New Action Zip Line at Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach!
Visitors to the 37th Annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach will have much more than on-track racing thrills awaiting them!

The Auto Club Lifestyle Expo in the Long Beach Convention and Entertainment Center, free to all race ticketholders during the April 15-17 race weekend, has added the aerial excitement of the Action Zipline, a 180-foot-long thrill ride on a cable strung high above the Long Beach Arena floor!

For only $15, Zipline riders will wear a special harness attached to a cable and, according to Belinda Bain, President of Action Zipline Tours of Big Bear, “could hit speeds of nearly 40 mph as they soar across the Arena.”

Zipline riders must be at least eight years of age, weigh between 75 and 250 pounds and fit into a 42-inch harness.

“This is an exciting first for us and it will add a new and spectacular experience for all who dare to participate,” said Jim Michaelian, president and CEO of the Grand Prix Association of Long Beach.

“Along with the Green Power Prix-View, action sports demonstrations, electric car rides and the Kid’s Zone with simulators and video games, the Auto Club Lifestyle Expo will be a ‘must’ for family fun on race weekend.”
