In Canada, a new zip line will debut in September at Parc de la Chute at Montmorency Falls, one of Quebec City’s most popular tourist attractions. Riders can make reservations online for the 985-foot double seat zip line, with rates starting at $20 for adults and $15 for children.
Built by Prisme Équipements Canada, the zip tour is part of C$8 million of investments being made at the falls, which includes construction of a tunnel behind the falls similar to one at Niagara Falls. The tunnel is scheduled to be complete by 2018.
Government officials said that the park currently attracts about 630,000 visitors a year, but they anticipate that the new installations could bring in another 100,000.
