If you’ve been desperately missing the Bronx Zoo’s Skyfari, the best ride by far until it was taken down in 2009, we have good news. Next summer, a zip line will be installed over the Bronx River in the zoo. Hello, our new favorite thing to do in the Bronx.
The ride will let you sail on a 375-foot wire that’s 45 feet off the ground, putting you at the level of the park’s treetops. The ride’s for ages 7 and up, but it’s likely to be more appealing to extreme sports lovers than the Bug Carousel is (though it is arguably quite adorable).
