What it’s like to zip line over the Mississippi River

One comment

I’m glad Twin Cities Live reporter Kelli Hanson had some nerves zip lining across the Mississippi River. She asked me to join her for the Bold North Zip Line which has you hanging about 100 feet in the air as you glide nearly 800 feet across the Mississippi. The views — and the adrenaline rush — are something special.

About to start the trek up the stairs!

Check out Kelli’s story to get a glimpse of what it’s like. If you want to go and don’t have tickets, you’re unfortunately out of luck. It took less than 36 hours for the zip line to sell out.


You can watch these daredevils fly while standing on the Father Hennepin bridge. Make sure to head back after sunset to see the “new” Grain Belt Beer sign all aglow!
