Cygnus eTransactions Group, Inc. (OTC: CYGT) today announced that it has launched an online ticketing system for a unique attraction called the Purple People Bridge Cl!mb (http://www.purplepeoplebridgeclimb.com). Guests can now purchase gift certificates for the 2 1/2 hour experience at the apex of the Newport Southbank Bridge, also known as the Purple People Bridge, located on the Ohio river between Newport, Kentucky and Cincinnati, Ohio. Online, real-time reservations for bridge Cl!mb tours will also be available shortly before the new attraction opens for business.
The Purple People Bridge Cl!mb, developed by International Theme Park Services, Inc. ("ITPS"), is an adventure tour starting at the foot of the 'Purple People Bridge' in Newport, KY. It is the first of its kind in the United States. Climbers will embark upon a unique journey that will take them up among the upper trestles of the bridge's five spans, providing them with a bird's eye view of Northern Kentucky and downtown Cincinnati. At the apex of the bridge, climbers walk out onto a glass pathway 50 feet long suspended directly over the Ohio River. Climbers also will be taken on a path at a lower elevation near the Ohio side to get a close-up look at its 133 year old architecture.
