Comic-Con® International 2014 Showcases Mobile Zipline by Extreme Engineering

July 31, 2014 No Comments

At the 2014 Comic-Con® in San Diego, Calif., comic book and super hero fans across the globe enjoyed ziplining across Gotham City™ on Extreme Engineering’s Fly Wire™ Zipline. The version at Comic-Con® was themed to be part of Batman’s® hometown, Gotham City™, and it allowed the mayor of San Diego and the complete cast of the FOX television show, Gotham™, to soar across a diorama.

Comic-Con® hosted over 130,000 attendees, and one of the highlights of this year’s event was the zipline. Riders would exit the mobile zipline’s tower, which was themed as a skyscraper, and soar over the city of Gotham. In celebration of FOX’s new television show, Gotham, the complete cast experienced the mobile zipline at speeds of 21 mph.

“We had a fantastic response and were told multiple times that our zipline was the main attraction at Comic-Con®. The cast of Gotham™ thoroughly enjoyed the zipline experience as well as thousands of participants throughout the week,” said Carter Schmeck, president of Ziplinerental.com and the owner of the zipline featured at the event.

“Theming is such an important aspect with our products. The zipline can be transformed into almost anything. I’ve seen it as a pirate shipwreck, wooden tower, skyscraper and even as a demolished building in London. To get premier events you need a premier product that tells a story. The Fly Wire™ zipline tells that story,” said Philip Wilson, executive vice president of Marketing with Extreme Engineering.

As the world’s largest supplier in patented mobile ziplines, portable ziplines, climbing walls, Extreme Air Jumpers and adventure products for the amusement and resort industries, Extreme Engineering manufactures award-winning products such as the Fly Wire™ Zipline for entertainment enthusiasts on an international level. The Fly Wire™ mobile zipline has won eight industry awards, including laurels from the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA).  The ride provides thrill-seekers the ultimate rush of ziplining across the sky up to 300 feet – the length of a football field. It is also the only mobile zipline of its kind using the safest decelerator, the Decelinator™, which is a proprietary device that fully lowers zipliners safely to the ground so riders can soar through the air with confidence. The ride also offers quick cycle times to serve up to 90 riders an hour.
