I wasn't expecting them to take us on a long drive, but I was very glad they did because we got out of the touristy area and into Lake Delton. The tour guides were fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly. I had trouble with braking on the first few zips, but I had zipped before in the past.. just never had to brake myself. I thought braking was great, it made me feel in control and it made it much more fun. It was very authentic and if you are looking for a real zip lining experience definitely go here! After the tour we got a CD of photos the guides took while we were out there and that was a nice keepsake.

“Family adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2012

My son is leaving for the Marines on sunday and my daughter had this awesome idea to have a family day. We decided to go zip lining. Actually they decided (I am afraid of heights) but it was one of the last family days we are going to have for a while. I couldn't be more pleased or have asked for a better experience. The guides helped me get over the nervousness and to try something new. It was great to see my son and daughter out there laughing having a great time. Thanks to all

“Good experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

Went out with Vertical illusions day after July 4th for some zip lining. Originally my wife and i were suppose to start at 5pm but due to one of their vans being broken down - our tour was bumped back an hour to 6pm and we joined a group of 5 + the 2 tour guides equally 9 people total. That day was a scorcher - 100 degrees extreme humidity and with 9 people out on the zip lines resulted in a very long tour with lots of waiting as everyone took their turn zipping. As we got to the 4th to last zip line - I was ready to get off the lines as it was hot, humid, a lot of waiting, and the sun was no longer out. Our tour became a night tour by the time we zipped the last line (around 9:30pm).

The tour guides were fun and informational and at no point during the tour did I feel I was in any type of danger so it is fairly safe. The wife and I were disappointed in the complimentary photo CD. They were using a new point and shoot camera and did not know how to work it, so out of all the photos that were taken of us only 2 were decent.

A note that wasn't mentioned to us: You are shuttled to the zip line area approx. a 30-45min drive away from where you first meet. The total time of our tour was 4 hrs ( 6 to 10pm).

Overall It was a good experience. I probably would have had a better time had the group been smaller.

“Amazing Time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Rarely anymore do you find the kind of service you were always told you should expect from a business. The young men and women at Vertical Illusions bolstered my faith in what customer service was meant to be. Bright, articulate, witty, and professional folks that really seem to enjoy what they do and strive to exceed their customers’ expectations.
We drove there not really expecting to be able to participate because we had not made a reservation (not recommended) but were pleasantly surprised to find that they were going to fit us in. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left with our hearts and hard drive full of memories we were treated to one of the most pleasurable experiences we have ever had. A big thank you to all the staff, we will meet again soon.

“Great fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

We did two tours: rock climbing and kayak tour. The rock climbing was a fun challenge. We all made it to the top of at least 1 of the 4 different rock formations. (ages 10, 13, 40) Our tour guide John was the best! They kayak tour was great too! Go early in the morning...no boats in the water and cooler temps!
