For thrill seekers, the Super Bowl won't be the only excitement in downtown Indianapolis.

Starting on January 27th, thousands of brave souls are expected to climb a 95-foot tower, strap into a harness and go soaring 800 feet across the Super Bowl Village toward Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Indianapolis Star reports fans say chilly weather won't deter them from buying $10 tickets to ride the Super Bowl Village's signature attraction.

Super Bowl organizers borrowed the zip line idea from the 2010
Winter Olympics in Vancouver, where fans waited up to four hours for a ride. Organizers even contract with the same Canadian company that ran Vancouver's zip line.

ZipTrek CEO David Udow says the zip line should be able to handle up to 120 riders an hour.
