Participants begin with ground school and receive safety instructions on how to navigate through the course. They then move on to the green course to demonstrate they have the ability to properly use their equipment. After completing these two stages, participants will progress through the levels - each level becomes progressively more challenging! Monkey Trunks courses feature ziplines, swinging beams, tightropes, rolling logs, hanging tires, cargo nets and more! Each Monkey Trunks location includes a children's course for the littlest of monkeys, with platforms no more than 6' off the ground. The children's courses include 6-8 challenges with an 80' zipline at the finish. Reservations are encouraged and can be made anytime online or by phone. « less

The staff was very helpful, my daughter enjoyed climbing around and the zip lines. I enjoyed watching her enjoy herself. We will be back in the new year to have even more fun, I'm sure of it.

We had a great time! Just wish on the smaller zipline there was something other then the rocks to skip across. Also my helmet strap go caught on the larger zipline when I went down which ended up in a rope like burn to my neck area. Other then that it was a blast

I won't speak for everyone, just my experience there. I took my 9 and 11 year old kids to Monkey Trunks at the end of August and my 11 year old couldn't get enough of it, but my 9 year old (after 2 1/2 hours) had had enough. It cost a pretty penny (they are older so too big for... More

We visited Monkey Trunks at the end of August 2014. After getting into our harnesses and a brief training & safety intro we were off. Although I'm somewhat scared of heights (ok, maybe not the best activity for me), I felt comfortable doing the entire course. Everyone in our group had a great time. You can challenge yourself at various... More

My husband and I were on our first trip to Maine and I decided to book this zip line extravaganza for us (he wasn't thrilled). They prefer reservations and require payment in full, so I figured it was for safety reasons as to not overcrowd the facility. Boy was I wrong. The place itself is great: friendly staff, amazing setup,... More

My best friend and I went to Monkey Trunks in search if an active alternative to a day of shopping or a lunch date (and we really wanted to ride the zip line). We were so impressed with how much fun, even challenging at some points, the ropes course was. We stayed there for about two hours and neither of... More

My 10 yr old daughter and I had a lot of fun. Staff was helpful and fun. The harnesses are great. Some of the obstacles there wasn't enough slack on the harnesses to really go for it without "cheating". A good time. Hot in the direct sun.

Great place for an outing. It is fun, challenging, and a good workout. But it's a bit expensive. We spent 3 hours there and that was plenty of time. We paid $39 each which is more than an amusement park. Although it was fun, I do t think it's worth that much.

The website only says your child must be able to reach 48". It says NOTHING about how old you must be. My son was tall enough, so we made a reservation and paid online, then drove an hour to get there. Once there, they refused to let him climb, because he wasn't 5. Not every employee follows that rule, though,... More

First time visit and loved it. We will be going back this week my children absolutely loved it here. All the people working were very nice and helpful too. I got stuck on the zip line and help was there immediately!
