Make this your first day event
Great intro to the island. Go on a clear day and see 5+ out islands. The ride up is cool, short zips OK, bar has the best views and wifi and the flying dutchman is a hoot. Sunday's there is a great brunch at emilios, pricey, but the white Sangria makes it all worth it!

OMG, must do. Best thrill I’ve had in my 71 years. Staff was great, and experience was unbelievable. Learn on the rainforest zip lines, then take the big leap. PS keep your eyes open for the monkeys on the gondola ride to the top. Liquid courage available at the bar at the top.

Horrible
Sep 2021 • Friends
Didn't even participate in zipline and the company refused to respond to my email or reimburse me. And the flying dutchman was not even working which they knew prior to allowing me and my friend to book. Why not remove it from the site if you not it's non operational.

Dear Adventure53349841158, We apologize for the inconvenience caused by canceling your reservation before your visit. At the time of your scheduled visit, The Flying Dutchman was under a temporary maintenance and therefore not operational on opening days. We understand this is main attraction and most looked forward to experience when visiting the park. Although The Flying Dutchman was not operational, The Sky explorer, Schooner and Sentry Hill were available on operating days. Please feel free to let us know more about your cancellation by reaching to: marketing.sxm@rainforestadventure.com. The Sales & Marketing team is always looking for ways to improve guests experiences and appreciates your feedback. Again, we apologize for this inconvenience and hope you considering giving the park a second chance the next time you visit St.Maarten.

Aug 2021
This is must do!!! I am terrified of heights and have never zip lined!! But I had an awesome time. I loved it! And will go back next time in St. Maarten and do this again!!! I enjoyed the canopy zip lines as a warm up and thought it was great. Flying Dutchman is such a thrill! Look for the monkeys on the way up!! And great views up on top!

Great experience and thrills
Aug 2021
100% worth the trip of our resort - able to do it all in ~2 hours.

Schooner Ride
We were surprised this was the most terrifying experience for us. While my husband and I survived - it feels like your flying down the slide and there's something about what feels like a water slide without water that is terrifying. That being said - the stop was surprisingly smooth.

Sentry Hill Zipline
Faster than they look like they'll be, but they have automatic breaks so you don't have to do anything. It was windy when we went and I didn't quite make it to the end on the first zipline. I had to be rescued when the wind pushed me back further. lol. It was no big deal though, the guy jumped on the zipline and pulled me in quickly.

Flying Dutchman
I thought this was would be way scarier and intense than it was, but honestly the scariest part was being strapped in (I had to be told to let go of the rails) and before you go. Once you get going it's a smooth ride and no faster than other zip lines I've been on (though maybe the wind slowed us down a bit). Worth it for the beautiful views!

Sky Explorer
A bit slow moving going up, but great views!

Hi heathermarie1986, Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with us. Happy to hear you had an incredible time exploring all activities we offer here at Rockland Estate. We understand the Schooner ride may be a bit intimidating for some as you slide down a combination of straight paths and curves; However, we must admit the kids love it! Hope you had time to view your attraction photos at the gift shop before departing, Come back and visit us soon!

Amazing experience, highly recommended
Jul 2021
We have been on many vacations that offered zip lining, this was the first time I had the courage to take on the adventure. When you arrive you are asked to sign a digital 'waiver' and you are weighed. After you are taken up the mountain in 2 separate chair lifts. One runs parallel to the mountain, the other takes you to the top. At the top you have a majestic view of St Martin and neighboring islands.

The area to actually get prepared for the zip line was a bit chaotic. There were people standing everywhere. We stool for about 10 minutes before we learned we had to add our name to the list. The women facilitating the ride was direct, giving specific instruction and redirected those who were not following her instruction.

This was not an activity I though I would need sunscreen for but you do. There is very little shade and you are standing around in the sun for a while. After waiting over an hour we were called up, you are given a disposable hair cap, helmet and verbal instructions.

The ride was amazing! I never felt the feeling of falling but gliding, at 56 MPH it was a smooth ride. The stomach drop felling never happened, it was an awesome experience, I would definitely do it again. Zip lining is now on my vacation to-do-list.

Hi distewave, Thank you for the 5 star review! We're happy to hear you overcame your fears with us and conquered The Steepest Zipline in The World! The Flying Dutchman is definitely a must do activity when visiting our beautiful 37 square mile island. Indeed, the views at the top of Sentry Hill is like no other! Panoramic Views of the entire island with vistas of neighboring islands, It's the perfect backdrop for family portraits and selfies. We understand the queue for the ziplines was a bit unexpected and could be better organized for an improve experience as you wait for the main attraction. Our operations team is aware of this and we're continuously working on ways to make this experience much better for our guests. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us, We can't wait to welcome you back to the park!
