Zip Line Zaniness

Autumn brings about a whole new breed of fun family things to do: pumpkin farms, hay rides, apple picking, playing in the leaves, corn mazes, haunted houses…  the list goes on and on.  A few weeks ago, during a visit to a local farm which boasts such fun fall activities as a corn maze, petting zoo, hay ride, and haunted corn maze amongst other things, my kids had a blast with the zip line.  It’s all fun and games, as they say, until someone gets hurt…

And while no one was seriously injured during the filming of the following video, my 2-year-old daughter has decided that the zip line is no longer for her.  When you watch the following video, you’ll see why.  Her 5-year-old sister goes first and has a blast, but poor little Disney didn’t fare so well.  Don’t worry if your instinct is to chuckle – she wasn’t hurt, just a little frightened.  After all, people must find these types of things funny.  Isn’t that the reason why America’s Funniest Home Videos became a show filled with video clips of people getting injured?

  1. and still is on the air? Seriously, how many times can we watch people getting hit in the most uncomfortable of places before it is not funny? Me… I don’t remember when I quit. glad she was not seriously injured.

  2. Looked like she was having fun right up until the very end. I remember doing that with my girls, but we didn’t video tape it. One parent at the start and one at the end. Just to make sure that didn’t happen. Smart on our part? Not really. When we first saw a zip line, we saw the same thing happen to a little kid. Only I think he was hurt more, he had a bloody nose at the very least.
