55 degrees and heavy rain constrained our expectations. However, the trip was awesome, engaging, and we even kept warm. The high water levels presented new obstacles that kept our interests piqued and the fun plentiful. It is a bit pricey, but it is a great outing for friends that are the adventurous type. These guys have it all available: wet... More

Zip lining was great. Our guides Aiden and Curtis made you feel safe and comfortable; not to mention funny even though they have told the joke a thousand times. I am scared of highest, falling, and think I am way too of a chicken to do this. I loved it. We always try to do an adrenaline rush activity on... More

Went zipping this past Saturday - had a great time ! The guides were fantastic. It was a lot easier than I thought. No ladders to climb - nothing scary at all - just fun. I felt very safe the whole time too. A great family event. My teenagers loved it.

This was a great experience for my 20 year old daughter and myself. It was her first experience whitewater rafting and both our first times zip lining. Be sure to request Steve B. as the guide for rafting. He was great! Nice and informative and a great rafter. The lunch was great. More than I would have expected. The homemade... More

I worked with Zoar to plan a weekend adventure for 25. These were Boy scouts ages 11- 17 and a few adults. Everyone had an awesome time. We split into two different rafting trips. Boys under 14 did the Gap while the 14 and older ran the Dryway. Both trips were great. The guides were fun and very knowledgeable. We... More

My friend and I are in our 50s it was his Birthday so we decided to go zip lining as we both always wanted to try it. We had an awesome time Lauren and Carin were our tour guides who were awesome. Overall experience was great, it was worth every cent.

My granddaughter (age 11) and I (over 60) loved our first ever zipline experience. From the initial telephone call, talking to a real person, to the informative confirmation email, to the clear, complete instructions and safety equipment, to the course itself with its varying lengths and heights, to the two friendly, calm and fun guides, it was another thrilling way...

This was our first ziplining experience. It was so much fun and had beautiful scenery. We want down man ziplines and also did some repelling and a bridge walk. We had a blast. We have since done ziplining in a jungle in the Dominican Republic and it didn't even come close to Zoar's ziplining, surprisingly! Definitely recommend.

Thank you for your review. We aren't exactly in a jungle location, but we're glad to hear that our New England experience rivals that of the tropics! More
