Twin Falls Zip Line Nearly Ready To Fly
A zip line adventure being constructed for Magic Valley Flight Simulations in the Snake River Canyon is coming along quickly and but by the first of May. Just last month the owners of Magic Valley Flights Simulations, Jody Tatum and Dave Fairfield received approval from the Twin Falls County commissioners to build a six zip line course at the base of the Snake River Canyon. Owner Jody Tatum tells Idaho’s News Channel 7 that six towers are up and testing has already begun on the cables. However in order to get to this point, Magic Valley Flights Simulation had to work hard for it. For the last few years, the business has been changing their zip lining plans to abide by city and coumay be ready to make its denty planning and zoning regulations. They have also been trying to work with canyon rim neighbors who opposed the project. The group wanted to initially run the zip line from rim to rim, but that was denied. Instead Tatum said the course will feature six different zip lines, with the longest running 2,100 feet. The program will be designed for not only high flying fun, but also teach riders about wildlife and vegetation in the area. Flight Simulations is scheduled to do testing and certification and inspection of the zip lines the last week of April.
