“great fun for all ages”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

went to visit Antigua with my kids and my parents and we decided to try the zip line for our first time although we were all a little anxious! We have booked in advance online and within two email everything was done. We have got picked up and brought there where the staff was very welcoming. My son is 8 and he loved it!! My mom is afraid of heights and she broke her fear as soon as she started and i could not believe it especially at her age (76). They dont allow cameras for security reason so We have purchased our pictures and video because we needed a memory of this amazing experience!!!!! Definitely worth the money!! I would go back in no time!!!! Thank you all very much for making our day special!!

“A true adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Our group of 9 did the zip-line and challenge course. We were never concerned about our safety. The ages in our group ranged from 8-45, weight from 60-225 lbs, and everyone managed to have a great time. The guides were skilled, helpful, courteous and safety was their number one priority. The distances we zipped varied, as did the pitch of the lines. By the last few stretches, we were flying without holding our hands on the line. Landing was the most difficult, but even the least experienced figured it out without knocking over our instructors after a couple of runs.

If you climbed trees as a child, or even if you were not even coordinated enough to look up at a tree, you could still learn and enjoy zip lining. One of the most fun events of our vacation.

The challenge course is recommended for those who are willing to sweat just a bit. There are various obstacles, most of which involve being above ground and climbing over ropes, cables, steps, etc. Brings our the Tarzan and Jane in those of us who still remember Tarzan and Jane, the younger ones in the group will think they are on an episode of Wipeout. Only without the wipeout part. We enjoyed it and got our workout for the day!

“Antigua Zip Line ??? Is it for older folks? YEP!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I am 70 and my husband is 73 years of age and we zip lined at the Antigua Rainforest last month while on a Princess Cruise. One word .... FABULOUS! If you are in good health and exercise (as both of us do) then next opportunity .... GO FOR IT! Zip lining is fun, fun, fun!
Staff was friendly, equipment excellent, photos (they put photos of guy in front of me on my DVD that cost $35) and I ended up with wrong size shirt. Other than that... PERFECT!

“zip line”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The zip line was awesome. However the pictures and video they want to sell you at the end is a total rip off. I bought the dvd for $25. 17 pictures and a video of one trek of zip line. When we got on the bus to return to ship a passenger said he sold her "2" discs for $30. RIP OFF. Then when I got home there is no video on disc. Don't waste you money for this item!!!

“Ziplining in Antigua”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

The eco tour was great for the kids, nice guides and the challenge course was fun. If you are going to do the tour I would suggest booking in person when you're on the island. Some hotels and cruise lines charge way too much to set it up for you. Call and grab a taxi instead.

If you like lots of stairs then the challenge course is for you as there is a long walk up from the end of the course.
