Ziptrek Vancouver (Robson Square)
CLOSED: Come and be dazzled at Ziptrek’s latest venture. Perched above the law courts at Robson Square, you will be provided the opportunity to zip over 170 metres (550') across Robson Street. Guests will zip high above the crowds an exhilarating six stories over Vancouver’s iconic downtown core! See photos of the site posted on Ziptrek's website, or click the photo for a larger view.
Check out our video taken Feb. 1st showing the Ziptrek crew testing out the line.
This unique endeavor will provide visitors the opportunity to experience the thrill and exhilaration of ziplining – brought to prominence in North America by Ziptrek’s flagship operation in Whistler. Switching the traditional backdrop of old growth forest, to cityscape, should prove to be an amazing and rare experience. Not to mention the fact it will be taking place at one of the key hubs of Olympic activity! This once-in-a-lifetime experience happens during the Olympics, and best of all it's free! The hours of operation are 10:00 am - 9:00 pm daily. Bring your camera and expect the line-ups to be around the corner! There are no age restrictions, but riders must weigh more than 65 pounds (29.5 kilograms). Organizers say they can accommodate about 1000 people per day. The lineups have been very long since this venue opened up...so be prepared to wait.
