INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis' biggest park is getting a zip line that will give visitors an eagle's eye view as they glide dozens of feet above a wooded area.
A Rockville, Md.-based company called Go Ape is building the zip line and an obstacle course at Eagle Creek Park on Indianapolis' far northwest side. Company official Dan D'Agostino tells WTHR-TV the zip line will create "trails within the trees, versus trails within the ground."
Construction began last weekend on the course that will run up to 50 feet above a 5½-acre section of the park, which spans 5,300 acres.
D'Agostino says the zip line will open sometime this summer and will have about 40 obstacles. It will cost $55 for adults and $35 for children ages 10 to 18.
