CHICAGO -- Those who braved the cold today had a chance to zip line through Millennium Park.

Chicago knows how to have fun in the cold -- but this? It's just … new.

When it’s 15 degrees zip lining in Millennium Park doesn’t come to mind -- unless it’s free.

As it turns out Florida was the reason why this was even here: a travel promotion for central Florida.
