The zip line courses in Interlocken were so much more challenging and exciting and kept us busy for hours.

When we first saw this on the side of the mountain we knew that we wanted to do it but chickened out and left. However after mulling it over, two of us decided to go back up and do it! They strap you securely into hanging seats and there is room for four people to go at the same time.... More

A very quick but exhilarating ride in a spectacular setting! The woman staffing the ride was very friendly and there's clearly a strong emphasis on safety. Our family of 5 had a fun time. It looks a lot scarier than it is in practice, as the ride is not a free-fall and instead speeds along at a measured pace.

Iff you have gone zip lining before, this is basically the same thing. If there are 20 people waiting, it will be a 30 minute wait.

My husband and I did the First Flyer Fun Package and it was worth every penny! You start with a gondola ride up the mountain and then zip line down to get your trotti bikes, which were a blast! The views are just incredible!

Don't hesitate, it's worth it. Friendly staff who, when shown our 6 day Swiss rail travel pass, knocked money off when they didn't need to? Exhilarating!

Such a cool experience! Part of our group did not ride, too scared. But the brave ones were rewarded with an incredible view and experience.

It's real fun... Let's do it if you have enough time. The people at the Gondola Station and at the First Flyer were very friendly.

Flyer might not be the cheapest way of going down the First mountain (27CHF per person) but it's enjoyable. 40 seconds of ride is smooth and easy, yet exciting. You can easily make photos and movies throughout.
