    Zipping through the air in Niagara Falls

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Friday was the beginning of a new adventure at Niagara Falls.

    The new Wildplay MistRider Zipline attraction had a soft opening Friday in advance of their Wednesday grand opening.

    I headed down to Clifton Hill to have my own turn on the zipline, located near Hornblower cruises. I electronically paid $56.49 and signed my waiver on my smart phone while I waited in line. The line was long and, according to Lindsay DiCosimo, marketing manager for WildPlay Niagara Falls, they sold out early in the day.

    Some people in line were excited at the prospect of being among the first to take flight.

    “I thought that made it seem more like I wanted to do it when I found out it was just opening,” said Emily Parker, from Liverpool. She was riding the zipline with her brother, Max, while their mother Paula stayed closer to the ground.

    “I wouldn’t go on it,” said Paula, “I’m scared of heights.”

    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.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Adrenaline junkies won’t have to wait much longer before they get to experience Niagara’s newest attraction — Wildplay’s MistRider ZipLine to the Falls.

    It opens to the public July 15, but staff have already been testing the four high-speed, side-by-side lines that descend a distance of 670 metres (2,200 feet) from Niagara Parks Commission’s Grand View Marketplace into the Niagara Gorge below.

    “It’s a great experience and a great attraction to the city,” said Mike Baldasio, after trying the ride for the first time on Friday. “I just wanted to get up there and try it as soon as I could. I will be going back up again.”
