CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Starting Thursday, you can begin reserving your spot for the ride of a lifetime careening down a zip line at The Banks during All-Star festivities.
Fans will fly more than a city block down East Freedom Way from an 80-foot launch tower just in front of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. After zooming some 700 feet, they will land on a 20-foot platform in front of the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum.
The Hall of Fame's new LED video board will show riders flying through the air as they reach the finish. Participants will be able to purchase keepsake images of themselves on the zip line.
Participants will need to bring their print-at-home ticket to the ticket check-in at the corner of Freedom Way and Joe Nuxhall Way (across from The Holy Grail) and sign a waiver prior to riding the zip line. Participants under 18 years old must have their waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Waiver must be signed in the presence of staff at ticket check-in.
Due to safety guidelines, participants must be 10 years of age or older and weigh between 70 and 250 pounds. No one who is pregnant, suffering from heart, leg or back problems, or under the influence of alcohol or drugs will be permitted to ride.
Walk-up tickets cost $45 and are subject to availability. Only 60 tickets will be available per hour of operation:
• 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday
• 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday
• 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday
• 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. Game Day Tuesday
