We had so much fun with Dent and JJ as our guides for the zipline. I would do this again in a heartbeat and felt very safe in the harness. I like that we had a small practice session before going to the main attraction.

The sheer size of the cavern is breathtaking and the Christmas light display was amazing. It's so nice to be able to stay inside your car and enjoy the hundreds of light displays... More
