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

We have decided to start a yearly tradition of paintball and "camping" in the cabins. We had an absolute blast playing paintball and standing around a camp fire. We are all in our mid-30's and loved every minute of it. The staff was super friendly and helpful. We have been here several times over the last 10 years and have... More

A group of 18, all first time zip liners, embarked on an adventure on a cool November day. This was an amazing experience and every one had a blast challenging themselves to fly like superman. We did the superhero zip line and got 3 flights per person. Our last few people went in almost total darkness. Our guides were wonderful... More

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary in Brown County and scheduled an ATV Tour at Explore Brown County for an afternoon. We had an absolutely great time. It was my first time to ride an ATV and Gary, our guide, did an outstanding job training us on how to ride an ATV and went over safety concerns. Once... More

October is the perfect time to take the tour. The fall scenery is beautiful and our guide Mike was exceptional. A small problem with our reservation but they worked out the details and it was a great time!

Had friends from out of town and was looking for something to do on a cold November 1st night. Bill and Tim our Zip guides did an outstanding job. Our friends had zipped in Costa Rica and preferred these lines over that zip. The crisp air, the moon shining on the lake, zipping into a dark abyss, and so many... More

We had a great time with the kids. We just went on three lines to get the kids over there fear of it all. After the first one we were all hooked. Can't wait to go back for more!

We surprised our two teenage daughters with a zip lining trip at Explore Brown County. I originally called a less expensive local zip lining outfit but was not impressed with their limited available times and lack of phone friendliness. The staff at Explore were friendly and knowledgeable right from the first phone conversation. Bill and Tim were the guides. They... More
