Dan and the crew at Empower offered our company a memorable experience! What is nice, is that it is structured for every skill level. Our group felt safe, secure and most of all entertained! There are definitely some areas where one's athleticism is put to the test. The scavenger hunt was also awesome. When thinking about your next Team building... More

I went with a couple friends to celebrate a milestone birthday. The facility was easy to find and clean, the staff was friendly and funny, and the course was exhilarating. We did the zip line tour and it went by very quickly. I would recommend adding on the canopy plus tree climbs to make a full morning or afternoon out.

We were four middle aged woman looking for something fun to do. I was the only one who had ziplined before. One of the four was afraid of heights. All 4 of us loved empower ziplining! It was a beautiful fall day and we were 7.5 stories up in the trees. You are 100% safe and led by excellent guides.... More

Did the moonlight ziplining and it was an exceptional experience. The staff members were friendly and helpful, the course itself was fun and challenging, and it was overall a wonderful time.

The staff that work here really love their jobs so it makes zip lining that much more enjoyable. It was easy to reserve a spot, easy to get to, and the tour goes by quickly. A fun two hours :)

This is the second time I been ziplining and it was really fun. We had Lucas and Chris and they were great. The ziplining course had a "challenge obstacle." We got to choose from a cargo net and tight rope or go over two bridges. I chose to do the bridges. They were harder (mentally) than I thought and Lucas... More

I have participated in the zip line course a few times and it has been fun and exciting each time. Joe and all of the staff are supportive and friendly. It is a great team building experience. They were patient and encouraging with my nephew who started out timid but by the end wanted to do it all again. We... More

Even though it was not my first time zip lining, it always feels like it is. Had another great experience at Empower. Surrounded by people you have never met and by the end of the event, you are almost best friends. Great for team building or just challenging yourself to try something different. Dan and Jen are terriffic!
