The river zip line is getting closer!

The River Zip Line is getting closer to reality as the new designs are finalized.  The SandRidge Sky Trail, Rumble Drop, and Sky Slide have been extremely popular over the summer since their debut and there have been many questions about the status of the zip line across the river.  The engineering of the zip line experience proved to be challenging with many obstacles on the south bank of the river (and underground) and complications of getting back to the north bank.  We decided to take another approach and have come up with a much more exciting experience that will be truly thrilling and unique to OKC - while complementing the iconic architecture that has become a signature of the Boathouse District.

From the top of the 80 foot SandRidge Sky Trail, guests will have the option of taking the fast Sky Slide (the slide run out has recently been extended to accommodate fast slide mats) to the bottom, step off the Rumble Drop for an 70 foot free fall, or zip from southeast corner of the tower over the river for a fast 700 foot ride to a tower on the south bank of the river.  Guests will then climb higher on the south tower and take a second zip across the river again (with a great view of downtown) to a landing platform on the north bank adjacent to the future SandRidge Youth Pavilion. The majority of the new south tower has been fabricated by Ropes Courses Inc and is currently in Michigan.  The zip line will utilize Zip Stop technology to enhance the experience and the speed of the zip for a very safe and smooth ride.  With the new MAPS 3 river stadium lights complete, the night zip line experiences will also be possible and truly spectacular - adding another unique element to the world class adventure attractions and boathouses of the Boathouse District (and future whitewater center).  The schedule for construction and opening will be announced soon.
