“Amazing experience.... Highly recommend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

This was an unforgettable experience. The staff is very friendly and helpful. This company has some of the best and safest equipment around. We were trying to decide between Ecoglide and Skytrek, but went with Ecoglide because it was almost half the price and had a lot more recommendations. The Tarzan swing was also a big plus. I highly recommend this tour, even if you are a little afraid, because you won't regret it after. This is a must-do while in costa rica.

“Lots of fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Our family of 6 loved this activity. The guides were knowledgeable and friendly, and the zip lines were great with many of them having great views. The high point for most of us was definitely the tarzan swing... scary to contemplate, but so much fun (in fact, we even ended up buying the $30 DVD at the end of the trip, as we wanted to have recorded evidence of everyone's reaction to the sudden drop!); although for my husband the high point was that he actually got to ride a zip line through a rainbow. Our daughter had been on another Arenal zip line last year, and thought this one was much more fun (more lines, more variation in the lines, and the tarzan swing). The only negative is that we felt that the group size was too big, resulting in some waiting before the first line and on several platforms along the way. Overall, a good trip and worth the money.

“Great ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Good thrills, great staff, breathtaking Tarzan swing. We had to wait quite a while to get the group together before starting.

“What is the point of zip lining?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

This review is mainly for people who are trying to decide whether to try this activity. This ws our first time zip lining. If one wants to see the sxenary from above, it is probably not worht $50. You get that view, but probably not at teh vantage poiint you want because this is a private lot and it is unlikely to give you the best views. You have time enjoying that view from the paltforms, but if you think about it, as you zip along the line, you are either too scared or too rushed to see flora or fauna at 20-40 MPH while adjusting the speed with one hand and making sure your head is near the line or your legs are properly ticked. As for the thrill, if you want a thrill, yes, it can be thrilling, mainly because of the height and openness. But again, be sure it is worth the $50 which is more than an amusement park ride. Overall, we tried it because it is the in thing in CR, and probably reaonable once--in your life.
