SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) - SPEEDWAY, Ind. (WISH) - A Super Bowl hit is coming to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway for this year's race.
IMS spokesman Doug Boles confirmed there will be a zip line fans can ride on race day and the preceding weekend. Boles told WISH-TV it will be part of a larger area of festivities, some of which will take place in the snake pit area.
The zip line at the track will be smaller than the one that was so popular during Super Bowl XLVI. It will be 220 feet long, three stories tall and accommodate two people at a time. It's able to reach speeds of more than 20 mph and holds people from 50 to 250 pounds.

Before the race, the zip line will be north of the Tower Terrace, parallel to the part of the track where cars come out of Turn 4. It will be $5 to ride and run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 17, 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 18 and 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. on May 19.
On race day, May 26, it will be inside Turn 3 in the snake pit from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Anyone with an Indy 500 ticket and a snake pit wristband can ride it for free on a first-come, first-served basis.
The zip line at Super Bowl Village along Georgia Street was so popular it drew pre-dawn lines of people hoping to try the ride.
