Great time zip lining

Went zip lining with two 50 year olds and two fifteen year olds. We were all able to complete the largest course. It was fantastic. Great guides Bill & Rob. Would do it again.

Gary was a fantastic tour guide on our ATV tour. We had the great fortune of a private tour and he did a fantastic job not only teaching us the basics, but also finding us great opportunities to explore, enjoy some speed and as much challenge as we were looking for. He was able to customize the ride to the... More

Had an awesome time with Eman and Joe as our guides (sorry again for kicking you Eman). Glad we did the tour with 5 zips. For me it took 3 zips to relax and by the 5th zip, I wanted to start over! My husband was brave from the very beginning. Will definitely do again! Thanks for a wonderful adventure!

We took the Explorer Zipline Tour, with Robb and Bill as our guides, and it was a tremendous experience! Bill and Robb were very personable and engaging. We did a lot of laughing. They were also patient and conscientious with the safety procedures which made our high-flying experience very relaxing and comfortable! We would love to come do it all... More

Four of us, part of our larger group, ages 19 to 73, arranged this as our last activity together for a "Brown County Family Weekend." All had a really fun time. We did 5 lines, and each was enjoyable. The efforts of the guides were really great (good training, good personalities ). The safety precautions were amazingly thorough (thank you... More

We had Neil Moore as our paintball ref. I've been to many paintball arenas and played in many games and have to say that he by far was the best referee and host that I have ever had. The games were well made closely watched and most of all he understood that we just came to have fun and he... More

At 65+ years old, this was not exactly on my bucket list, but a friend talked me into trying the Zip Lines and it was an awesome experience. By signing up for two different tours (the Canopy and the Screamer), we got to meet and work with 4 of the guides at various times throughout the day. They were all... More

We have a great time this weekend (6/13/15) zip lining. Doug and Brit were our guides and they were awesome! This was my first time zip lining and had a blast. Came with a group of five people for my friend and her husbands birthday. So wanted to release over that lake...ha! Signed Trouble :)
