The College of Southern Idaho opened their challenge course to the public for rides on their zip line on Monday.

They say their ropes course is the biggest west of the Mississippi.

The zip line is 55 feet high and 250 feet long.

CSI said it gives people a great opportunity to get out of their comfort zone.

"The whole point of the challenge course is challenge by choice and giving you the opportunity to challenge yourself,” said Scott Rogers, the challenge course coordinator. “It's a safe environment and once you're in a safe environment you feel a bit more comfortable challenging yourself.”

Normally the course costs eight dollars per hour per person.

On Monday they are charged five dollars for two rides on the zip line.
