Three people (of ages 13, 14, and 70) found the tour quite enjoyable. The 70-year-old was quite nervous the whole time, but no=one was killed (which is a good thing).

Our first zip line. We had two very experienced and enthusiastic guides. Scenery was spectacular when weren't focused on hanging on for dear life. Also very interesting talk about how they are trying to protect the bird population from the rats, stouts and possums.
