LAKE GEORGE, N.Y. — The father of “Karate Kid” star Ralph Macchio said he wants a 3,500-foot-long zip line ride from an Adirondack mountaintop to his ranch in upstate New York.

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reported that Wild West Ranch owner Ralph Macchio Sr. is proposing the $1.5 million project which would include a launch platform and tower in Lake George, N.Y.

The paper reported that trees would have to be cleared along the route to carry riders down a vertical drop of 700 feet to his ranch.

Ralph Macchio Sr. said he is hoping the attraction could open this summer.
