Rocky River Zip Line and Adventure Park, a proposed aerial adventure operation in Colinet, New Labrador in Canada, is one step closer to reality.
The provincial government has approved the environmental assessment necessary for construction to begin on the attraction, which has planned 14 zip lines, a 5,000 sq. ft. chalet and restaurant, and log cottages for overnight stays.
The project has been in limbo since the initial proposal was registered in 2014, as delays in the government approval process piled up.
Trevor Linehan, the man behind the project, came up with the idea in an effort to support the local community he grew up in. “I’ve just seen over the last 20-30 years, how our small communities just diminish because everybody has to leave for work, or for whatever reasons,” said Linehan. “I just thought this would be a great opportunity to be able to attract something that wouldn’t hurt what we have there, bring more people around, which would create more business.”
Construction is scheduled to start in early summer 2019.
