Cable and scaffolding have gone up for a 500-foot zip line across the fairgrounds’ Lake Talbott. The Hutchinson News reports the ride will be in operation when the fair begins its 10-day run on Friday.
State Fair general manager Denny Stoecklein says he’ll definitely be among those giving the zip line a try. The attraction is open to visitors weighing between 75 and 275 pounds. Children under 18 will need a parent’s consent.
Fair officials say the agreement for the zip line was finalized in late August with Adventure Experiences Inc. of Trinity, Texas.
