As cool as a zipline sounds why dont they put in something thats going to offer more long term fun like an aquatic center or a waterpark

For the people who are negative in this issue, you obviously havent seen the success that zip line companies have had at places like Hocking Hills and in Southern WV. I always here that there is nothing to do in the area and then when an idea comes along to offer something new to the area people shoot it down without even giving it a chance. Some people just like to be unhappy.

Awesome idea. Was just looking at one of the hills at Southwood and thinking it should be used in some way. Wonder what the tariff might be for a zip, or ten?

It's a bit surprising more of these hills everywhere aren't utilized more, besides digging them down.

How about a scenic overlook on top of Lee's Hill? I would get behind that any way I could too. I'm lucky enough to have enjoyed the view from there many times.
