HARDY, AR (KAIT)-The newest tourist attraction for Hardy will open up this month. They call it the Zippin Griffin and it's a 5 thousand foot zip line located at Griffin Park.
The new zip line has 5 sections, the longest being 1800 feet where speeds can approach 55 miles an hour depending on your size.
Travis Miller gave me a demonstration as he harnessed up and zipped down through the trees.
"It's a rush." he said. "The first time I tried this I couldn't believe how fast I was going on the long stretch. " The longest section passes over the Spring River and winds up in a large tree at the bottom of the hill.
"We start you out on a training run first. " Miller said "Safety is what we preach here." After that short run then you really get to step out into space.
