As part of the 2019 All-Star game festivities, fans can fly over the city like a Carlos Santana homer. Yes, a zipline is set to be installed in Major League Baseball's (MLB) Play Ball Park that long weekend.

Located in the Mall B section of Play Ball Park, the zipline is open from July 5 through 9, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m (with the exception of game day, when it closes at 6 p.m.)

A few caveats: to ride guests must weigh between 75 pounds and 275 pounds and sign a waiver to participate (those under 18 will need a signature from a parent/guardian).

Oh, yeah — don't show up intoxicated, or you could be denied entry, as no one wants a Girls Trip situation. Zipping also might not be the best choice for those afraid of heights since participants descend from a 120-foot launch tower.

In the event of shaky weather conditions, such as high winds or lightning, the zipline could close unexpectedly. Entrance to the Play Ball Park, which includes all amenities except the zipline, is $25 adults and $18 for children.

You can ride the zipline at an additional cost of $25 for advance purchase and $35 for same day purchase at the Play Ball Park Box Office at the Huntington Convention Center.
