Admittedly, this is the only zip line tour we have taken. I gave it a 5-star ranking, maybe because I have nothing to compare against, and enjoyed everything about this excursion. One in our party was a bit hesitant, but once underway, absolutely loved it. After signing up and getting outfitted at the picturesque open air building, we climbed into the back of a pickup truck with benches. It took us on a wild ride to the top of the hill. From there we chose the more extreme of the two ways down. As we zipped on one line after another (8 total) we enjoyed breathtaking scenery of the ocean and the tropical canopy. At each station, some of which are simply platforms high in a tree, there are friendly and strong men to help you launch and land. The double cable adds to the feeling of safety. You don't wear a special glove to brake yourself as on some zip lines. Here each high-speed run comes to a gradual stop all by itself. For us, that was a plus. The zip line is exciting, but not frightening. The young people were having a blast. I am 67 and had just as much fun as they did-- perhaps more, because maybe you come to appreciate beautiful scenery a little bit more as you age. Although many people must go through this attraction each day, we felt a sense of privacy in this vast landscape as we sailed down the cables and walked the tropical paths of our adventure. The whole thing is about the ride. Don't expect guides or nature walks to tell you about flora or fauna. I am glad we did it. Take your camera! We especially enjoy watching videos of our rides. The whole experience takes about an hour, so be sure to plan other things to see and do on the very interesting isle of Roatan. (We did not sign up in advance for this. We had reserved a car and driver for the day through Rony's tours and got to the Pirates site before any tour buses might have and just paid the admission as we entered.)
