Kota Kinabalu Coral Flyer Zipline
Coral Flyer Zipline is actually a cable or rope stretched between two points of different heights, which a person slides down for amusement by means of a suspended harness, pulley or handle. Coral Flyer Zipline Kota Kinabalu was being called with such name because you are participating in a Coral Flyer Zipline adventure above sea water with many corals down below. This is the one and only Coral Flyer zipline ride in Kota Kinabalu. It is not in the jungle (as usual, in another place) across tree canopy’s. Instead, you will ride a zipline across sea water, from one island to another!
Coral Flyer Zipline is the newest gravity-fueled adventure out there in Borneo! Guests travel at speeds while securely harnessed to an inclined steel cable. In another word, Coral Flyer Zipline is also a transportation system or piece of recreation equipment consisting of a cable stretched between points of different elevations, a pulley, and a harness or bar for attaching a rider, who moves by gravity from one place to another, with the first place (or the starting point) being higher from the end point (or the stopping point). When you take Coral Flyer Zipline with Diverse Borneo, you are a flying fox with sea waters under your feet!
