I was dying to try a zip line but was hesitant because of my fear of heights. I feel like I conquered them, when a friend talked me into taking the leap. The part that bothered me most was the chairlift that takes you to the take off platform. When I was younger, I was stuck on a chairlift for an hour. I think that was the reason for my fear. But it went off without a hitch. When you get to the take off point for the zip line, there are two lines, side by side, so I was able to go down next to my companion. They make sure the safety harness is secured and off you go, traveling down the mountain at about 45 miles an hour and 75 feet off the ground. You are slowed to a stop by a long springs at the base station off the parking lot. It was a blast!
