Twin Falls Zipline Construction Continues.
 
It looks like the third time's the charm for a zipline in the Snake River Canyon. This traditional gravity zipline will be 1900 feet long. It's built entirely on private land near Centennial Park. Three other shorter zip lines 600, 400, and 150 feet long will be built nearby. The shortest one will be a training line."We have dug the holes for the footings for the cable anchors. We're getting ready to set those up this weekend. We have almost all of our excavation work done. We're going to hydroseed back, so hopefully the next month and a half, we're going to be back to somewhat natural looking surroundings."
 
A zip-line (also known as a flying fox, foefie slide, zip wire, aerial runway, aerial ropeslide, death slide or tyrolean crossing) consists of a pulley suspended on a cable mounted on an incline. It is designed to enable a user propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom of the inclined cable, usually made of stainless steel, by holding on or attaching to the freely moving pulley. Zip-lines come in many forms, most often used as a means of entertainment. They may be short and low, intended for child's play and found on some playgrounds. Longer and higher rides are often used as a means of accessing remote areas, such as a rainforest canopy. Zip-line tours are becoming popular vacation activities, found at outdoor adventure camps or upscale resorts, where they may be an element on a larger challenge or ropes course.
