Moaning Cavern Zip Line

California's newest zip line is in the Northern California town of Vallecito. Twin 1,500 feet long lines take riders for a thrilling trip down the mountain side. The zip line at Moaning Cavern lasts 35 seconds and reaches a top speed of 40 miles per hour. At $39 for the first ride, that's about $1.10 per second. A second zip line is in the works which will be a mile and a half long, surpassing what's said to be the country's longest at 5,400 feet in Icy Strait Point, near Glacier Bay, Alaska. No athletic ability is needed here. In fact, no need to even hang on. The harness wraps around your legs and torso and hooks onto the zip line's metal trolley. The Moaning Cavern zip lines can carry a rider as light as 70 pounds or as heavy as 260.
