This far exceeded my expectations. My husband and I lucked out and were the only people in the group. Our guide was wonderful. He was full of fun facts and pointed out so many things we would have missed. The view was unbelievable. We left...More
Fantastic bridge walk over the New River Gorge.Excellent views and a superb guide called Brian.A drop of over 850 feet at the highest point.I was terrified especially at the halfway point when I was sitting, dangling my feet over the edge,but rest assured it is...More
What a great way to experience a different vantage point of a bridge! We walked (VERY slowly so we could learn everything about the history of the bridge and take lots of photos) the 3,000 foot, 24-inch wide catwalk underneath the bridge. First, let me...More
Absolutely one of the coolest things I've done! You are harnessed in and will not fall. You go your pace and the views are spectacular! The catwalk does shake b/c of the traffic above you but not too bad. Take gloves if you go in...More
My friend and I did the Bridgewalk two days ago. It was breathtaking! Our guide, Doug, explained all our safety equipment and how it works before we even took the shuttle. Doug told us all about the construction of this magnificent span and attached our...More
Hard to say enough about what a great experience this was. Our guide, Doug, was top notch and understood that the bridge and the view, and not Doug, were the reaxons we were all there. In a group of eight, and Doud did a nice...More

They'll see us walking at such great heights! This is a must do adventure! What a great view! The experience was made even better, when a rainstorm rolled in and soaked us! It is totally safe and not scary. The company staff is super nice...More
I do believe that they say no children younger than 10 but please check the website for verification. I wouldn't be so concerned of the age as I would have a child adjust to Heights. You're over 800 feet up in the middle of... More
I do believe that they say no children younger than 10 but please check the website for verification. I wouldn't be so concerned of the age as I would have a child adjust to Heights. You're over 800 feet up in the middle of the bridge and I imagine that could be frightening to some children who might be sensitive two heights. But a note on safety, you feel and are completely safe the entire time. Even for a child at the age of 10 or 12, parents should feel very confident that they will be safe.
