CHICAGO– A Chicago suburb will soon be the home to five zip lines but it won’t be cheap to hitch a ride when it opens.

Officials say the zip lines will start being installed next week and ready to use by the Fourth of July weekend.

A two or three hour pass will cost adults $57 and $37 for the kids.

The company behind it all, Go Ape, has built various other zip lines in other cities and now it plans to build the zip lines in Bemis Woods near Western Springs, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Go Ape reached an agreement with the Cook Co. forest preserve district to rent the five acre site for $20,000 a year and to share a portion of the revenue.
