My son and I went zip lining here in August. It was a fun time, affordable and our tour guides were great! It was my son's first time ziplining and they made him feel comfortable! The only downside is they do "self rescue" ... You have to stop yourself when you are near the end of the line and pull... More

We did white water rafting on Shenandoah on 8/24/2014 and zip line on 8/25/2014. White water rafting was incredible, very relaxing. Zip line was very exciting and fun. All the instructors were very knowledgeable,friendly.and helpful. Front office personnel were very friendly and helpful. I would do these activities with them.

For experiences not to be forgotten make sure you book the off road segways ( we booked these via Amazon and saved over 50%) and white water rafting (via Groupon saving nearly 50%).

I had never been zip lining but the two guides showed us everything and took us through a practice run before getting on the real course. It was awesome and I felt safe the whole time. Really fun!

I went here last year with a very large group of friends, I planned ahead and did the coordinating. I passed on the information for everyone, which I procured online.
