They have specialty support columns, two wires, with bump guards and and enclosed pulley that rides the wires, and a rope that hands down that you hold onto as it zips down the small incline.

Your words 'dangerous' immediately brought to mind ...
There is an 'adult' playground in Manash, South Australia ... there have
been a number of adult deaths there ..
It has been a while since I was last there .. they now have a flying
fox... I do remember the slippery slide .. umm 20 m vertical height..
the human powered roller coaster.. lots of things .. I'd not let kids
play there without supervision (if they were under my care). I wonder
if it is mapped ? No.. I go do that now.
