We passed through the place on our way to cascade mountain . We rented skis in a very good condition and well suited for our level . All done with patience and a smile from the guy at the counter . Will return again.

The highlight of our Dells weekend!! If you're lucky enough to be guided by Easton and Justin - you're in for a treat. What energetic, passionate, fun guys! We had a fantastic adventure with them zip lining through the bluffs of Chimney Rock Park. But this adventure is so much more than just the fun of getting to zip through... More

We went zip-lining, with Justin and Levi as our guides. We drive to a beautiful area where we had a short hike to get to the first zip line. Our guides were wonderful about providing us with the history of the area, as well as other information about the property. Our kids, ages 7 & 9, were very much included... More

My friend and I went zip lining with Vertical Illusions this past weekend and it was the highlight of our visit to the Dells! We had an absolutely blast! I am actually terrified of heights and after the first line, felt so safe and comfortable. We could've zip lined all day! I have the confidence too to zip line other... More

Took our boys (17 and 19) rock climbing and kayaking with Vertical Illusions. Can't say enough good things about our guides, Jacob and Levi - you can tell they really enjoy what they are doing. Rock climbing is legit, beautiful setting and an unbelievable workout - not for the faint of heart or out of shape, but well worth the... More

Extremely friendly and knowledgable people! Myself and my 10 y/o daughter went with Justin as our guide. We felt so safe and he was very informative from the rocks all the way down to the plants! We will be coming back for rock climbing and winter zip lining!! Never tipped in the kayak which was my concern! Had a blast.... More

My wife went on a kayak tour of part of the Dells. They wound up giving her a one on one (just her and a guide) rather than pairing her with a large family with younger kids that would surely have slowed her down and detracted from the quiet of the secluded sections of the water. The guide was knowledgeable... More

Where do I begin! Although we were an 1hr late, the staff of Vertical Illusions still greeted us with open arms and pleasant personalities. They were AMAZINGLY friendly and encouraging as our tour guides. EVERYONE we met was awesome (honestly), but our guides JACOB & BRIAN were hands down the best, as well as our girls Hannah and the young... More

Vertical Illusions is amazing! If you're in the Dells, this zip line tour is an absolute must. The view is incredible and the course is the best of the best.
