PHOENIX -- Are you ready for some high flying excitement? You can head to the Phoenix Zoo for 300 feet of zip lining fun with the FlyWire zip line ride.

The FlyWire zip line ride supports two people at a time so you'll be able to race with your friends at speeds up to 20 miles per hour on your way to becoming experienced "zipologists"!

3TV's Ryan O'Donnell gave it a go.

The zip line, which is located across from the Conservation center, will be at the zoo through April 30. It's $10 per zip. Digital photos of you in action are $5 each.

If flying isn't your thing, you might consider a camel ride. O'Donnell tried that, too. (See video below)

The camel rides are one of the most popular things to do at the zoo. Rides, which are available daily (weather permitting) through the end of May, are $5. During the summer, the camel rides are a weekend thing. A souvenir photo is $5.

Admission to the Phoenix Zoo is $20 for adults and $10 for children 3-12.
