Video: Open Up and Say ‘Ahhhhhhhhhh!’

October 12, 2011 | By | 7 Comments

What’s 2,600 feet long, 500 feet high and way too expensive? That would be the Dragon’s Breath Flight Line, the show-stopping excursion at Royal Caribbean’s oasis in Labadee, Haiti. We took a break with other media participating in this year’s CruiseOne/Cruises Inc. conference onboard Allure of the Seas to zip down the line, which has top speeds of 50 mph and had the dude sitting in the harness next to us whimpering. (Really, he was whimpering.) It sure didn’t feel like we were going that fast, and at $89 the 30-second plunge went by in a flash, but … ok, it was wicked cool. Cruise Radio cohost/founder Doug Parker went down shortly after we did, clutching his camera all the way. He shared this video with us, and included the screaming.

      I’ve zipped a few lines and more to come. That one looks like it will feel like flight.

      Shouldn’t that scream be more like AAAGGGGGGGHH!

      The guy was obviously whimpering that he had blown nearly $90 on a 30 second zip line ride. I would have been crying!

      Only $10,680 per hour? That’s a bargain!

      What the writer of this article didn’t say is that he was shaking in his boots. I have the pics!
