Here are a few numbers for you so you can get a grasp of just what kind of zipline experience we’re talking about.

The Sasquatch covers a distance of 2 kilometres, which is about the length of 60 Boeing 737 airplanes lined up one-behind-the-other.

The entire journey takes over 90 minutes, which is as long as a lot of movies.

From the initial platform, the trek begins on a 27° angle of descent.

Speeds can get close to and, at certain points even, surpass 100 km/h.

Through it all, you’ll be hovering 600 feet above the ground, with 7000-feet of views.

Yeah, it’s pretty rad.
