Monkey Trunks offers fun for children, adults and families...

Monkey Trunks offers fun for children, adults and families! 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.

My husband and I have done ropes courses before and have zip-lined in different areas of the country. This was the first time we could put both together. It was such an awesome experience. It was cold but we handled it well...I would have brought gloves had I thought of it...the lines were cold and can be rough on the... More

great family, couple, single fun! This was a challenge if you hate heights, but so worth it when you make it to the zip line or the swing!

My husband and I were on a quick weekend vacation and decided to try zip lining. We had a great time. We wished the course was longer for the price but it was still a lot of fun. We would definitely recommend it to first time zip liners.

We came in on a dreary, cloudy day with occasional drizzling rain... And we were greeted with huge smiles from the welcoming staff! Our experience immediately began with laughter and only got better from there :) Everyone was very accommodating and polite, the course was challenging yet we felt very comfortable and safe. I would recommend waiting until your children... More

Monkey Trunks never disappoints. With easy access from most of the campgrounds in and around Saco and Orchard Beach, Monkey Trunks is a no-brainer for a day activity. We tried both the Zip-trekking and the Adventure course. If reserved ahead of time all together you can save a few bucks and have the opportunity to try everything that they have... More

My daughter has been wanting to experience this activity for two summers. Last year she was not tall enough to complete the obstacles herself so we decided to wait until this year. I'm glad we waited, but it is not necessary as long as your child is accompanied by an adult to help them clip onto the cables. The staff... More

Been to a few of these places - upper levels took some upper body strength. Location is just off the main road- easy to get to. Online purchase was easy and staff was friendly and easy to work with.

We did the new zip line obstacle course and had two guides, Nick and Tom. If you are afraid of heights and decide to this, get ready to use some serious adrenaline! It is so fun and it only took up two hours of our day! Nick and Tom were both very knowledgeable, encouraging and full of cool useful techniques.... More

Super fun! The staff was informative and thorough about all the technical/safety stuff, since we were about 40 feet in the air. They were super encouraging and their motivation made us enjoy each treetop challenge and the whole zip-lining experience. I highly encourage anyone who is thinking about trying this activity to start with these guys!
