Newry, Maine (June 30, 2011)-You’ll fly through the air with the greatest of ease, not needing any wings or a single trapeze. And at the end of your tour you’re certain to say, “My, oh, my, what a wonderful day!”

Now open for the summer, Sunday River invites guests to fly through the air on one of its Zipline Tours or Twin Zips .

Installed last summer, Sunday River’s Zipline Tour consists of six lines ranging from 100 to 300 feet in length. New this summer, Twin Zips – also know as parallel zip lines – have been added to the end of each Zipline Tour and allow for participants to zip 750 feet back to the base of the resort side-by-side.

Sunday River’s Zipline Tours are available Thursdays through Sundays, as well as the Fourth of July, Labor Day and Columbus Day holidays, at 9 a.m., 12, p.m., and 3 p.m.

Zipline Tours take approximately two hours to complete and are lead by certified guides who help participants on and off of each line. Zipline Tours cost $49 per person and each ‘zipper’ must be at least three feet tall and weigh between 70 and 270 pounds.

Twin Zips are available to try separate from the tour and are open to the general public Fridays through Sundays from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Cost is $15 for two zips or $20 for two zips and one roundtrip scenic Chondola ride . Twin Zip participants must meet the same Zipline Tour height and weight requirements; reservations are not required.

Reservations for Zipline Tours are also not required but are highly recommended. Additionally, a parental signature is required on Zipline Tour and Twin Zip releases for minors 18 years or younger.
