Had a great first time zip lining and riding the coaster. OMG the coaster is so amazingly scary, loved it! We did the Valley tour zip line and loved the combo of hiking and zipping. Guides were fun and informative. Will be back for sure!

This is the best zip line I've ever been on. It feels like you are flying as you go from one mountain top to another. Take the highest of the three levels they offer. It's a moderate hike to the high starting point but well worth the effort. You will never forget flying so high over the valley far below.

We had a beautiful day! We chose multiple zip rides that included the highest and longest zip line you could do. It starts off with smaller zips which are a bit boring, but works its way up to the longer zip lines which are awesome. The guides were very professional and I felt completely safe.

Go for the full canopy tour. I could have done it 2-3x in a row, easy. Go ahead, take pics, but be sure to save the last zip to enjoy with no technology interfering.

Went for my daughters 16th birthday. Our staff Matt, Melissa, and Eddie were friendly and fun. We did the mountain top tour. Looking forward to coming back for the valley view your. The mountain biking looked adventurous too

Could not have asked for a more friendly staff. They helped with all the questions we had and gave us all the accommodations they could. We had a group of 27 people for this trip (our second time), the guides were friendly and interacted well with all of us. Great time had by all.

My husband and I did the "Mountain Top Tour" and it was great! We had zippers from age 9 to 53 and everyone enjoyed it. The guides were fun and the activity was safe yet invigorating. I would definitely do it again! The mountain coaster was also a lot of fun!

My daughter and I enjoy having outdoor adventures together - hiking, kayaking, skiing - and decided we wanted to go zip lining. Since we live in western Massachusetts, we decided to go to Berkshire East. I have done a few different zip line tours and I have to say this one tops the list! There were a few first timers,...

First trip to Berkshire and it was a great experience. My wife and I did zip lining day 1 with our 16 and 12 year old, everyone smiled ear to ear. Day 2 consisted of white water rafting with our guide Zak, what a day, what fun !! Thanks for a great weekend.
