Looks like Vancouver and the provincial government are bringing the great outdoors to an urban setting as there are rumours (now confirmed) of an urban zip line in the street of downtown Vancouver during the 2010 winter Olympics. How cool is that!

Best of all it will be free. At least this is what we are hearing right now. No doubt there will be long line-ups for this. Perhaps charging a $1 per ride would be more ideal, hmmm…

Ziptrek Ecotours is open at Robson Square in downtown Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Come and be dazzled at Ziptrek’s latest venture.  Perched above the law courts at Robson Square, guests 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!

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!  Be sure to come and check out this exclusive attraction.  Only during the Olympics, and Free!
