It’s now possible to soar 120 feet above the Ottawa River from the Zibi site!
The region’s most anticipated tourist attraction of 2021, Interzip Rogers, is now open to the delight of the region’s families and tourists looking for a unique experience in the National Capital Region! The opening ceremony took place earlier today at Zibi with Hull-Aylmer Member of Parliament, Greg Fergus, the Member of the National Assembly for Chapleau and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Justice, Mathieu Lévesque, Gatineau municipal councillor, Pierre Lanthier, and representatives from Ottawa Tourism, Tourisme Outaouais, Rogers, Zibi and Orkestra.
One of the most memorable moments from today’s news conference: the first ride on the world’s first interprovincial zipline by Valérie Ducharme and Charles-Armand Turpin who donated $27,000 to local charities via an online auction for the honour.
The must-do event of the summer!
A thrilling outdoor activity 120 feet above the Ottawa River offering incomparable views of the Parliament, Chaudière Falls, and old Hull, the Interzip Rogers zipline will be one of the region’s most popular tourist attractions this summer and for years to come.
The organizers and the region’s tourism sector are delighted to offer such a popular, and safe, activity to brighten our summer.
Zipline riders will also be happy to see that Zibi’s Terrasse Panorama will be back this summer in collaboration with Beau’s All Natural Brewing Co.. Gatineau restaurants’ food trucks will be invited to park at the site. People can follow Zibi’s social media accounts for more information.
