Transcript for Sam Champion Ziplines Through NYC
Finally, it's time. Sam, the adventurer, down the block from us in times square, where he's agreed to go zip lining through new york city. Sam, are you ready? Lara, I'm ready. Have you ever thought about what it would be like to fly through the sky in new york city, just like spider-man does in the movies. That's the macy's building beside me. You can look into the third-story windows at macy's as you zip line by her. This is part of the new york city summer streets program. You have 14 blocks of streets blocked off for 3 weekends. You can do anything you want. You can go from the brooklyn bridge all the way to central park without traffic. There's games for kids. There's yoga. There's food. You're my guy to do the zip line adventure you've set up. What do I need to know about this? WE'RE GOING TO HOOK YOU IN. &-pWHEN YOU Get tothe ottom,make sure you keep your feet up. All right, greg. Let's try it. Let's just hook it up and do it. Alright. See if there's a payoff to this kind of event. You do have to be a certain weight/height here. But I can do it. I got the weight restriction. Are you ready? Hey. Not bad. New york city, flying through the streets, like superman over new york city. Here's the deal. For only three weekends, you get the chance to do this in new york if you're here. We're going to introduce you to the folks that tell you everything you need to know about it. And one of the cool things, lara, if you're still there, standing up there, you're looking into the windows, just like you'd imagine you could. It's not that frightening. There's a line of people ready to do it. It does require a certain amount of upper body strength, I'm sure. That's what it looks like. Lara, are you still there? I am, sam. That was remarkable. Your form, I need judges' awards on that. 8.5. Really spectacular. I felt like I was in the pike position forome of the excursion down. I think my toes were kind of pointed. So, I think I really deserve that 9. Listen, you can go again, if you don't mind. And this time, we want a double-twist. We will go back.
