    My wife did it, she liked it. I think it cost $15 so it was worth the experience. I had just done Sky Jump so I did not try it. It may be under construction, they are supposed to be making it bigger and more permanent.

    did it about a year ago. was good fun as my buddy and i were pretty drunk. they make you read a couple of pages and initial a bunch of boxes. the only bummer is when we got to the roof/launch platform, there was a 30-40 minute wait as there were lots of people up there that you can't see until you get up there. fortunately we were not in a hurry but it was a long wait. definitely fun though! good luck!

    Did it last year with my 22yr old daughter. She loved it. I thought it was just a whimpy ride. It all depends on your thrill level. I prefer the great coaster rides of Cedar Point in Sandusky ,Ohio. I have way more fun on the coasters than the zip line. To make a comparison, my daughter won't go near the monster coasters (scared) but she can't wait to go back on the zip line next month. We had a 45 minute wait on a midweek night at about 8pm. I hope you like it but I would rather spend my $15 on booze or gaming. Have fun.

    I am happy to see something new that pleases the crowd, and that is enjoying success. Watching from the ground everyone seems to be having lots of fun! It certainly isn't for me but it is just as well, reading the requirements it appears that Not only am I too old, but too fat as well!
