This pop-up adventure experience lets you whiz from Fed Square to Alexandra Gardens, nine metres above the water.
If you've ever wanted to whiz through the air on a zipline across the Yarra, you'll have your chance this summer, when Firefly Zipline pops up at Fed Square.
From December 1–28, a 130-metre zipline will be installed, connecting Federation Square with Alexandra Gardens. Punters of any age can book a ticket, don a safety harness and helmet, and enjoy a hurtling flight over the Yarra, either solo or as part of a pair. Soaring nine metres above the water and clocking speeds of up to 40 kilometres per hour, it's the ride you never knew you needed in your life.
There's no age limit for zipline flyers, though anyone under 18 will need a parent or guardian present to sign their waiver, and kids under 12 will have to ride with a paying adult. You'll also need to weigh between 35 and 120 kilograms to jump aboard. Tickets are on sale now, clocking in at $49 for adults, $39 for kids and $159 for a family of four. You'll want to get in quick though, with only 5000 available in total.
