Zip into the Weekend

Canopy Tours

It's obviously easy to crack a smile on a zip line, based off this photo on Canopy Tours' website. The company is behind Catalina's new zip line.

Since we just know you’ll want to avoid the draconian practices of some local constabulary organizations, perhaps it’s time for a family outing this Labor Day weekend.

DFW Adventure Park could have just the getaway.

The park offers zip-line rides for folks who enjoy the breeze in their face and sullied undergarments in their jeans.

The outdoor amusement and recreation grounds also features about every way imaginable to shoot your friends — paintball, laser tag, airsoft — except for real bullets, and it has all-terrain vehicle tracks and motocross paths.

Want to make an entire weekend of it? Go right ahead because the adult-size playground also has camping areas.
There you go. Weekend planned. You’re welcome.
