“Very Fun Experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

Just took the zipline tour January 3, 2014. Had alot of fun! Our guides, Alex and Will, were awesome! Very relaxed and informative! The whole experience seemed incredibly safe. We've been ziplining before and under the caverns was certainly different. You would want to really be alert though when you first arrive and pay special attention to the signs, here and there, because the entrance is a little confusing. Once you're inside the information center everything is very organized and the staff are very friendly but up to that point it's a little jumbled. It would of been nice to have an area to look and read more about the cavern just as it is. The commercial side and the adventure side. The guides were very informative but it would of been nice to look and see some visuals on your own.

“Totally worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

There is a lot of interesting stuff inside the caves here and the zipline guides are friendly and knowledgeable. This is fun for all sorts of people/ages and I'd definitely recommend visiting if you're there.

“High Price, but lots of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

I took my boyfriend as a Christmas gift and he loved it. We are in our 20s but there were people of all ages there who were doing the ropes course and having fun. It was very safe and even though I was worried at first, the guides explanation made me feel better and there was always a guide or two watching out over everyone. It was lots of fun and I was up there for over 2 hours having a blast. The price was a bit steep, but it might be worth it for a splurge or do like I did and wait till they have a special on Groupon.

P.S. its pretty warm in the cave, so don't worry about dressing for the weather. I wore two pairs of pants and was way too sweaty.

“Great time!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

My wife and I thought would be a fun time and we were right. The price would be a little steep for the experience if you paid full price, but we found a groupon-like discount at dining discoveries. I have to say the guides made the trip, but the zip lines were just as much fun. There were 5 zip lines and two suspension bridges. The zip lines were very cool and set in an even more unique scenery. It's well worth the visit!!
