I saw this mentioned on their website a few months ago. I can't believe the price they are charging. $59 with a lift ticket and $69 without. I've done a zipline before, it's not worth this much. When I'm there next weekend I'll watch to see how many people are paying up. http://www.firsttracksonline.com/News/2010/1/21/New-Zipline-Adventure-Now-Open-at-Boyne-Highlands-and-Boyne-Mountain/

Watched several groups do the zipline course on Saturday, and 1 group on Sunday. It's actually a series of 3 ziplines, i think. At the Highlands, it starts at the top of the Heather quad and spans from high point to another high point, making it's way down the hill. They are short rides, probably 100 to 200 yards each. While still expensive, isn't quite as bad as $59 for one ride. I'm not sure if you only get to do the course once or can go through again.
