TEMPE, Ariz. -- Big Surf Waterpark in Tempe is celebrating its 45th anniversary with a new special and a new attraction.

3TV's April Warnecke, who by her own admission is not a fan of heights, took not one, but two rides on Big Surf's new Mauna Kea Zip Line Friday. Both of them on live TV.

The line, which opened a week ago, stretches 300 feet across Big Surf's famous wave pool.

Riders must be taller than 40 inches and weigh more than 45 pounds. Te maximum weight is 250 pounds.

Zip line rides are $5 each, three for $12, or all-day unlimited for $20. Ticket are available at the Aloha Gift Shop near the park's entrance.

As part of its 45th anniversary celebration, Big Surf is offering four tickets for $45. That's more than half off. Regular general admission is $27.95 plus tax at the gate or $25 online.
