This activity requires a reservation and payment in advance. Our party included three adults and one teen. We made our reservation by phone on the morning of the day we wanted to visit. I'm not sure if they typically have same day openings or if we were just lucky. The folks we talked to by phone were very knowledgable, helpful,... More

We have been on about 10 different ropes courses, and this was one of the best ever. My hubby, 13 year old daughter, and I went, and we all had a great time. The easy parts were hard enough to enjoy, and the hardest was a challenge, it took about 15-20 minutes to cross between the 3 of us. Would... More

My 9 year old son and I did the full tree top adventure course (all 3 levels of difficulty) in the allotted time, thanks to the fantastic staff. They educated us in the training and were there for us if we needed them the entire time. Derek and Riley were so great to have on course with us. The tree... More

We went ziplining on an ArborTrek tour. Our guides were excellent and small group kept it interesting for all involved! The 8 ziplines were of varied lengths and many were long enough you couldn't see the end as you jumped off. The 2 repels were really fun too, taught us to trust their equipment (which was very trustworthy). The people... More

Some might have tried other zip lines... this one is for families, fearful adults and really just anyone... with the same thrill, but also a great adventure. Courtney and Greta were our guides--AWESOME! They make you so comfortable with the experience, share some great stories and make sure you have a good time. With 8 zips, you go from 150... More

Amazing experience here. Guides Jeremy and Scout were fun, empowering and professional. Highlight of the trip for my daughter and I. Could not say enough good things about the canopy/zip-line tour we took.

My husband and I went on the Noon Arbortrek canopy tour today with Derek and Lauren as our guides. It was a great afternoon! Derek and Lauren were very personable (taking the time to learn all of our group's 9 names), knowledgable about the area, professional and highly experienced. They made the day a lot of fun but at the... More

Damon, Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. Many of our guests do have a fear of heights. We echo your suggestion to live like a kid. Climbing trees and playing in the woods is one of my most cherished memories. I am always happy to hear others feel like a kid again on our tour. More
