Question about Mokai Gravity Canyon Flying Fox
I'm going to be nationalistic and say I think it's an Australian thing because I know we also call fruit bats flying foxes. Americans tend to call the same things ziplines. I also know the general pulley set up was used by the Australian Army to transport things in the war - but I don't know when the first one was used or where the idea came from. They're quite basic things - it's just gravity, a rope and some pulleys - so there's no g-forces to encounter or standard minimum or maximum ages - each flying fox is rigged up differently and lots of them are in children's playgrounds. On the larger, more professional ones you often have to wear a harness, helmet and gloves - again, each one has different safety requirements.
