Hundreds of thrill seekers have tried out the latest new attraction in Liverpool. The UK's first city centre zip-wire launched in the city this weekend. It's nearly 1000 feet long and runs high above the city centre. Organisers say they're expecting thousands more to try it out whilst it's in town.

The UK's first city centre zip-wire launches in Liverpool this weekend. Thrill seekers will climb a 115 foot station on Church Street and fly over shoppers on a wire at speeds of up to 40mph.

It’s going to be an amazing attraction for Liverpool and will add a real injection of excitement to our high street.
