Imagine ziplining from the highest of peaks, in a dark cave, over cavernous stalagmites and doing that six or seven times in a row for a couple of hours and there you have it! Great fun but not for the faint of heart.

Kyro and Joe were so attentive and entertaining! We had such a great time and learned all about the history of the limestone quarry. Great day zipping underground!

I have been wanting to go for some time and there was no better chance than now. This was my first adventure zip-lining and it was great. The interaction with our chaperones Tory and Cameron was very down to earth and made everyone feel like part of the group at all times. I highly recommend these two, as they worked... More

My friend and I went zip lining and it was pretty amazing despite my terror of leaping into the abyss. Danny and John Mark kept me alive and were supportive at every platform. They were great. I ended up having an amazing time! It was a really unique experience and some of the gags along the way were super cheesy... More

I went ziplining here with a meetup group of women. I had been ziplining before, but not underground (which is what got me to go again, since it's a pricey activity). Our guides Mack & Cole were great, making sure we stayed safe, but having fun. Also very informative about the caverns as well.

We took our 3 boys (ages 7, 8 and 12) zip lining and we all had a blast! The 5 of us were in a group totalling 12 plus 2 guides, Tory and Cameron. From the very beginning our guides were awesome and worked great together. They took charge and were informative, personable, professional and fun. They were especially great... More
