    As an adventure-seeker you will simply love this new thrill ride that takes you on the Sky Explorer with the landscape unfolding below to the top of St. Maarten’s highest mountain. Then you’ll go flying back down on the world’s steepest zip line. Embark the Sky Explorer for the approximately 25-minute ride to the top of Sentry Hill, St. Maarten’s highest elevation at 1,125 feet. A series of platforms encircle the mountaintop showcasing 360-degree views of the whole island including vistas of neighboring islands Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barts and Anguilla. A brief orientation will prepare you to fly down the mountain at speeds of up to 56 miles per hour on the world’s steepest zip line, The Flying Dutchman.  You’ll be attached to a flight line in a secure harnessed chair, launching you on the 1050-foot drop in elevation over 2800 feet to experience the ride of a lifetime.

Luckily we got there when there were no lines. The people were not that friendly and could care less that we were there. The tube ride? It was just ok, definitely not worth the money. The next few zip lines were ok nothing outstanding. The main zip line was fun. We were done within 1 hour. Would we spend the money again? No

Dear Discover34840004273, We understand our staff may have came across as impolite; However, we can ensure you at no point this were their intentions. We will further investigate to ensure that our team continue to show our guests why they call us 'The Friendly Island' For extreme adrenaline lovers, we understand the Sentry Hill zip line and schooner may not quiet meet your expectations. However, it's definitely a great experience for visitors of all ages! Despite being underwhelmed with the Sentry Hill Zip, we're happy you loved The Flying Dutchman! Thank you for the feedback.

The actual zip lining was fun! The three hour wait at the top for our turn was not! Our reservation was at one. We took the chairlift to the top of the hill only to be shocked that there was a huge wait for the zip line. They were only running two lines at a time today. We put our name on the list and enjoyed the first few hours of waiting. We loved the view and watching people take their turn. Our names were eventually called so we went and stood in a line for the group about to board only to have the workers let several groups go ahead of us (One group they let cut in front of us was a party of 10!). So frustrating! The zip line down the hill was fun but not worth the price or three hours of wasted time on a beautiful island!

Dear oPlaces02033302688, We understand the queue at The Flying Dutchman was a little longer than expected and sincerely apologize for this delay. During the week of your visit, we've been experiencing above average winds at the top of St.Maarten's Highest elevation. It was important for us to take all necessary precautions while operating the zip line, therefore leading to longer cycle times between flights and longer queues for all guests booked on this attraction. Thank you for the feedback, Hope you give the park a second chance.

Beautiful and calming in a convenient part of the island. Not scary at all. Going up the line takes the most time, coming down is relatively simple

This tour was worth it simply for the views! Absolutely beautiful. When booking online, make sure you are booking the correct thing. We only wanted to do the sky explorer and thought we would specify upon arrival. However upon arrival they said we booked the Flying Dutchman and that we would be refunded the difference between the tours. We are still waiting to see that refund…

Wonderful 360 view of the island at the very top... On a good day, clear sky's, you can also see the surrounding islands in the distance.. My only issue is I wished the chair lift was quicker.... It will take a solid 30 minutes to get to the top...

The check in process was absolutely frustrating because there was no direction on what to do or where to go if you bought tickets beforehand. The cashier was not nice at all, did not even say hello.

However, after that process the Skyview was amazing! Super fun with the most gorgeous panoramic views of the island! I absolutely loved it, a littler frightening but worth it, if you’re an adventurer.

The Flying-Dutchman actually went quicker than I thought but is VERRY steep but super exciting and an amazing adrenaline rush!

Emelio’s Restaurant was until dinner but Jack the bartender is awesome, even concocted a drink for me because I didn’t know what I wanted.

Overall great experience if you are looking for something adventurous with captivating views and some good conversation along the way.

Would recommend, just wish the check in process had more signage and hospitality!

Our original reservation was for the Flying Dutchman but two days before our reservation, we received an email advising it was closed and we could do sentry hill zip instead/receive a $40 refund. We decided to do the sentry hill zip instead. It was fun, staff was very nice and well trained. The view was AMAZING, despite the rain clouds passing through every once in a while. We were still disappointed the Flying Dutchman was closed and felt they could've done a better job accommodating those who originally planned to zip on there.
