Aerial runway

An aerial runway is a rope slide where a rider uses a seat suspended from a pulley on a rope, often to cross over some kind of obstruction, such as a ravine, piece of water, rough ground or similar, usually from a high point to a lower point.

Who is it suitable for?
Suitable for all ages to participate in (making sure that the structure is suitable for their height and weight) but Scouts and older would be best suited to help construct the runway itself.
