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.

Very safe and efficient attraction, ran in a smooth manner, staff very friendly, only fault, I think it is pretty expensive for the amount of time you spend on it. But worth it if you haven't done anything similar.

This is such a fun day out, we went on a sunny day which was great for the views from the top. At Grindlewald you hop on a gondola for the journey up to the summit. We went on the First Flyer, this was a fab way to get down to the next level, 800 metres in 40 seconds....brilliant! Going... More
