Seems like I read something here somewhere that a zip line was going to be opening in MB? And that the projected start date might be April 1st? We are coming down later this week with kids and they would love something like that.

Any news?

You don't have to have disappointed kids, take them over to Broadway at the Beach there is a zip=line there it starts on the WonderWorks side and crosses the lake then back.

You might want to watch the zipline at Broadway before you invest. We saw several small kids get stranded last year and had to be rescued by the attendant. Something was just not right with th

at zipline

It looks like the Zipline on the former Pavilion site may be either now open or is just complete and they're doing test runs - I just watched them for a while and took some pictures of it a few hours ago when we tried out the new Gem City Pizza across the street (on the corner of Kings Highway/Business 17 and the end of Rt 501).

I hope to get the pics uploaded tomorrow or Wednesday (when I'm off again) PLUS post a writeup about Gem City Pizza (VERY IMPRESSED!) in the appropriate forum...

It appears what we saw yesterday was test runs - a VIP Grand Opening is announced for April 19th and they hope to be open for regular business that weekend. Check out this article, just posted:

Yes, Mike is correct. The latest news is in the link he provided.

Additionally, yet another zip line is proposed for inside the grounds of Family Kingdom :

I'll clean up the older posts in this string so no one will get confused.

Here are the photos I took of the new Zip Lines this past Monday while at the new Gem City Pizza - across Kings Highway/Business Rt 17 from the Zip Line site on the former Pavilion site. Some were taken from outside Gem City - some taken while looking outside their windows.

You can see the Zip Line crew members on the tower in some of the photos. We only saw a couple of them actually out riding on the lines during their testing, but my view was obstructed.

Drove past it last night - still needs work as mentioned.
The one at BATB was working and some kids seemed to be enjoying it. My kids seemed obtuse to it's existence, but maybe it being 48 degrees out had something to do with it.

That looks so awesome. I can't wait to go on it! As far as BATB, I think some kids could get stuck because the trajectory isn't very steep and they probably don't have the weight to propel them. Skinny kids could get stuck!
