94-year-old takes zip line ride for birthday

TOPEKA, Kan. (WRIC/CNN) — A 94-year-old Kansas woman decided to celebrate her birthday in a unique way — by riding a zip line!

Two years ago, daredevil Eleanor Parnell of Topeka, Kansas, had knee surgery… but she didn’t let it stop her party.

As family and friends cheered her on, Eleanor took the ride that she’d been dreaming of.

She said she’s wanted to cross something off her bucket list every year since her 80th birthday. One year she took a hot air balloon ride! Another birthday, she went on a drag race.

In her own words, Eleanor said “I have a wild streak in me.”
