(AP) The father of Karate Kid actor Ralph Macchio wants to build a 3,500-foot-long zip line ride from an Adirondack mountaintop to his tourist ranch in upstate New York.


The Adirondack Daily Enterprise (http://bit.ly/SdQDed) reports that Wild West Ranch owner Ralph Macchio Sr. is proposing a $1.5 million project that includes a launch platform and tower in Lake George, N.Y., near the top of French Mountain, which Macchio owns. A swath of trees would have to be cleared along the route to carry riders down a vertical drop of 700 feet to his ranch.


Riders would be driven to the top on an existing road.


Some nearby landowners are concerned about visual and noise impacts. State and local agencies are reviewing the project.


Macchio is hoping the attraction could open this summer.
