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

I’m glad Twin Cities Live reporter Kelli Hanson had the guts to zip line across the Mississippi River. Together, we took on 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.

The Bold North Zip Line, which was in town as part of Super Bowl LII festivities, was a popular experience, taking less than 36 hours for tickets to sell out.

Why Wednesday is the best day for Vikings fans to attend the Super Bowl Experience

Vikings fans who are still a bit bummed about the NFC Championship game can at least some cash at the Super Bowl Experience on January 31. Wear your Vikings gear to get $5 off admission.

Super Bowl Experience, located inside the Minneapolis Convention Center, is jam-packed with activities, including your chance to kick a field goal, see how well you would line up against NFL prospects, and much more. On top of that, current NFL players and alumni are there for photos and autographs. And the Lombardi trophy that’ll be handed out Sunday night is on display.

Tickets are regularly priced at $35 for adults and $25 for kids. To get the $5 discount, make sure to wear your Vikings apparel when you walk to the box office. The deal is good on Wednesday, January 31 only.

If you purchased your tickets in advance, you’re unfortunately out of luck when it comes to the discount.

Super Bowl Experience is open through Saturday, February 3.
