Webster, N.Y. (WHAM) - It was a day of celebrating seniors at the Bay View YMCA on Tuesday.

And how did they celebrate? With ziplining!

Nearly 400 senior citizens came out to participate. The theme of this year's celebrations was 'Fun Never Retires.'

Some of the people at the party said the zipline reminded them of the old swingset in the backyard like the good old days.

"We hope it brings them back to the time where making a friendship bracelet, or they've never ziplined before but they've seen their kids or their grandkids zipline before," said Laura Fasano, VP of of Healthy Living at the YMCA of Greater Rochester. "They can go home and say 'Wanna know what I did? I went down a zipline!''"

Other activities at the event included water exercises, boating and a Nordic walk.
