Add zip-lines to your list of phobias, because these high-speed devil contraptions have done more to hurt people than all the sharks, spiders and snakes in the world combined! First, they lure you in with their breathtaking views, dizzying heights, and epic speeds, and then they hurl you into whoever's unfortunate enough to be on the other side.

If you're lucky enough to have experienced zip-line guides on the other end, you'll just get the wind knocked out of you as you slam on the brakes. Or, you'll be this next kid and make a rather painful DIY landing.
