“Best Course Around - Hands Down!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

I have ziplined in Hocking Hills, Ohio, The Wilds, and even in Hilton Head, SC, but no course compares to Zip Zone at Camp Mary Orton in Columbus. This was my second time on the course, and it was just as great as my first time (09-29-2012). This time my husband joined me and it was his first time ziplining. He was a little nervous, but the guides are extremely cool (we had Hively & Andrew - "zip on!") and very encouraging. It is an absolutely lovely setting with a forest of old-growth trees. But the very best thing about ZipZone is their unique braking system. The zipper doesn't have to worry about braking at all! They have developed an innovative braking system which requires no expertise or even participation on the part of the zipper - all you have to do is fly through the trees and leave the rest up to the guides!

We will go back again and again - we are looking forward to zipping on a moonlight zip session very soon. I cannot recommend ZipZone highly enough.

“Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The online booking was easy and the on-site staff is great and friendly. Well worth the cost. It was my first time zip lining and this was a great first place to go because of the braking system they have on the cables. Always felt safe on the line and on the platforms. The rope bridges...well it took me a little to get comfortable with them.

The check in process was easy. The harnessing instructions were simple and also very easy. A short walk to the first zip line. The guides were awesome!

A great experience.
