of longnecks at the local bar/restaurant we were trucked to the first of three stages of the zip line. Like the bike ride, gravity did most of the work and we crossed three valleys at around eighty km/h. Another good thing about the flying fox is that the locals were sharing the profits. This ride was done in 2014 so there may have been changes since.

We did ziplining last week and it was great! Though i was a little feared it all seemed to be very safe and its possible to zip with a guide. I felt more safe not ziplining alone. They also offer you lockers! Its also not necesarry to book in advance, just go there like we did. The view was stunning and i would definitely do it again!

Most people would access this zip line after doing Death Road. You get a taxi up the road, take three zip lines, then get another taxi to catch up with the rest of your group. It all takes a while, and while reasonably affordable for a zip line ride, we found the experience took more time than it was worth. It doesn't go fast or high enough to give much adrenaline, and since you don't have really any control, we didn't find we got much of a rush. For most people doing Death Road, you might find this a bit of a snooze. Even the seduction of being able to do it with a beer was a bit unfounded, because we got put in the taxi before we could find a place to buy a beer, and you look like a bit of a goon in the full body suit anyway.

I would definitely not go there for just the zipline but as somebody said, the perfect ending for the "death road" MTB descent or if you are already at Coroico a very worthy half day activity. Transportation from Coroico to Yolosa is very straight forward if you are not in a hurry. If you are not doing this with the MTB group try to arrive to the office in Yolosa avoiding the noon to 2pm interval because this is around the time the MTB groups get there. If you can choose try to go in the morning and you will not be rushed. I have looked at the personal equipment as well as the cables and other safety measures installed and they look pretty decent and safe. Personnel follows safety procedures fairly well and give pretty good and clear instructions... not sure about their English. You will need to pay in advance at the office and they will provide you with all the equipment. Be prepared to make your choice: "superman" or "sitting" position. Superman is when you go "superman style"..... you can have your camera in your hands as long as you are sure you are not going to drop it (arrival might be a bit tricky with the camera in your hand). You have a big "chest harness" that allows you to comfortably ride on your stomach the whole way. I strongly recommend this option. The other option is for you to ride on a "sitting position".... the only advantage of this position over the other one is that you get to ride alone (provided that you are old enough to control your braking on arrival... instructions are very straight forward) I have found the attraction a bit expensive (family of 4) but definitely worth it.... as somebody else said, toooooo short.
