Sky Fox (Cables Ride) in Koh Samui ...
Day started off seemingly sketchy. Our hotel concierge set up the
tour…were told it would be a 30 minute drive, and 35 mins on the
cables, and 30 minutes home.
What we were NOT told is that we’d be picked up in the back of a pickup
truck (there was already a family of four in the back of the the truck
with their golf clubs, so we quickly realized there could be and were
other stops to be made to pick up more folks).
After a dropoff at the golf course, we proceeded to the zipline/cable
ride. The final mile or so was a dirt rode, heavy inclines, and lots of
rocks which is why you need the 4×4 truck. After getting to the initial
platform, we then had to climb a fairly steep trail (not great for
youngsters under 8 or youngsters over 70 unless in great shape). So
we’re thinking, “holy cow, this was a sketchy ride, we’re in Thailand in
the middle of the jungle, is this really safe??”.
Get to the first zipline which is a 10 foot long “practice run”. Easy
Then the rides started. Unbelievably fun!!! You zip by waterfalls,
stunning views and out of tree chutes! Safe, thrilling, easy (hardest
part was walking up the hill!). I can’t say enough about how fun it
was–describing the thrill is one thing, experiencing it is another. On
our way back to car we saw a lot of families on their way, so it seems
most ages can enjoy it (and different body types).
By the way, our driver was great and took us very close to the base hut
where you get put into you harness…I think other drivers made the
participants walk up a fairly steep hill. Whatever the case, do it!!
