We wanted something close to do for Spring Break. I remembered someone mentioning zip lines in Brown Co and we decided to give it a try. After reading about each of the tours and deliberating, we decided on an introductory type. Our guides Daron and Bill made the experience so much fun. My kids are fearless but I am terrified... More

Wanted to do something different for spring break. Entire family loved this. Don't know if it was just because we were visiting during the off-season, but there were plenty of opportunities for a discount to apply to their zip lines depending upon where you look. I know I saw some deals on Groupon or Living Social and I believe the... More

Staff is great. Friendly, fun & experienced. We went with 3 kids but only 2 were old enough to participate. The staff allowed us to spectate to get photos. My 8 year old trie this for the first time and the guide put her at ease, leaving her with a fun experience and eager to go again. Greatly recommended!!

We planned our adventure for last Sunday, so by-golly four of us did it. We really didn't notice the cold (high of 36) after we started our adventure. Anna and Sam made it clear that we were totally safe which was a needed encouragement. The Explorer trip provided just the right amount of adventure. We got to walk across a... More

Great trip with excellent safe guides. We did the Explorer Trip on March 16. It was a cold day, but the zips warmed you up. Any time of the year would be fun. Plan to go again. Our guides Anna and Sam did a great job and safety was always number one. Great views.

The wife and I did the 5 zip tour and had a great time. We were both impressed with the detail to safety both guides exhibited, while still having fun and making our experience very enjoyable. After our kids saw our pictures, they want us to take them with us when we return.

The views were beautiful, especially over the lake. We did the 5 line Explorer tour and it was so worth... More

This was the best zip tour we've been on in Brown County. Zach & Roo were very personable and knowledgeable. Safety was their number #1 priority! Would definitely go back for another tour....maybe the night time one.
