The experiences are so well designed and presented, and everyone working there is knowledgeable, witty and upbeat. I felt completely safe yet enjoyed the thrills.

Me my mom and my dad went here for my spring break. It was amazing. We all really enjoyed it. Our guides Justin and Jess were great as well. They made it fun and cracked jokes, but at the same time they cared about our safety. I will definitely be coming back, but I will bring a bunch of friends... More

The course is fun and great training for learning jumps, but lots of heavy diesel equipment being operated inside the cavern during business hours makes the air nauseating. Dump trucks and excavating equipment running unrefined dirty diesel fuel. Also heavy dirt dust particulates in the air. I left with a bad headache. Where does the dirt come from that is... More

We went on the tram tour and my son did the rope course. The tour was very interesting and educational. We both enjoyed it very much. My 12 yr old had a blast on the rope course. It seemed a little pricey at first but was completely worth every penny. You can go thru it twice, which was nice as... More

During the hold months this is the place to zip The darkness adds to the thrill. Wasn't thrilled with the rope bridges. An indoor bike course just recently opened. Good to see they aren't quitting on ideas
