Ready Orr not

In addition to the zip line, Orr Family Farm features a petting zoo, playground, maze and more.

Towering 20 feet above the ground, the new zip line at the Orr Family Farm, 14400 S. Western, is a surefire way to get kids’ adrenaline pumping.

The “agri-tainment” site is open now through Saturday for spring break, to debut its zip line.

“The owners wanted something new and exciting that would appeal to

older children,” said Lauren Lorenzen, spokeswoman for the farm. “It’s been tested out by the staff, and they all said it was a lot of fun.”

The line, which can reach speeds up to 25 mph, requires that riders weigh at least 70 pounds and go through training before taking the plunge.

“One of the best things about it is that it has four lanes so people can race,” Lorenzen said. “It’s something fun for adults to do as well.”

Farm hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and admission for spring break is $10.50. For more information, call 799-3276 or visit —Courtney Silva
