My friend and I went zip lining with Vertical Illusions this past weekend and it was the highlight of our visit to the Dells! We had an absolutely blast! I am actually terrified of heights and after the first line, felt so safe and comfortable. We could've zip lined all day! I have the confidence too to zip line other... More

Took our boys (17 and 19) rock climbing and kayaking with Vertical Illusions. Can't say enough good things about our guides, Jacob and Levi - you can tell they really enjoy what they are doing. Rock climbing is legit, beautiful setting and an unbelievable workout - not for the faint of heart or out of shape, but well worth the... More

Extremely friendly and knowledgable people! Myself and my 10 y/o daughter went with Justin as our guide. We felt so safe and he was very informative from the rocks all the way down to the plants! We will be coming back for rock climbing and winter zip lining!! Never tipped in the kayak which was my concern! Had a blast.... More

My wife went on a kayak tour of part of the Dells. They wound up giving her a one on one (just her and a guide) rather than pairing her with a large family with younger kids that would surely have slowed her down and detracted from the quiet of the secluded sections of the water. The guide was knowledgeable... More

Where do I begin! Although we were an 1hr late, the staff of Vertical Illusions still greeted us with open arms and pleasant personalities. They were AMAZINGLY friendly and encouraging as our tour guides. EVERYONE we met was awesome (honestly), but our guides JACOB & BRIAN were hands down the best, as well as our girls Hannah and the young... More

Vertical Illusions is amazing! If you're in the Dells, this zip line tour is an absolute must. The view is incredible and the course is the best of the best. Our tour guide, Jacob, did a phenomenal job. He gave us a ton of interesting facts and history on the location and kept us entertained the entire time. We did... More

5 person zip line adventure was best I've ever done. I too was a little concerned about the price but felt it was absolutely more than worth it. From personable guides Levi & Anne to great views and multiple exciting zip lines we had a blast. And getting great pictures of us during our adventure was great too! Congratulations to... More

We did the zip line tour and loved it! The views were beautiful, and the zip lines were so much fun. The zip lines start out easy then move to intermediate then advanced, so the kids can get used to the feeling of zip lining before doing some of the longer, faster lines. Our guides were Jacob and Sarah and... More

We wanted to do something awesome to celebrate all 7 of our family members being home on the same day in summer and before my two oldest went off to college, so we booked the night before. Was a little hesitant only because 7 people was an investment for us, but it was worth every penny! Justin and Sarah were... More

I wish I could give them more than 5 stars! I booked both peaks for 2 families coming through. Of the 6 of us, my daughter and I had zipped before. Justin and Micah are the greatest! So full of energy and ready to make this an adventure of a lifetime. The peaks were a little hard for me to... More
