Terrapin hosted 50 of us, all ages (25-60), for our team building day. We had an absolute blast and would highly recommend it to anyone! On the bus ride back, several staff members said that they learned so much about themselves and their abilities. The Terrapin staff was organized, communicative, and made everyone's experience that much better. The courses were... More

I came to Terrapin Adventures for a work team builder session. It was wonderful! James was our coach and had the group engaged in great activities. We were outdoors for the entire team builder and that was great also. We didn't have time to do the ropes course but we did do the big swing and zip line. Overall James... More

If you're thinking about doing this, go for it. It's so much fun, I would recommend getting the Terrapin Adventure package which allows you to do the obstacle course, the swing, the zip line and the rock climbing/ladder climbing wall. Even though you're in a harness, its so scary but fun scary. The obstacle course has three levels that get... More

We have some very brave adventurous members of our family as well as those of us that our knees start knocking at the thoughts of a 'crazy' adventure. Terrapin as it all. Great well trained staff leads for a safe and happy adventure for all.

I just took a nature kayaking tour which was fantastic! We were lucky to have a beautiful August day with low heat and humidity, but that's not what made it great. Missy was a wonderful leader. She provided some instruction on paddling, and getting into the kayaks, but that didn't take long. Most of the time was on the water,... More

I went with an active teen group. Because time was a factor, we were there for 4 hours. The group was about 45 teens. Activities for my group were zip line, 3 person swing, rock wall and high rope challenge. The teens loved it. It was hot and humid with a little rain but the teens completed all of the... More

This was awesome! Very hot and humid outside but mostly the course was shaded. The guides were great with the kids and the course was challenging yet not too hard for them. They were highly supervised and everyone was very safe. I was worried it would be lame because it was the youngest course, but it wasn't! The party rooms... More

We went on the day they switched over to online waivers. The lines were long however the staff was nice. We only signed up for the zipline, but we were there for over 2 hours. We had to watch people on the swing and then we had to wait in line for about another hour for another group to finish... More

We went to Terrapin Adventures today with our 5yo son and 8yo daughter. Fortunately booked 2 weeks in advance since the weather was perfect and everything was sold out the day of. We planned to use a voucher from LivingSocial...there was a glitch with this (due to my not reading all the fine print...my fault) but Steve at the front... More
