According to their Facebook page, they are making Zipline free.

Of course, I chimed in at was a stupid idea that was (not those exact words) because they don't know what their bottom line for the season is on it yet, since it's new.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

I recently went to the park (June 30). I was able to see their new Zip Line and water maze. The water maze looked like it would be a lot of fun. Lots of water can be sent in many places to get you wet, and there is even two water guns on a viewing platform above the maze so viewers can squirt water at people in the maze.

I didn't get to try it. I only had 3 hours in the water park and I used up all that time photographing the park for a website I own.

As for the zipline:

I don't know what the price was originally, but I don't know if I'd want to pay a certain fee to do this either. No offence, just my opinion.

Edit: Just read through a few pages back and noticed that you people are looking for a trip report. If you can give me time, I can write one up of my visit on June 30th. It'll include the POV's I shot of the slides, which I received full written permission from management to so.

I'm not trashing you, But those photos make the park look even less interesting.


I hope the park bombs this year attendance and revenue wise.

I was expecting a zipline from one of the large hills around the park, not a trailer mounted unit that looks as exciting as the Lifetime Network.

Then they realize the fault of closing the coasters.

It looks duller than the Lifetime Network. At least I get Jennifer Love Hewitt in "Female Underwear"

These comparisons are going completely over my head... it was clever when it was used a few pages back, but I think you can stop now.

Also keep in mind the photo was taken at an angle that makes it seem shorter than it really is (still, the line isn't very long). The thing about the zipline is it's location. It's the furthest attraction from the water park, and the first ride when you enter the park. And when I did enter the park, I missed it completely due to it being behind those buildings.

Seems to me that if the amusement park section had done more to draw guests, it would still be in operation.
