Remember, folks: the Embarcadero zip line, brought to you by some sort of joyous Canadian tourism board, opens for business at today.

SFCitizen has word of today's kickoff festivities:

"The zip line will start from a launch tower 80 feet off the ground and will carry users 680 feet to a 30-foot-tall landing tower. The zip-line will be free to the public and open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. through April 18. Thursday’s launch event is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. and will include performances by the Le-La-La Dancers, an aboriginal dance troupe from Vancouver Island."

The line will stay put until April 18.
