This was a really exciting way to spend a couple of hours. We had a lot of fun ziplining across the park and climbing the bridges. We have been ziplining before so we knew that we would enjoy this activity. The staff was fun to talk with and they were very serious about safety. The equipment was well maintained. We... More

Great, extremely fun experience! Our first time zip-lining and this was a perfect fit. Staff was very knowledgable and emphasized safety while making it super fun! Can't wait to take out-of-town guests on this fun adventure! Watch for Groupons or check the Beanstalk website for specials!

Highly recommend this great zip line adventure that comes at a great value using Groupon. Guides Cassy and Noah were friendly, professional, helpful and FUN. We came with our 8 & 11 year old and all loved the 1.5hr zip lining. For additional charges, don't miss the climbing tower and the free fall. Adrenaline rushes to the max and great... More

I went with a group of 4 from my work and only one coworker had been ziplining before the rest of us. But The Beanstalk Journey was the first time that we have been to. But first of all let me say that Hilary and Patrick our guides was very funny, fun, entertaining, professional and they made us all feel... More

We had purchased passes for our family of four and one of our children backed out so only two passes were used on our first visit. My husband and I rescheduled to go so both of us could zip-line. His first zip-line experience was amazing! The guides (Zac is the main one we both remember) and were excellent and it... More

My 12 yr. old was afraid of heights but she asked to try this. I was thrilled that she was squealing with glee (instead of fear) by the end of the trip. That was mainly due to the two wonderful guides, Zac and Miriam. A great place to experience a zipline.

It was well worth the money when I bought my Groupon. it was fun for starters and for people that I've never ziplined before. My son and I had a great time together .if im in the area we may look it up again and go back.

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
