My husband and I went to Adventure Park Aug 12th. I'd previously done ziplines in Whistler, BC and Costa Rica so was looking forward to it. Our Air Canada rep helped us make reservations and got us a small discount so it cost $40. Regular price is $45. We got to the park at 8:30 am and there were only the 2 of us. We had a young guide named Eric.
Eric outfitted us with helmuts, gloves and harnesses. My hands are quite small and the gloves were huge so could easily slip off my hands. Wear a cap to protect your head as the helmuts and gloves are quite stinky. After that, we did some practice walking on wires and zipping on a small zipline. Eric explained to us how to attach the trolley and clamps to the ziplines.
After the practice, the first part of the course is a network of tight wires and suspended wooden planks. I didn't expect this part as Parque Aventura's website is all in spanish so I couldn't understand it. Anyhow, as it was first thing in the morning, the wood planks and wires were quite wet and slippery. It takes quite a bit of effort to make it through all the 'bridges'. I felt like a tight rope walker. There was one part where there were suspended metal gym rings (looks like the type gymnasts use). You had to put a foot in each, balance and move to the next one. You are attached by your harness to a wire but those metal rings are quite heavy. I was trying to reach one with my right foot and missed. The heavy ring swung back and hit me on the shin. Ouch! The whole thing was quite the work out and my triceps were sore for days afterwards. LOL
After all the hardwork with the bridges, we were really looking forward to the 2nd part of ziplines. The first zipline was the longest and highest. After that, all the other ziplines were short and disappointing. In addition, as we only had 1 guide, we had to attach the pulley and hook ourselves up to the line. On the Costa Rica and Whistler ziplines, we always had multiple guides. One to go first and help you on the other end and one who goes last who helps you hook up to the line to ensure everything is hooked up properly. I was very careful with hooking myself off and on the line but felt this was very unsafe.
All in all, the Adventure Park is good for a bit of diversion and if you're looking for a workout. However, as a zipline experience, it's very disappointing. If it's ziplining that you're after, save your money for an experience elsewhere.
