I can see them maybe doing something like this at DTD, if they did like three runs the capacity couldn't be worse than the Balloon.

I'd take one from BLT or Contemporary into Adventureland for sure. It would be like in that movie Divergent where they go off the skyscraper in Chicago.

Zipline with an appetizer party on one end, a shot sampler on the finishing in. Only open it during fireworks or parades. $150 each. Only 100 guests per day. Sounds like an easy $15000 per day to Disney. I expect to see this announced any day.

I definitely think a zip-line over AK and the animals would be great. Flying over giraffes would be unique.

Loved, loved, loved, that ride, made us sick when they removed it - of course, this is not the only one closed that we loved so much.

I think this would be an awesome idea! The six flags by me has a zip line in their safari, it's a little pathetic one and yet the line is so long, Disney could really make even more Capitol with a zip!
