I've been zip lining quite a few times, and this ranks near the very top of my favorites. The guides were amiable and encouraged those in our group who were a bit timid. They were knowledgable, and I felt safe the entire time. I loved that we didn't just zip from platform to platform. There were rope bridges to cross... More

It was awesome. Being a 55 year old woman, I wasn't sure what I was in store for but it was fun and exciting. The... More

The group we were with was 12 with the guides and I think everyone was a newby but me. The guys... More

Noah and Hilary were GREAT! We had an absolute blast. It was TOTALLY WORTH the Groupon price. Not sure I would do it for 'regular' price. Love that kids as young as 4 years old can go and do it tandem. ALSO you don't have to hand break like I read you have to do at other places. Very safe... More

My husband and I decided to try our local attraction. The net tube was difficult for my small feet to walk up. The guides and zipline were great! A fun few hours!

Wow! What an amazing day at The Beanstalk. Celebrated my mom's 70th birthday! There were 10 family members in my group, mom who turned 70, dad who is 72 with Parkinson's, my 85 yr old Aunt, my 45 yr old husband who is on oxygen and carried his oxygen across his body, me and our 4 children ages 8-16.
