Our family had a great time with Liz & Janelle as our zip guides. Not nearly as scary or physically taxing as we thought it would be. This was our first time zip lining & we would highly recommend this experience to anyone.

My wife surprised me with the idea of going on an ATV. I've always wanted to but as a naturally anxious guy I was just nervous about it, just as I am about anything I do for the first time. So she set us up reservations and I waited for the day. The day came and so did the forecast... More

When we were wrapping up, I said something about how "Now I'll have to get directions with my new GPS". Even though someone else was calling in,... More

Sydney and Katie were the best zip guides ever! I brought four grandchildren and they made us all feel right at home and safe. They were so friendly and outgoing! They deserve a raise!

I hadn't heard of eXplore Brown County before & came across it while looking on Trip Advisor for things to do. We weren't really sure what to expect. I'm happy to say that it exceeded... More

My best friend and I had a last minute zip lining adventure at Explore Brown County. We had a wonderful time. Our guides were great. The experience was more enjoyable, because we were the only ones on the trip, so we didn't have any down time between zips. I can't wait to go back and do the night zip.
