A record agency in Vietnam has recently recognized two newly-launched thrill games.
The Vietnam Record Organization (Vietkings) has recently recognized the “highwire game” as the country’s largest of its kind, and the “zipline” game as the country’s longest.
The games, which are widely popular around the world, are offered at the Alba Thanh Tan Hot Spring in central Thua Thien – Hue province’s Phong Dien district. The “zipline” game is launched for the first time in Vietnam.
According to the Alba Thanh Tan Hot Spring management, the “highwire” measures some 587m in length and is built from 1,463 wooden components.
Players will overcome three challenge sections with 32 activities of increasing difficulty on the 6m-high cable.
The first section is designed for entire families to play together. Kids above 1.1m tall can take part in the game, as long as they’re accompanied by a parent.
The second and third sections comprise more demanding challenges including walking on dangling wood planks, and balancing on tiny logs while trying to cross a rope bridge or climb a net bridge.
With the “zipline” game, players will “fly” from the Ma Yen 45,5m mountain edge, crossing a lush forest patch before descending on the surface of the hot spring.
The game won the Vietkings record for boasting relentless challenges on the total length of 560m.
The launch of the two games is part of the Alba Thanh Tan Hot Spring’s renovation project, which is worth over US$1.5 million. The project is invested by France’s Openasia Group and goes on until the end of 2015.
The two games have been certified by France’s Vertic Alps Expertise Co. and Vietnam’s Ministry of Construction to meet safety standards.
