Zip It

Flightlinez brings ziplining to Venice


We were outraged when we heard about it, too.

The new Superman does not wear any underwear.

But for multiple reasons, you should definitely wear some — if only to prevent innocent bystanders from looking up and seeing your own Kryptonian thunder when soaring between the beach and boardwalk at Venice's Flightlinez.

Finally approved by the neighborhood council, this new zipline is scheduled to open by the end of the month. And the summer-long pop-up project is probably the best way to not only see the surf, but to navigate the Metropolis-style traffic on the Venice boardwalk.

Fly from the Skate Park to the basketball courts from 11a to sunset, high above the reggae mixtape vendors, skate punks, and tourists.

Sure, $20 per 0.136364 miles may be pricier than Uber, but anything's worth it to impress Lois.
