“I see it as a decent halfway house between a rollercoaster and a bungee jump; it’ll be exciting but not terrifying,” Barry Shaverin, founder of Zip World London, said in an interview with the Evening Standard. “Giant zip lines and the greatest cityscape in the world — it seemed such an obvious idea to put the two together.”
