Course starts off very easy for beginners and the extreme course is very challenging for more advanced skills. Had a super fun time and left with a great, fun workout 10/10

I have a 10 year old daughter who was wanting to conquer her fear of hights and do a zipline. Because of her fear of heights i was concerned about her backing out so we chose the junior course. She absolutely loved it. We went through twice. We will definitely be back but the adult course next time! Highly recommended!

We recommend the course. We had excellent instructions and two knowledgeable guides. We were disappointed that the instructions took an hour of our 2 1/2 hours. Our group was behind a family with small children and slowed us down on the easy part. The more adventurous people in my group weren’t able to do the more advanced course Due to time limitations. You can’t fall to the ground! There are options to choose from. During instructions, ask questions if needed. Bob and Tilly were awesome.

Was on vaction in Tennessee and this caught our eye. We book it for a Tuesday and enjoyed it so much went back on Friday. Loved it so much! It isn't for everyone. You can quit the course at anytime. There is no chance in falling you are lock in to a cable at all times.

We visited FCFs to participate in the Canopy Challenge May 2021. It is a fantastic course. There is a height restriction so I went with a grandchild on the junior course. The rest of the family completed the regular course which was fantastic. The adults and teens loved it! What was disappointing was the very poor instructions. We were helped by teens guides whose instructions in donning the gear and navigating the equipment were very poor. They spoke very quickly and rotely. They had given this spiel a thousand times and they rattled everything off with no real intent or expectation that the folks would understand. It was frustrating and rattling. Once we were geared up, we received further instructions on safety and the locking, unlocking and relocking of the safety garb. Again it seemed that the instructions were given as fast as the kid could talk. "Does anyone have any questions"? We were all in a daze. When we started the course, I had to ask for help several times, I was so flustered with the equipment that I couldn't enjoy the obstacle course. When you are assisting a small child on the junior course, you must lock, unlock and relock the kid then lock, unlock and relock yourself. I felt that was all I got accomplished and it wasn't pleasurable. The adults on the main course felt the same. They spent most of their energy working the safely locking mechanism. Better instructors and better instruction could have made the course much more fun. A video and demonstration and not just reading the instructions could have helped. A TV showing how to lock and unlock the safety harness could have been shown while we were waiting to don gear. The course was fantastic and highly, highly recommended (though the junior course was not challenging for our 8 year old). We could have had a fantastic time if we had gotten better instructions from staff who really were concerned about our understanding of the process. I was half way through the course before I got the hang of how to use the safety gear. It didn't have to be this way. It wasn't enjoyable at all when all I was concerned about was that I was holding up the folks behind me. Others felt the same. Better instruction by better staff could have made this a most enjoyable experience. Junior course was not challenging for our 8 year old kid who was too short for the regular course. He was disappointed. The adult course was fantastic. Get staff to work who can give better guidance so you can enjoy the course and not concentrate on the equipment which sorely diminished the enjoyment of the experience.

First off, thank you for taking the time to leave a detailed review; while a good review makes us feel great, the not-so-good reviews help us see where we can improve, and that is invaluable. I apologize that you feel we missed the mark this time. We pride ourselves on our staffing and try to ensure that everyone has a great time. As a self-guided experience, guests make all their own connections and traverse through the course at their own pace, and in the event they need help, they can call for a guide who can help them with either advice or physically helping them through. The locking mechanism is only one of many reasons why we require an adult to be present on the course with a child. I understand that learning the mechanism while helping the younger ones isn't always easy. Still, it is required to provide a safety margin while traversing the course and giving the children the best experience possible. I appreciate the suggestions. I am currently working on a video demonstration of the key system and how it works. Thank you again for your review, and we hope to see you again sometime in the future!
