Would You Zip Line Across Niagara Falls?
Posted on 18 July 2016
Are you brave enough to zip line over Niagara Falls? You can test yourself this summer, a new zip line is set to open July 20th! The insane thrill ride will span 2,200 feet over the entire Niagara Gorge.
WildPlay MistRider Zipline, is set to debut the 20th, but friends and family were able to test the ride over the weekend. The official grand opening/ribbon-cutting is scheduled for July 20.
Lindsay DiCosimo, marketing manager of WildPlay MistRider, called the ride “phenomenal,” with “spectacular views” of both the American and Horseshoe falls.
“It’s a completely different perspective for people,” DiCosimo said.
The ride at which is located at 5850 River Road in the Grandview Marketplace is accessed from an elevator outside the tower used by Hornblower Cruises. Riders – who must be at least 7 years old and weigh between 65 and 300 pounds – are escorted up to the launch tower and fitted into a paragliding harness before being hooked up to one of the four zip lines. With the Horseshoe Falls looming as the backdrop, each cable line carries riders 2,200 feet into and over the gorge to another platform – the entire zip trip lasting about one minute.
Is anyone Brave enough?
