The classic way for a daredevil to go down Niagara Falls is in a barrel, but how are you supposed to enjoy the views in there? An attraction that made its debut on Friday offers a solution—and it's safer (though still spine-tingling), too. The 2,200-foot MistRider zipline stretches from the top to nearly the bottom of the Niagara Gorge on the Canadian side, offering intrepid visitors the chance to strap themselves into safety harnesses and go zooming down downstream (but in sight of) the Falls, getting spritzed with water along the way and presumably watching their lives flash before them so that they can track the series of mistakes that led to this highly questionable decision.
