PHOTOS: Zoo Atlanta's Treetop Trail
Thursday marked the opening of a new aerial playground at Zoo Atlanta. Guests got to explore Treetop Trail for the first time. Zoo officials say the playground gives guests the chance to experience the zoo from the perspective of tree-dwelling animals while navigating a series of rope ladders, bridges, nets, and tightrope-style foot-lines. Each participant is tethered to an overhead tracking system and secured in a full body harness while completing the two-level challenge.
