What a great time!!! Richard & Craig, were the best...experienced, assuring, and absolutely fun, fun, fun! My husband and sister did the "express tour" and said it was sensational. Another "bucket list" item off my sister's list!

Went with the college on a day trip to go zip lining. We did the 3 hour tour with the 9 zip lines, 2 bridges, and the rapel. Our guides were Kevin and Devin and they were amazing and did a great job. There was so much to see and was so much fun! Everyone was so friendly and the... More

I booked this trip for my husband and I...celebrating our 35th Anniversary. Looked like fun and I knew he would enjoy, having lots of skydiving experience earlier. However, I had NO IDEA of how high or far we would be "zipping"! The 2 Guides, Kevin and Nicole, were so reassuring, fun and professional that after I stopped being a "tree-hugger"... More

If the views and design of the zip line course was not already top notch, the employees were 5 star as well. From the receptionist that bothered to return our call within minutes, to the well humored (if not corny jokesters!) guides and gift shop cashiers, all made us feel welcome and confident that we were safe.

Our group consisted of myself, my son, my friend and her son. (sons - 19 & 20 yrs old) I have been zip-lining once before (some where else) and had a blast and thought could this time really be as fun as last time - - well, it certainly was! There were less zips, but some of them were longer... More

We will definitely be returning in the near future for the full tour or even a moonlight tour. This was our first time zip lining, so we completed the shorter express tour. We were a little nervous with the "rain or shine", no refund policy, HOWEVER, we were pleasantly surprised when we received a phone call the morning of our... More

We were thrilled to find a hipline with great scenery so close to Orlando! We showed up without reservations as we just arrived and took a chance. The staff and supervisor were great and were able to fit our group of 5 in so we didn't have to drive in on another day! That is wonderful customer service! Our guides... More

I bought tickets for my boyfriend for his birthday. He had been ziplining before, but I had not, and it was a lot of fun! The first day we tried to go we got rained out, and we were given the option to reschedule, take a raincheck, or receive a full refund. We opted to reschedule for the next day... More
