Public invited to soar above the magnificent Ottawa River at Zibi in Summer 2020!
Adventurous residents and visitors to Canada’s capital will soon have the unique experience of launching themselves across the Ottawa River from one province to another, when Interzip Rogers, the world’s first interprovincial zip line, opens in Summer 2020.
This unmatched adventure will start and finish at Zibi, a 34-acre borderless master-planned waterfront community conceived by Dream Unlimited Corp and Theia Partners, which straddles Ontario and Quebec in the heart of the National Capital Region’s Confederation Boulevard. The close to 1,400 foot-long zip line will soar 120 feet above the Ottawa River offering riders unparalleled 360 degree views of downtown Gatineau, the iconic Chaudière Falls and the Parliament buildings.
This exciting addition to the capital’s skyline is sure to become one of the region’s top tourism destinations when it opens next year. More than 30,000 people are expected to cross the parallel zip lines on an annual basis, offering a positive economic impact for both cities.
“Our National Capital Region has a presence unlike anywhere else in Canada. It is only fitting that the first interprovincial zip line in Canada will be established in our Ottawa-Gatineau communities. As an Ottawa resident, I am proud that this one-of-a-kind attraction will literally connect our provinces while encouraging thousands of visitors to explore all we have to offer.”
– Lisa MacLeod, Minister of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, Government of Ontario
