Zipwire ride from Spain to Portugal

David Jarman, the British creator of Limit Zero, set up and created a zipwire ride connecting the Spanish village of Sanlúcar de Guadiana with Alcoutim, across the Guardiana River in Portugal.
Visitors are provided a unique experience crossing over the River Guadiana from Spain to Portugal. Along the 720 meters joining the two countries, users cross over the river at speeds between 70 and 80 kilometers per hour, literally flying through time and gaining one hour because of the time zone change between both countries.
Participants, when they reach the end of the zip line in Portugal, they walk to the Alcoutim jetty where they are ferried back across the river to Spain.
