SAB to Sponor Zip-Line Event April 17

The Student Activities Board (SAB) and Student Recreation Center are hosting an extreme zip-line from 12-6 p.m. April 17 on campus at Red Barn Park.

The zip-line is 120 feet long and can hold one passenger at a time. Rides will be on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a weight limit of 275 pounds.

Armbands will be available at the event, free for students with a Truman ID and $5 for general admission. After receiving an armband and signing a waiver, participants are invited to ride the zip-line as many times as they want. Non-Truman students must be 18 or older to ride.

The zip-line is a product of C.E.P. Inc., a novelty events company based out of Grand Rapids, Mich. This is the first commercial mobile zip-line and was voted best new product at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA) in 2012.
