I recently decided, despite an unbelievable fear of heights, to zip line at The Canyons. I doubt I will ever forget taking that first step off the edge of the landing, but after that I never looked back, except to enjoy the view! I haven't had that kind of fun since I was a child. Each new zip was more... More

My husband and I wanted a quick exciting get away from the norm and that is exactly what we got! The land is breathtaking, service was impeccable, the adventure was thrilling! Going to go back and bring the kids next time!

The guides Stephanie and Nicole were both horsewomen who grew up in this environment and absolutely rocked the tour with their knowledge and expertise. We hope to check out... More

This was a great activity! The scenery is gorgeous, the guides talented, and the experience is an adrenaline rush. My mother - who was 70 at the time - even enjoyed the entire experience. I can't wait to go again!!!

What an awesome day we had at The Canyons Zip Line! Absolutely exciting and the property looks like you're in the mountains! What a thrilling ride, the zips go over woods, lakes and rock cliffs. The staff was friendly, informative and fun! Following the zip line experience we took to the trails on their horses for a wonderful horseback riding... More

This was the time of our lives! My Aunt was scared to begin with, but she had been through cancer and figured if she could make it through that, there's nothing she can't do. The fear seemed to leave after the first few zips because the guides made us feel so secure. This experience was over the top fun! We... More

Fabulous frightening fun! We went with another couple and did the zip line at night during a full moon. It was beautiful. It was also terrifying, as I'm afraid of heights! But these guys are pros and big on safety. Friendly staff. Awesome experience!
