We zipped here one time in 2017 and twice this June 2018. My children ranged from 9-15 and Mom joined too! It was serious fun for everyone- children up to grandparents. DONT MISS!

The zip line was fantastic and exhilarating, but Our guides were what made the experience truly special. Irisa and Blake not only were I formative but were supportive and understanding as we tried something new.

Guides Neri and her partner were fabulous. Fun and spirited. Made 2 of us whom never have zipped and another very scared of heights feel safe and secure. Always smiling and very courteous and professional.
