FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
GoZip and ERi announce the addition of thrilling new attractions and zip lines at Pirate Cove Resort & Marina
GoZip Pirate Cove to offer exhilarating adventures: “Plank Walk” Powerfan® Freefall, Giant “Bosun Swing,” Rum Runner” motorized zip line and “Pirates Quest” zip line tour.
LAS VEGAS – May 16, 2012 – GoZip and ERi are proud to announce the addition of GoZip Pirate Cove at the award-winning Pirate Cove Resort & Marina in Needles, CA nestled between Route 66 and the Colorado River. Featuring exhilarating adventures for thrill seekers and families alike, GoZip Pirate Cove will offer four new, state-of-the-art attractions, including the “Plank Walk” Powerfan Freefall, an 80-foot Giant “Bosun Swing,” the high-speed “Rum Runner” motorized zip line and an unparalleled “Pirates Quest” zip line tour. All rides and tours are scheduled to begin in June 2012.
Conveniently located next to the Pirate Cove Restaurant & Bar, GoZip Pirate Cove will include:
• Guests will experience the thrill of free falling (just like jumping out of an airplane) on the 80-foot “Plank Walk” Powerfan® Freefall. The innovative fan mechanism will slow you down just before your feet touch the sandy shore for a nice, gentle landing.
• Did you enjoy swinging when you were a kid? Our 80-foot, Giant “Bosun Swing” will bring back fond memories and leave you smiling, as you swing back and forth along the Colorado River.
• Unlike any other zip line in the world, the innovative “Rum Runner” motorized zip line is powered by 30HP electric motors, which will simultaneously whisk up to six riders more than 1,000 feet away. Riders will travel at speeds of more than 55 mph.
• The adventures continue with a guided “Pirates Quest” zip line tour that will run diagonally across the peninsula. The tour consists of five zip lines, ranging from 312 feet to 1,300 feet, two towers and one 80 ft suspension bridge. The tour accommodates groups of 10 guests at one time and lasts approximately two hours.
Guests will learn about the great Colorado River basin and the historic Route 66, while zipping in style.
