    From Niagara This Week:

    The natural wonder that is Niagara Falls has been viewed from about just about every angle and every way, but a B.C. company has found one more way to experience the falls.

    “The common denominators is that it’s exhilarating,” said WildPlay Niagara general manager Rich Merlino.

    The MistRider Zipline to the Falls held a media launch Wednesday, July 20, inviting media from across the globe, politicians and dignitaries to try out the 670-metre-long zipline that takes riders through the Niagara Gorge towards the famous Horseshoe Falls. The zipline gives people another way to view both the Canadian and American falls.

    Speaking at the launch MP Wayne Gates called the zipline just one more reason to people will want to come to Niagara Falls and the entire Niagara region.

    “Come for the falls, stay for the hospitality,” he said.

    From the Buffalo News:

    There’s a new thrill penetrating the mist of the Horseshoe Falls – folks zip lining, 2,200 feet over the Niagara Gorge.

    WildPlay MistRider Zipline is on track to debut Friday, but staffers, their friends and family members began testing 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.
