The staff at this attraction is excellent. They paid careful attention to making sure that everyone was safe and having fun. They were friendly and gave a lot of nature information. I was a little disappointed with the views on some of the zips. There was one that was stunning, going over a falls. A couple of zips went over... More

Pros: Well-organized, nice and fun staff, well-maintained, can hang upside down, tandem lines. Cons: They ask customers to tip the guides at the end. The guides were very nice and helpful so we paid, but the experience already costs so much that it feels like they are just pushing for more money. Umauma Experience should pay their guides more and... More

My family and I had a blast when we went ziplining with this crew at Umauma Experience! The employees were really fun and helpful. I loved the fact that you could hang upside down when ziping on pretty much every line. I also loved that the first four lines were tandem (you could zip side by side!). My whole crew... More

Had a great time on this Zip Line tour/experience. The views were spectacular, the staff was friendly and took their time to make sure you were having a good time. This zip line was a little different than others I have been on since you did not have to break yourself, so it allowed all sorts of fun like going... More

So much fun! Very family friendly! The 9 zipline rides are very easy and quite beautiful. The guides / instructors are all incredibly friendly and helpful and are clearly having a good time (because they get to go ziplining every day!). There were I think 14 people total we went ziplining with, and the staff were easily able to help... More

Super friendly staff and gorgeous views. They do everything for you, including braking. If you're active and into stuff like climbing, after the first few lines you're gonna be wanting to at least manage the braking yourself, and that's not an option. If on the other hand you have kids with you or someone who is afraid of heights or... More
