This was my first time ziplining and it was amazing! The only underground ziplining facility, the guides are great and all you have to do is zip! They do all the hooking and unhooking for you! I felt safe in ROBINSON and EMILY's hands! We had a group of all women, 3 generations of family and had an absolute blast!... More

Way to go Gordon and Kay! They were incredible! No one would know this was Kay's first gig. She was amazing and made us all feel comfortable. Gordon kept things light and joked with us but made sure we were safe and serious when we needed to be. I would recommend this for families teens couples etc. Thanks guys for... More

I've been zip lining a couple times before in different places but this one is now my favorite! Being in the dark made it that much more fun! If you have a camera, bring it! They have little pouches you can use so you won't drop it while your zipping. If you forget it, no problem because they have random... More

Took our children age 14, 12 and 9 there today and did the 2 hour zip tour. IT was "super cool" said my 9 year old, and even the older kids really enjoyed it. Felt very safe, good explanations, very nice guides and very interesting to be zip lining down inside the caverns. One warning would be a lighter person... More

I tried the tram, the quest, and the mega zips. The zips are good, but I don't think they are better than "Go Ape", and for the price we could have had some other obstacles mixed in besides the 2 bridges. The tram was okay. I had trouble hearing sometimes, and I know I wasn't the only one. I didn't... More

My teenage son and I did the Mega Zips on a recommendation from a friend and I am glad we did. We got there early on a Saturday and there was practically no one there. We were grouped with a small party that was having a birthday. Rich and Robinson were our guides and they were great. My son was... More
