Somebody has to be the guinea pig! Fernie Alpine Resort in preparation of the Grand Opening of their new Zipline & Aerial Park invited locals to test the new attraction yesterday.
A crew of thirty thrill seekers took the challenge of weaving their way through the canopy park, basically a fun-for-all-ages obstacle course built from tree to tree including 4 different ziplines of varying difficulty.
"I wasn't sure what to expect, I was excited and curious." Explained one of the locals that works in Historic Downtown Fernie. "Once they suited you up in the safety gear and went through the instructions and safety talk the game was on! It was so much fun I giggled a lot, while at the same time it was a great challenge."
The new Zipline & Aerial Park opens for a Preview Weekend June 23rd then operates 7-days a week starting June 29th until September 2nd.
