I saw this on Discover Oklahoma Saturday evening.   It looks like a blast.  

We are going to Belize in October and they have Ziplines there too.   My wife and I are planning on doing it in Belize.   We will have to check out Postoak and do a trial run.   The kids are chickening out on doing this in Belize.   Bunch of light weights.

It just opened but love the marketing "Advance reservations are required. Book now, as canopy tour schedules traditionally fill quickly"

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.

This looks freaking awesome. I am going to have to do this. No way will I be pushed out of a perfectly good plane. But being pushed off a platform and hitting close to 50 mph zipping through the air. I'm in.

There is another zip-line that has been around for a couple of years.  It is at the Canebrake resort on Lake Ft Gibson beyond Wagoner.

Hey for 90 bucks I was a little sceptical. But after reading the web site. This takes up to 2 hours on 6 ziplines and plenty to see and do. Very impressive.

She said itís six jumps for $90 and worth every penny.  She said to leap off the second one backwards for a real thrill.  Doesnít mean anything to me since Iíve not done it, but there you go.
