Zip lining comes to Bronx Zoo

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

A zip line has been added as a new feature at the Bronx Zoo.

The new Treetop Adventure attraction features seven rope courses, some located above the tree tops.

The course also features a zip line that hangs 50 feet above the Bronx River, zoo officials say.

Officials say the courses vary in difficulties to challenge visitors of all skill levels.

The goal, officials say, is to expose visitors to the great outdoors.

Treetop Adventure will be opened year-round for those 7 years of age and up.
