There is no other way to describe this other than using the word "awesome." It is safe, fun and my only complaint is that I wish the zip lines were longer. The guides are professional and funny. I'll do it again next time I go to Catalina which I hope is soon!!

This was so cool! We wore Capri workout pants with tank tops in 70 degree weather in the AM - Very comfortable. Our guides were awesome! Very knowledgeable and full of personality. They have courtesy lockers for your personal belongings. They even had specific helmets for my husbands go-pro camera to strap on. Easy walking distance too from everything!

My sister and I signed up for this a few days before our cruise (that happened to stop at Catalina Island). If you try to book through the cruise ship and you find that there are no available times, do what we did and call the vendor directly - they had room at a time when the cruise ship said... More

The staff goes out of their way to educate you and explain everything that will happen. I have a fear of falling and I'm less than steady on my feet in height situations, so I was feeling the fear! Between the education and the clever braking system I felt confident and by the third run I stopped gripping the handles... More

My guide was very knowledgeable of the area and shared some interesting facts. It was such a rush and overall so much fun!! I highly recommend that everyone try this! I will definitely do this...

Right from the start the employees of the Zip experience were amazing. The booking was easy and the 2 guides, David D. and Denny were professional and super funny at the same time. They made us feel safe while enjoying the thrill of ZIPPING. We would do it again.

We were able to get a reservation without a hassle. we were able to use a discount that gave us 50 dollars off of price. The 2 guides we got were amazing and made us feel safe and got us harnessed up and ready to go. We went with a smaller group. It was alot of fun and a great... More
