This was indeed a ton of fun for all the reasons everyone has expressed. But here is my story. The zipline experience takes about three hours. My wife was actually the catalyst for me doing this even though it meant she'd spend the time in the car - mobility issues. There are ten or so ziplines, two narrow wobbly bridges,... More

I have been on several zip lining courses. This one is an excellent operation and course. Miles and Wayne were excellent guides. They were patient and kind and always made sure to follow proper safety procedures. The course provided plenty of thrills without being overwhelming. I might be a little challenging for timid younger children. However, overall, it think it... More

Went up to Mass. for a girls weekend with my friend and our daughters. We had an absolute blast. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. We did the dry way and it was anything but.... We had Kurt and our daughters has Emma. They were both really great. Looked as though all the guides gave their passengers a good time. We... More

We went to Zoar last weekend and we had an awesome experience. This was my first time white water rafting. The staff is super nice Curt was our tour guide, he really made us feel safe and comfortable. The first mile all I was thinking was my raft going to flip. Curt did a very good job explaining who was... More

I bought my wife a white water rafting trip for her birthday. I read the reviews on TripAdvisor and chose Zoar...and I am so happy I did. We were greeted right when we drive up and given clear instructions. They went through the training and off to the buses we went. Brian was our guide and he was awesome. This... More

This was a really fun anniversary adventure. Initially I was terrified but our guides Wayne and Sean made the whole experience so much fun. They were patient with me and explained things repeatedly so that I understood exactly what to expect. They gave a lot of positive feedback which allowed me to relax and just have fun!

Took my family (kids 8-16) on a white water rafting trip. The Zoar Gap trip was a lot of fun. Not much "white water" but it was perfect for the younger kids. Staff and our guide Austin were terrific. Would definitely recommend Zoar for a fun family day.

Wow! My husband and I went ziplining in August 2014. We were excited to try a new adventure -- though I was extremely anxious due to heights. The staff were inspiring, supportive and kept us safe. I cannot thank them enough for an AMAZING challenge and success! We loved it!!

Took an almost 70 yo friend for zip lining and we did not regret it. Went as a group of 6 with 2 excellent guides who were very safety conscious and carefully helped us all learn how to fly and brake, including a child. We chose this tour over the competitor as the canopy tour in the trees was more... More

We went white water rafting (late August 2014) with our 3 boys ages 7,9, 11. This was our first experience white water rafting and it was perfect -- fun and exciting, but not overly challenging. The one Class III rapid (the Gap) came and went fast and was thrilling (we managed to hang onto everyone in our boat with a... More
