Mexico isn’t short on places to adventure, or on places to get good views. But Adventureland Micos, an outdoor adventure park in Huasteca Potosina (in the Mexican state of San Luis Potosi) takes both to another level with its unique zip line: the park’s skybike is the longest bicycle zip line in all of Latin America. Until recently, it was the longest in the world.

To really kick your adventure up a notch, the bike zip line at Adventureland Micos is an absolute must-do. This thrilling excursion combines the best of both worlds — biking and zipping along high-up treetops — to create an unforgettable experience. The zip line is 262 feet above the canyon floor and runs for more than 700 feet.
Adventureland Micos provides everything needed for your bike zip line ride. Helmets, harnesses and bike rental are all included in the price of the ticket, and the staff will ensure you’re strictly following all safety procedures. Fortunately, balance skills aren’t required. While you do need to pedal, the bike’s tires and seat are attached to the zipline, so you can’t fall off (especially since you’re also harnessed to the line).
