“Great ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Good thrills, great staff, breathtaking Tarzan swing. We had to wait quite a while to get the group together before starting.

“What is the point of zip lining?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This review is mainly for people who are trying to decide whether to try this activity. This ws our first time zip lining. If one wants to see the sxenary from above, it is probably not worht $50. You get that view, but probably not at teh vantage poiint you want because this is a private lot and it is unlikely to give you the best views. You have time enjoying that view from the paltforms, but if you think about it, as you zip along the line, you are either too scared or too rushed to see flora or fauna at 20-40 MPH while adjusting the speed with one hand and making sure your head is near the line or your legs are properly ticked. As for the thrill, if you want a thrill, yes, it can be thrilling, mainly because of the height and openness. But again, be sure it is worth the $50 which is more than an amusement park ride. Overall, we tried it because it is the in thing in CR, and probably reaonable once--in your life.

“Super fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I'm afraid of heights, but this establishment is SAFE and fun. The optional Tarzan swing is also a nice way to satiate the appetite of your more adventurous travel mates.

“Ecoglide was thrilling but safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Ecoglide was thrilling but you felt very safe since they use a double cable/pulley system and THEY switch you from line to line, not you!
