interzip rogers

Canada is getting the world's first interprovincial zipline

Canadians will soon be able to experience a very unique form of travel between Ottawa, Ont. and Gatineau, Que. on the world's first interprovincial zipline.

Interzip Rogers will span nearly 430 m across the Ottawa River at a height of just under 35 m — that's around 11 storeys in the air.

Though the news was just announced last month and further details revealed today, people are already making quips about how the attraction may become the area's most reliable form of public transportation seeing as Ottawa transit has been especially bad lately.

Two parallel ziplines will connect points in the two cities, offering once-in-a-lifetime views of the area surrounding the National Capital Region. The project is part of Zibi, a forthcoming waterfront mega-community coming to both sides of the river.

Work on the zipline, which should host tens of thousands of visitors per year, is already underway and should be completed by spring 2020.
