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

My office went to Empower on 9/27 for a team building adventure and we had a blast! Becky, Dan, Joe and Kyle were all awesome, patient and very supportive. We had so much fun doing the canopy zip lining tour and the crew made all of us feel so comfortable. They were so caring with anyone who needed a little... 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!

But I have to admit, I did get scared. Great place to try ziplining for the first time. There are 5 lines, some longer than others. The guides were great and took care of the group of 10 of us at all times! Very well run place.

This was a really fun activity and it is good for any age! There was a 75 year old woman in our group. The guides were very knowledgeable, friendly and their number one concern was our safety. They are also great if someone is struggling - very patient and they didnt make them feel stupid or "less than". We had... More

Zip lines are fun, the staff is professional and fun, the cooperative games teach far more than a classroom.

I saw the Moonlight Zip-line tour online while researching our road trip from NY to Cape Cod. When I called ahead to get some details, Dan was so enthusiastic that I booked it right then! Despite the cloudy sky (no moon) and slight drizzle, the tour went on and the guides revved us all up for an awesome time! We... More

I did this great zip lining and climbing experience with my 20 year old sons and we had a blast. The leaders are very thorough and careful but also friendly, cheerful and jovial. They moved with us at our pace and we were pretty quick to our own surprise. For us, the course was not extremely difficult or challenging but... More
