What a great first zipline experience. Nowhere throughout the process did I feel endangered or not properly attended to by the staff. The view is fine and the ride was exilerating. I highly recommend this to the first timer.

Was reluctant to do the zip line but it turned out to be fun, not scary, even for senior citizens. You're strapped into a seat and it stops automatically so you don't have to worry about any controls. They'll warn you that it ends with a jolt, and it does, but nothing to concern yourself with. While waiting for your... More

People much older than we are were taking this 60 second zip line ride! You are in an actual seat, not hanging from harnesses and you don't have to do a thing but enjoy looking at the scenery all around you. The system has its own breaks and you do stop abruptly, so hold on to your camera tightly! The... More

Although this it's not the most daring zipline I've done, it was well worth it. The views from atop the tower overlooking the Shepard of the Hills site is very nice. The zip itself can be enjoyed by anyone being a long straight and fast trip from the tower summit...enough to get the blood rushing yet not enough to make... More

It was an interesting trip up to the mountains. Yes, the cashier was very good! At the top, the gal who headed it, was on the "phone" almost all of the whole time! They were boring! We asked about the the tower,etc., but she said, "Don't know!" My wife did the Vigilante Extreme ...it was about 60 seconds. I don't... More

I felt very safe - there is a gate in front of you (couldn't see down below) as you are strapped in a secure swing type harness. The gate opens , the ride is on. I wasn't Abeautiful view to go with a great experience! Of coarse pictures were taken. Was a a little disappointed aid the guy selling them.... More

I was very nervous about zipling, but I'm glad I did it. It's an easy course for beginners to start with. Whats's nice about this one is that it has 4 lines and a family of four people can all go at once.

I was pleasantly surprised by how cheap it was. The ride up the right elevator was the scariest. Once your up there it's a little nerve racking but there is no going back. Once your buckled in and the gates open it is a nice feeling.

Had a coupon for 5.00 off the zip line ride so we had some time before the chuck wagon dinner and show so decided to give it a try. You ride the elevator up to the top of the tower which is 230 something feet. The harness is a seat which they strap you into. It was actually comfortable. The... More
