Ziplining remains this species’ way of soaring across the sky in the most sensible manner without the need for pesky things like feathers or wings. And we like to choose some spectacular locations in which to practice this awesome endeavor, like Niagara Falls.
Yes, you can soon zipline at Niagara Falls.
WildPlay Element Parks At Niagara Falls is prepared to welcome its newest attraction, named the WildPlay’s MistRider Zipline to the Falls.
As it sounds, it will have you dangling from a precarious vantage as you take in the beauty of the falls off in the distance.
And you don’t have to wait much longer to enjoy the action-packed opportunity, because the ride opens July 20.
The website describes the attraction as such: “On four parallel ziplines, travelling 670 metres (2,200 feet) through the wide river gorge, guests get picture-perfect views of the American and Canadian Horseshoe Falls – an exclusive Niagara experience!”
Now you may want some details. A single rider will fork over $49.99 for the breathtaking plunge into majestic scenery. Unfortunately, you smaller folk will have to wait a little longer, because this ride is for those seven and up.
You will also have to weigh between 65 and 300 pounds and have a chaperone if you’re under the age of 13.
The following image gives you a sense of the height from which you will dangle joyously:
And here the ziplines loom for their respective visitors:
There are many ways to enjoy some of the most famous falls in the world. For the timid, you can simply walk the expanse of the area and take in the grandeur.
But if you’re the type who needs vacation to reach 11, then you now have a solution in these long lines that will take you from Point A to Point Yay.
