I had a great time zip lining at Big Bear ziplines. The staff was very helpful and made me feel comfortable and safe the entire time.

I never wanted to zipline and was pretty scared to do so. I would do it again after Big Bear. The experience was very professional, extremely safe, and maybe even exhilerating. Even if you never wanted to, you can do it and this is the place to trust. Thanks for making this so approachable even for the reluctant.

I called and spoke with Lynn who was very helpful and friendly and booked us for 12 people on June 21st. We stopped at a diner close by (Ever Ready) right before because we knew we would be... More

Great experience. Good way to see how your new friend supports you in scarey times. Mine was promising for future adventures. Take pictures of the last approach. It is very picturesque.

Went with my husband and adult daughter. It was an exhilarating experience and one that you won't forget. Our guides were knowledgeable and fun. Felt safe every step of the way. Loved it! Try to get pictures of your group before or after when you are all geared up.

My 20 year old daughter and I had a great time. The staff were friendly and easy to deal with. Our pilots Paul and Una were professional, funny, and put everyone at ease making us feel comfortable and safe. The zipping was awesome and it was fun being with different groups of people.
