It’s been a long wait but… drumroll please… the Venice Zipline will officially open its doors (or take to the skies) at 11 a.m. today – July 23.

FlightLinez’ Brina Marcus told Patch that all systems are go and the Zipline will be open to the public at 11 a.m.

Marcus said weather delays and ensuring that the Zipline met all of its safety requirements are what pushed back the opening from July 1.

So, will you head down and check out the Zipline? If so, be sure to send us your photos and share your thoughts.

Perhaps one of the most UNDERWHELMING zip lines I have ever seen. I recommend using it as a trainer for something more impressive in the future.

Commercialization of our parks is wrong. Traffic is already horrible in Venice and so is parking. This projects takes away the serene, peacefulness of our beach park. Venice is not Disneyland and traffic needs to be reduced, not increased. What about the parking, build a parking structure with electric charging stations at Venice and Pacific. Focus on the solutions to our challenges, don't commercialize our parks Mike Bonin and VNC (Linda Lucks, listen up!)

An eyesore for sure. I hope this zip line is a huge bust! Too bad that this was Councilman Rosendahl's parting gift to Venice.

can't wait to try it with the kids, great idea, another beach attraction. Venice is Venice neighbors, get used to it. A large roller coaster coming soon, can't wait for that either.

Having Zipped through the jungle in Costa Rica a few years ago, this looks pretty tame, but fun for those under the age of 10 I guess - venice version and if it helps keep the "strollers"distracted and putzing along our bike path that's an additional bonus too!

Horrible looking pos zipline. Garbage, pure garbage, like the food at Sidewalk Cafe. Got food poisoning after eating there last week.
