The zip wire claims to be the fastest in any major city and opens in London next month.

The Zip World London “experience” will take about 30 seconds to complete, as thrill seekers will descend looking over spectacular views of the Thames, Big Ben, the Shard and the London Eye.

The whole experience will take 40 minutes, including a safety briefing, finally touching down on a landing tower 12 meters above the ground.
