Riding the Zipline over Robson Street

This morning I had a chance to be one of the first to ride the new Zipline that goes over Robson Street:

About to zipline!

Needless to say, it was amazing!

Thanks to ZipTrek EcoTours for putting this on. It opens to the general public FOR FREE on Friday, February 12th. You can watch people ride it on their webcam.

I shot this with my Kodak Zx1 camera with the fisheye lens attachment. Seemed like a perfect day for a waterproof(ish) camera.

UPDATE: I felt confident enough to take my Nikon D90 out for a zipline spin too:

I ended up riding the zipline 4 times…it’s unlikely I’d ever get a chance to do that again (go again & again) so I made the most of it! They even said I could just leave the harness on between runs…except to get back to the launch tower, I had to walk up Howe Street and cross Robson on the sidewalk…yes, you get lots of looks when you are fully geared out with a harness and helmet. So much fun!

Check out some more photos from the Zipline.


  1. That looks like SO MUCH FUN. I didn’t realize they had two parallel lines. Lineups will be huge, of course. Not sure I’ll get a chance to do it, but if I can, I’d love to try.
