My friend and I together with 13 others did the Eco Adventure Tour on Sunday. Despite some difficulties getting there due to many road closures by the Police for the cycling events around the scenic caves roads, we called them and they patiently guided us there in time for the 1.30 pm start. Our guides were Amber and Mary. They... More

Went to the Scenic Caves at the end of August. Great directions online and easy to find. Kids are 9, 7 and 5. I was a bit nervous with them being younger but they loved it! They loved climbing through the caves and on rocks - they even loved the views...but then again who wouldn't it. The views were breathtaking!... More

Thank you for sharing your family’s adventures and for the terrific review. We’re thrilled that your’ children loved every experience so much that they wanted to repeat it all over again. The admission does offer all day access, and your suggestion to other visitors to leave the property for a rest and return later in the day is a good... More

My teenage girls convinced me to do the Tree Top Adventure as well, yeah a bit pricey, however a Thrill of a lifetime. Climbed as high as 85`high amongst the trees, and the Zip Line was a treat.

Congratulations for checking this adventure off your bucket list. The thrill is a worth a lifetime of memories. Climbing 600 meters through the treetop canopy, across a web of 10 inch wide airborne walkways and platform decks spun together by cables is an exciting accomplishment. And after ziplining the forest and escarpment ziplines, you must feel triumphant. Way to go! More

We were able to find coupons online so we saved 12.00 very expensive for the day but well worth it if it's not too hot. Lots of native history stories along the trail

If you like the front seat of the biggest rollercoaster around, you will love this 1/2 mile zip line. Only disappointment, it goes so quick, so enjoy!

Thanks for your accolades regarding the Thunderbird Twin Zip Line. It’s more exciting than a roller coaster because you are harnessed in and are able to control your own speed. After walking up the 50 ft. circular staircase to the Thunderbird ‘nest’, you plummet off the highest point of the escarpment. You feel as though you’re soaring through the air... More

Our family loved this part of our trip. We did the caves as soon as it opened and had the place to ourselves. It felt like we were on our own adventure in the caves - my 6 year old loved it. They also have a great playground for kids and a little train to take them around. Great to... More

Thank you for your glowing review. Early morning is an excellent time to explore the park. The air is fresh. The animals are waking up and foraging for food. It’s a superbly natural environment for young and old. Did your young person try his hand at gemstone mining or mini-golf? Or feed the fish? Did you ride the tractor/wagon ride... More

Went this time specifically to try the Thunderbird Zip-Line, Canada's longest Zip at 2550 ft. This was AMAZING. So nice we did it twice.

We’re thrilled that you returned for the ultimate zipline experience. “Amazing” leads us to believe the Thunderbird surpassed your expectations. As you discovered, the Twin Zip is in the centre of the Park, at the highest point of the Escarpment. Good for you, to hike up and enjoy a second ride. It’s adrenaline-provoking, isn’t it? More

Liked the hike, the caves are small. Was expecting larger caves. The kids enjoyed the suspension bridge and park. I think the entry is overpriced. We didnt do any of the rides which cost extra because the kids were too small. I wouldn't go there again.

We’re glad that your family liked the hike, caves, bridge and park. The daily Park admission also offers numerous free activities – hope you didn’t miss them! Free: Rocky the Train, tractor/wagon ride to the bridge, Children’s Adventure Playground, Fish Pond. The Thunderbird Twin Zip Line is an additional cost and youth must be at least ten years of age...

We are a family who loves exploring caves. The week before we saw the Warsaw caves in Peterborough, we were VERY disappointed to pay $70 for 3 people to take a nature path and cross a suspension bridge. If you only want to 'see' and not 'explore' go to the Scenic caves.If you have a big family, be prepared to... More

Thank you for your feedback. If you are experienced ‘spelunkers’ who descend deep into the earth, our caves would have disappointed you. The nature trail not only takes you along the top of the Escarpment, but also down into the caverns, crevasses. Hope you didn’t miss them. In addition, Park admission includes: Rocky the Train, tractor/wagon ride, Children’s Adventure Playground,... More

Thanks for telling such a wonderful story about your family’s adventure. We regret that your son had a tumble and hope it didn’t dampen his spirits for the rest of the day.
