For the second year in a row Ziptrek Ecotours is back at Justin Herman Plaza offering the chance to ride an "Urban" zipline adjacent to the Embarcadero. While speeding along the wire zippers get a majestic view of the Ferry Building, Market Street, and the Bay Bridge.
Last year the opportunity to "Zip"was a free sponsored event where bracelets were handed out daily on a first come first serve basis.
Because the Zipping was free, every morning hundreds of people camped out in the Plaza hoping for one of the elusive bracelets.
I went at eight in the morning last year and was told I should not waste my time waiting because the crowd was too big and I would most likely not get a bracelet.
This year Ziptrek Ecotours is not free.
The zip costs $29 a person for one trip on the 750 foot line. (If you were lucky to have purchased the 1/2 price ticket on SF Gate Daily Deals, it is more worth that price of $14.50. Be advised there are date restrictions on the Daily Deal tickets.)
Ziptrek Ecotours is only expected to run through September 30, 2011; so if you are interested in a unique way to experience San Francisco be sure to check this out.
