Space is now available for these limited registration, high energy shows at New England’s premier tourist and family-friendly destination.
Pick #3: The Z – Boston Zipline
Ride the Z over The Greenway!
Spanning 220-feet, the zipline carries one or two riders along The Greenway’s Parcel 12, starting from Clinton Street and landing near North Street, across from The Greenway’s North End Parks. With two parallel cords, riders soar alongside each other (or race!). From the top of the 30-foot tower riders have a unique view of downtown Boston, the waterfront, and The Greenway!
All riders must weigh between 45 lbs and 250 lbs, must be at least 40 inches tall, and must be in good physical health. All persons must weigh in and check their height at the zipline ticket booth before riding.
Tickets are $8 for one rider and $15 for a pair. Group tickets (10+ tickets) can be purchased at the zipline for $7/a piece and groups of 50 or more can reserve an hour to ‘Ride the Z’ together. For information on group tickets, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘The Z’ is open for rides everyday at 11am until October. Closing times vary and occasionally we will have to close early due to inclement weather. To see specific closing times, please review the calendar below and click your preferred day. For the latest information on weather-related closings, please visit us on Twitter.
‘The Z’ is the centerpiece of a temporarily revitalized ramp parcel (known as “Parcel 12”), whose development remains in a joint State/City planning phase. This summer, Parcel 12 will be a place for families, friends, and independent explorers to ride a zipline, observe public art and hang out in our iconic Adirondack furniture!
The zipline itself is located near the corner of Clinton Street and Surface Road, directly across from Faneuil Hall Marketplace and the Dock Square Parking Garage.
