“Great, unique experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2014

Definitely a memorable, unique experience for somebody looking to do something original while in Oslo. Museum and ski simulator are very average, probably not worth the trip just to see those things, but the zipline experience down the ski jump is really cool.

Get there early before the big tour groups arrive -- we were lucky to get there ahead of the 11:00 opening (hours change later in the year so check before you go), and were there just in time so we could be the first off the tower. Staff was helpful and friendly and helped make our young daughter feel comfortable (she ziplined as well).

Again, a great experience - a bit pricey but very unique and worth doing at least once.

“Great walking paths in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

It is not the jumping bridge itself that is so great about the place, but the surrounding area for walks and jogging. Perfectly made for couple of hours trips with little stops in the cafes/restaurants.

“Crazy cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

While I did not go on the zip-line, I stood and watched others take the amazingly breathtaking plunge. Those with cameras , screaming more than 3/4 way down. This is the perfect opportunity to experience flying down a ski slope without actually skiing.

“Amazing View & Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

When researching my recent visit to Oslo, I saw this was a new attraction at the Ski Jump and just had to do it. It was my first zip line experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Only slight downside, was that I had to queue for more than an hour, even though their was only about 10-12 people in front of me. Would do it again.
