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...

Thanks for reviewing us. I'm glad you and your granddaughter had a great adventure together. I'll pass along your comments about how important it was for your granddaughter to feel included in the group as the only child on the trip. Hope to see you again soon. More

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.

My kids and I went zip lining this past Sunday, what a BLAST! My daughter was given the zip lining as a birthday present and her brother and I were included in the gift! I am older (ha-ha) and afraid of heights BUT Zoar was fantastic! Safety is HUGE and you are always secured so there is absolutely NO CHANCE... More

My husband and I just returned from a canopy tour with Zoar in Charelmont, MA. Our guides were fantastic....fun, but at the same time, always had our safety in mind. We had a perfect day and can't wait to bring our kids!

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

Thank you for the review. I'm glad you appreciated Kelsey and Meghan's corny jokes and that you were able to experience the canopy tour in the fall when the trees are bare and you can easily see through the woods. We hope to see you again! 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
