The obsticle courses were a great challenge! Different levels make it fun for all ages. The zipline had great views and exciting rides through the trees! And easier than the obsticle course! The Staff was helpful and personable! Always ready to answer questions and lend a hand. Props to all the Guides!

I admit my husband had to talk me into this one, heights are not my thing but, I'm so glad that he did! I was extremely nervous when we got there but right away the cheery front desk staff made me feel at ease. Also their guides (we had Dan and Keegan) are incredible! They make sure you are safely...

Not only did they ensure that we were safe, but they made the tour a hell of a lot of fun. They were extremely knowledgable on the area and gave us some great recommendations... More

Great place, fun times, including safety and zip line training procedures. Amy, Jake & Tiffany were all fantastic and made it easy from registration through the early training, zip line locations, rappelling, bridge crossings and shuttle rides to and from the activity sites.

My son and I recently went on the zip line adventure with our guides Tom and Scott. It was a great experience and something I never thought I would do. I have a fear of heights, but was able to complete the course and feel a great sense of accomplishment for doing so. There are 8 ziplines throughout the course,... More

Kalin and Tom did a great job taking our family through the canopy tour… some amazing zip lines! Safety was first, but they were also fun to just hang out with as we took our turns cruising through the treetops… some more a bit faster than "cruising" so the adrenaline junky in your family will also have fun! I highly... More

They were so patient and so understanding of every single person in our group. They even took time to memorize our names which made it so personal. They were... More
