Ziptrek will allow visitors to soar 950 feet above the ground as part of this year's Calgary Stampede Park experience.
WHISTLER, BC, June 20, 2012 /CNW/ - The thrill of urban ziplining will be a featured part of this year's Calgary Stampede, near downtown Calgary, Alberta. With the zipline set to run directly across Stampede Park and land near one of the entrances to the Saddledome, fun seekers will be enticed to thrill their senses by ziplining 950 feet over the heart of the Park.
Ziptrek Ecotours, based in Whistler, Canada, has partnered with the Calgary Stampede to bring this marvel to the city. Similar to what Ziptrek had set up in downtown Vancouver for the 2010 Winter Olympics, and Super Bowl Village 2012 in Indianapolis, Indiana - the company and organizers expect this to be another wildly successful draw as witnessed with the long line-ups at both of those signature events. The Stampede Park zipline will be Ziptrek's longest onsite installation yet, a parallel 4-line set up with a total run length at 950 feet /290 metres.
Scheduled to run for 10 days, beginning July 6 and running through until Sunday July 15, the attraction is sure to garner significant interest from a wide array of Stampede visitors. Perfect for virtually all ages - families and adventure seekers alike will be able to experience the thrill of ziplining in an urban environment.
"Ziptrek is delighted to be part of such an iconic Canadian event, celebrating its centennial, no less" says Charles Steele, CEO and Co-founder of Ziptrek Ecotours. "This is yet another fantastic opportunity for our company to showcase ziplining in a very exciting and unique environment, not to mention the chance to thrill thousands of people who perhaps have never experienced it before. It also highlights Ziptrek's ability to create a world class experience that can support and bolster grand scale events such as these."
