First, there were hot air balloon rides. Now, RiverRocks is putting human flight a little closer to the ground and a little less encumbered by all that bulky protection.
As part of the 12-day outdoor extravaganza, the festival will install a zip line in Coolidge Park on Friday. The 200-foot line will run parallel to the Tennessee River from the east side of Coolidge Park toward the Chattanooga Theatre Center.
B&B Inflatables will operate the zip line, helping adults and children into the harnesses that are tethered to the line itself. There will also be an inflatable cushion to serve as a landing pad.
What’s the charge for such a frenzied, free sail through the air, you ask? Only $10 per ride and $15 for two rides. The line goes up at 4 p.m. and closes for the night at 7 p.m. On Saturday, rides begin at 11 a.m. and run until 6 p.m.
