Because ziplining in the daylight prohibits you from doing it with your significantly more popular vampire friends, Santa Catalina Island Company has just launched the first night ziplining tour in all of California on that damn handsome island. And because you thirst for knowledge like your vamp friends thirst for jpegs of hot people's necks, here's a lil' FAQ to further enlighten:
How is this different from the daytime one?
Well, for one, it's at night. But also, you essentially step off of an illuminated (and sustainably solar-powered!) platform right on the ocean's edge and plunge into total darkness at Cheetara speeds of up to 45mph, and heights of 300ft over the canyon floor on your way to five stations covering almost a mile.
What happens when I get to said stations?
Guides will probably high-five you and tell you that "you didn't look terrified or awkward at all" while barreling in there. Then they'll do what anyone would do in that situation: learn you on Catalina's crazy nocturnal wildlife, history, and culture, before pushing you towards the next station and making fun of how terrified and awkward you look.
But they just said I didn't look weird!?
Oh right. They meant "you" as in the general, universal you, not "you" specifically. You look great.
What if I crave even more than just night ziplining?
Impossible! But if you're serious, pair this puppy up with one of their other Expedition offerings, which include rock climbing and bi-fuel back country tours in a Hummer, also what Bella should've settled for to avoid that whole angry vampire fetus thing.
