SPANISH FORK -- A new zip line is open in a part of Spanish Fork that some people call a "hidden secret." There are some pretty high goals for bringing visitors to the area.
Riders on a new line can zip down the mountain at over 30 miles an hour. Builders of the line say they tried to make it less visible than other lines so they wouldn't disturb the overall look of the Spanish Fork Reservoir.
Aaron Atwood with Zip Traveler said, "All you can see right now are some poles that are hanging out of the ground and those are holding the zip line. The zip line comes straight down."
Atwood says the main goal is to bring more visitors to the reservoir.
"During the weekend, I think it's at, usually, about 100 people. On those days we're wanting to almost double it," he said.
Atwood says the area has been known in the past for having parties, but that's been cleaned up. He also says there are 20 safety patents on the line, altogether.
The cost to use the zip line ranges from $5 to $15.
The zip line is located at the mouth of Spanish Fork Canyon. For details, CLICK HERE.
