We take pride in being a zero-impact operation. We don't drill into any rock or pull up any grass. We'll use cranes, and we're trying to arrange the rigging so no cable will even touch water when we set up. The 'Maid of the Mist', I would hope, would continue to run.

Rule of thumb to even be on the wire: you have to be able to do ten chin-ups and pull your body over the wire ten times.
