Zipline?

I was wondering if Disney would consider putting a Zip-line in. Place it in Downtown or near one of the parks. A great view would add to its popularity. What do you guys think?

I'm not sure that there would be any good place to put it. Might be interesting to watch.

Too low capacity to be cost effective from their perspective I would suggest?

The safari zoo in San Diego has one. I forget how much, but I remember it cost extra (a lot) to zip across the zoo. I think it would be really neat at WDW.

I would love that. It seems like they could maybe put it in AK with the rest of the safari.

Just get a job as Tinkerbell and you can zipline most evenings at the MK!

I wouldn't be suprised if a ride like that appears in the new Avatar land at AK

A cable ride around and through the floating mountains of Pandora. You could be in a banshee shaped vehicle... like the dragon that flew over FLE on opening day...

They took down the cable car ride in the MK, so can't really see them putting in another ride that would 'zip' you across one of their parks.
