What is the Fantasticable?
The aptly named Fantasticable is a zip wire spanning 1.2 Kims from one mountain peak to another. Then if that wasn’t enough, they send you back across to another mountain on a second wire of about the same length. You reach speeds of up to 100kms per hour whilst suspended like superman 240 metres above the ground. You can begin to understand how it feels to fly through the air like a super hero.
After taking the chair from Plaine Dranse to the top towards Linderet, there is a little cabin where you get kitted out. To be fair, getting into the harness and walking over to where you start your thrilling journey, is probably the most difficult part of the whole experience.
Fortunately there is someone to help with the harness and you have all the time in the world to shuffle over to the zip wire, in something that resembles the tightness of a little black dress.
Then begins your attachment to the wire. The lady who did this was great – she asked my name and talked to me the whole time in English. She explained what I needed to do and what she was doing and why.
Enjoy Your Flight
No sooner had my journey begun, when the ground disappeared and I was flying hundreds of metres above Plaine Dranse gazing down at all the bars and restaurants which looked incredibly small at this point.
You really don’t have much of a chance to think about it before you are heading back on the next wire across the mountain. Remember to smile when you are about 50 metres from the end of that return journey, as you are photographed here and it is a great momento of the day.
