Modern stadia are packed to the rafters with new technology, but the Atlanta Braves are planning a particularly unique addition to SunTrust Park – a zip line.
At Atlanta Business Chronicle and Atlanta Sports Council’s annual Business of Sports Summit, the team’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, Derek Schiller, announced that the stadium’s fan experience would be enhanced by installation of a new zip line facility.
Details are thin on the ground, but Schiller did explain that, “We are very family friendly, and that is a significant portion of our audience. Well over 50% of our fans are families that come with their child to a game.”
It was revealed that the line will be located behind the team’s video board, and will transport fans from one side of the concourse to the other.
