Zip Line Opens To The Public


By Brittany Cooper

Twin Falls, Idaho (KMVT-TV) After three years in the making, the zip line in Twin Falls is finally open to the general public.

Members of the Twin Falls Chamber of Commerce welcomed 'Zip the Snake' to the chamber.

Wednesday marked the grand opening for the group and they can now advertise, sell tickets, collect revenue and much more.

Some of the challenges regarding why they didn't open earlier had to do with codes.

But a 'Zip the Snake' spokeswoman tells us they worked with the city to find some common ground.

Jody Tatum, Spokeswoman says, "we have been working with the city on how to approve this project. The City of Twin Falls, the Building Department, nobody has ever done this before here in our community and we really didn't know how to handle it."

If you're afraid of heights, 160 feet is the highest point for the ride. Tatum says allow one and a half to two hours to complete the course.

It costs $60 per person and for a group of four, it's $225. Some discounts are available.

Group and military discounts are available. For kids under 40 pounds, they need to ride with an adult. Any age can ride, even 101 year olds as demonstrated by Dorothy Custer.
