San Francisco California Zipline

A 680-foot-long zip line stretching across San Francisco's Justin Herman Plaza will open to the public Thursday, starting with an event featuring two gold medal winners from the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada.

The zip line, part of a free exhibit meant to encourage travel to British Columbia, will be in San Francisco until April 18. Other parts of the exhibit include a 3-D art installation and a video wall.

Robson Square Zip Line: Vancouver, British Columbia

BC Field Reporter Chris Wheeler meets up with a Tourism British Columbia Twitter contest winner Trilby Jeeves during the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Together they climb 140 feet to the top of the zip line tower and rip over 550 feet across Robson Street!

There is so much happening in Robson Square from live shows and ice skating to zipping high above cheering crowds over Vancouver's iconic downtown core! During the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, this landmark public space is serving as the Province of British Columbia's signature venue to showcase the many wonders of this province, and act as prime celebration site. You Gotta Be Here!
