Dave -Two rides come to mind that most likely mimic the zipline experience.

The first is in the new area at Busch Gardens Tampa, which feature single-seat cars that hang from a cable which is lifted and lowered to make the car go forward and return. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yczb40OBI4c

The second is Vertigo at Walibi Belgium. This coaster features four-seat inverted cars that roll along a giant cable that serves as the track. This one didn't turn out too well, as it was torn down without operating for more than a few months. http://www.rcdb.com/ig3457.htm?picture=22

Dollywood makes sense for this because of the terrain this attraction utilizes.

Could they pull something like this off at a flat land park? They would have to build a few tall towers with elevators.

^"Tall towers with elevators" is exactly how the ziplines at BGA/T function. I sure would love to get one shot at those - and probably could, but you need a kid (and that seems a little extreme for just a short zipline ride).

No Gator, I meant a large scale zip line. I believe you have to be under 13 to ride BGA's from what I read. So no go for you even with a kid. :)
