The goal is to connect Mt. Washington to the North Shore with a zip line.
Here's a video of what the zip line style will be https://vimeo.com/48903726
A zip line alone is great. A zip line off of one of the most picturesque urban vistas in the world is fantastic. Imagine riding the incline up, zipping over to a field trip at the Carnegie Science Center, a concert at Stage AE, Casino, or a Steelers / Pirates game.
The seat (as opposed to a harness) will allow a greater audience to use the zip line and the automatic retrieval system increases throughput. (80-90 riders per hour with 4 zip lines)
