We went on the conoe ride and truly enjoyed ourselves but the water was very shallow and slow moving so we had to use a lot of effort to get down the river. The water was so shallow in some areas, we actually ended up getting stuck. It was fun though and we enjoyed making memories.

We rented a rustic cabin and it was very nice. The camground is simple but the showers were clean and the water was super HOT!! Hot water is nice after a long day of hiking in all the local parks. The staff was super nice and helpful. My kids had fun playing the old games in the office area and... More

My girlfriend and I went to the Hocking River for a fun Friday activity. We've never Kayaked there before and thought it would be a new adventure together. We made the reservation online which was extremely easy. I will say though it really wasn't clear when making a reservation if the time slot you selected is what time you're supposed... More

Awful experience for our group of 15 campers. From start to end this was a stressful experience. The company was over an hour late picking us up. The equipment was dated and dirty. The staff was rude and made excuses when we asked them why they were unable to pick up our group on time. There was one girl at... More

I am traveling in Ohio with a group of 15 kids, most of them from Israel. We had the worst day of our trip because of our experience. Our bus was 1 hour late, and was old and really not safe. The doors or the bus were broken and open! Once we got there we were told that the second... More

My son, 11years old, and I started our day off with the Super Zip. It was our first experience with zip lining. We were nervous, but it was awesome! I only wish he would have gotten a head start over me, as he weighs less and therefor zipped slower than me.

There were 3 people in our party on a Saturday morning to go kayaking. It was our 1st time there & it was absolutely packed. Although very competitively priced compared to other local liveries, I see now that quality & service are seriously compromised. We waited 2.5 hours for a bus, although the website & automated phone message advertise buses... More

Thank you for talking the time to review our business. I hope I can shed some light on your experience. In order to run smoothly our business is based on logistics. For us to accommodate the large amount of people that might come on a nice Saturday we do a lot of prep work throughout the week. For example we... More

Worst trip of my life! Had to wait 2 hours for a bus ride to river. Bus broke down halfway there and we had to walk 2 miles to the river. When we got to the river dozens of people were waiting for an hour for kayaks that they had rented. We never got our kayaks, and had to load... More

We took the 1.5 mile trek and had a great time! The river was filled with beautiful views and was simple to navigate! There were even spots to stop along the way.

Everything was terrible. The mini golf was outdated and a death trap. Good luck not getting tetanus. My fiancé fell off of one of the holes because the place was so dilapidated. The desk person seemed disinterested and bothered when we told her and seemed like she was blaming is. No offer of ice or help at all. The go... More
