The only thing that could make this place better is if they had a tour that included ALL of their zip lines. That would be the ultimate zip line adventure. If you are worried about safety and how to stop on the other side, this place has a break system and everything is hands free. We had great time &... More

I will start by saying, I am afraid of heights and moving platforms. I would just lone to say that Bill and Natalie are awesome. Very reassuring and fun! My grandchildren were amazed that Mamaw went. Have a good time with my friend, Treefrog. Great place for other adventures, as well. Teri Mincey

I took my 10 and 12 year old zip lining for the first time. Though I was concerned that fears would get the best of them, I signed us up for the canopy tour (5 zips, 2 sky bridge, etc). It was awesome!! The guides, Erik and Nate, were wonderful. They both went above and beyond to ensure we had... More

This place was a blast!! Came in from out of town, and this place was recommended! It was a great stop during our vacation! Went four-wheeling even through an advanced route and never once felt unsafe! The instructor was very thorough and energetic! Next time we want to try paint-ball or air-soft and definitely zip-lining!!

My husband and I took our nephews for the ziplining. We did the Explorer tour and the Topshot. Nate and Matt were our guides. Both Nate and Matt were professional. Both Nate and Matt were fun. I hadn't ziplined before and quite nervous. Both Nate and Matt helped me feel more comfortable while being patient and fun. Both Nate and... More

Cute little town approx 15 minute drive from IU campus. We had heard about how scenic it is during the fall due to the leaf color change. However, it was a really nice place in April as well. Alot of cute shops and nice retailers. A fun day!

We enjoyed our stay and the ziplining but the port-o-potties were horrible so we were at the end of the camp and had to walk to the bathrooms. Other than that, a nice campground.

We decided to have our annual company outing at Explore Brown County this year. They were extremely accommodating and very organized. Everyone that helped us was well prepared and knowledgeable about what they offered. I was most impressed with the safety knowledge of the zip line workers. Our safety was at the forefront of their minds the entire time. We... More
