Riding the Zip-Flyer at CBK Mountain Adventures

Back to Camelbeach today. This time with just Samuel--everyone else was water-parked out. Odd, I know.

The new adventure today was riding the mile-long zip line called the Zip-Flyer. It's a separate fee from the waterpark ($29 each), and entails riding the chairlift to the top of the mountain, strapping into a harness, and zipping all the way down at 60 mph.

The view from the top:

Last-minute jitters...

The review: Samuel gave it an 8 out of 10. I'd give it a 7.5--the 0.5-point difference in our ratings is due to the fact that my checking account is now $58 lighter.

It's a lot of fun to fly down a mountain at high speed, honestly. There's not a big "roller-coaster" stomach drop--just a small one at the beginning. It is awfully high, of course, so just walking onto the platform and getting strapped into the harness and looking down gets your adrenaline going.

Was it worth $29? I think it's the kind of thing we'll do once, or at most once a year.

But look at that smile.
