One would hope the spring weather will stick around at some point. Who knows? We might head straight into summer. But if you're like most, chances are you're looking catch a breath of fresh air. Here's a fun new option in Orange County: the area's newest zip line at the Castle Fun Center in Chester.
According to their website, the ride is 130 feet off the ground and goes for around 700 feet. Speeds of 30 miles per hour are reached as you get a birds-eye view of Orange County. You must be at least 42 inches tall to get on and anyone up to 47 inches must be accompanied by someone 18 or older. At just $8 per ride, it sounds like fun.
