We visited this place guided by the positive reviews found at Trip Advisor. They were right. It was a first time zip lining for our family of 5 and we had an awesome time. The young fellows helping us through the zip lining tour were hilarious. They make us laugh all the way and there was not a boring moment.... More

While on a weekend getaway in Helen my wife and I went on the 2 hr mountain ride. The terrain we very rough and there was no stop in between so it ended up being a continuous ride. The scenery was pretty since it is fall and the leaves are changing but there weren't any great views on the trail.... More

We went to Sunburst with a group and had a wonderful time! We went ziplining (through tunnels, past fountains, upside down=awesome!) and horseback riding after eating a picnic lunch we packed. They have picnic tables right out front and after lunch the kids were able to play with the many animals around (gentle cats & dogs roaming and pigs and... More

Just visited the stables on October 27th for their 2 hour horseback guided excursion. First off the staff was amazing, we were greeted promptly with a friendly demeanor even though we were running late for our 10AM reservation. Our 2 guides who were a young guy and girl were awesome. They talked to us the whole, made the ride fun... More

Went to Sunburst for horseback riding. great 2 hour tour......great guide.He didn't talk so much so i thoroughly enjoyed the ride. He could sense, I guess, that I had been riding horses all my life. It was a wonderful ride...scenic...wooded...It gave me the chance to escape. When I arrived back at the stables I saw a whole family so exhilarated... More

This is a great place for zip lining especially with kids that are too small for other places. This zipline can accommodate everyone. And its unique. The only zipline around that goes through a tunnel and a Water geyser. The flyboard experience is great. Cheapest price anywhere. And you can do it quickly and easy. Great place.

We had and absolutely wonderful time at Sunburst Stables. My 14 year old boys and 11 year old girl thoroughly enjoyed the two hour zipline and 1.5 hour atv ride, especially since the boys were able to drive their own atvs. The staff is professional and entertaining, and the facility is fabulous. While we waited between tours, the kids were... More

Our daughters 12th birthday landed us at sunburst stables for a romp thru the woods on atv's. Our kids had never been on an atv, much less driven one. The staff was excellent teachers and provided a practice run in an arena before the tour. The honda 250cc was plenty for the type of riding we encountered. We rode past... More

The family really wanted to do a horse back ride while on vacation, and Sunburst stables provided us with an excellent ride. The guide was really friendly, the horse gentle, and the length just right! (we chose the 1 hour ride) I don't love riding horses, but mine was so easy to manage. The guide asked us if we wanted...

Even now looking at their web site makes me want to go there. We were excited to zip their 12 zip lines as advertised the drive from Helen would be short. We get there and no one is in the office so we wait. We wait 15 minutes and a girl who looks like she works there walks by, never... More
