The staff took the worry out of it. It was effortless. Soaring through the trees like an Eagle. What an unforfettable experience!

“An overdue review of a memorable experience”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

From the staff to the owner, everyone works hard to make your experience one-of-a-kind and unforgettable. I don't want to repeat what others have so perfectly stated - safety is first, so the thrill is massive but you know, you'll survive that 'first step for mankind' off the platform. They also put the protection of the trees first and you experience a tree-hugging, eco-friendly platform unlike so many other destructive ziplining tours. The staff loves their job and they create a day of bonding and joy for each guest. The food was wonderful and served in a tree platform beside the roaring water that was the next leg of our soaring experience. I hope to some day go back - an amazing experience and worth every dollar!!

“Memorable once in a lifetime experience.”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

My husband and I took our two children, ages 10 and 13. We all LOVED it. It is more expensive then other courses, but given that it is the largest zip line in the world, and the train ride and lunch were included, it made it worth it for us. We wanted a memorable experience for our family. I'm a bit afraid of heights, but by the third platform, I was relaxed. Staff is very experienced and put safety first. Train ride there was gorgeous. Staff addresses you by name. Very nice gourmet lunch midway through. Five star service. This is definitely one for your Bucket List!

“Facing my fears!”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

I gave my husband this adventure for his birthday, despite my fear of heights. (I love him a lot!) From the moment we boarded the train I felt well taken care of. The zip-line experience itself was UNBELIEVABLE!! I started out terrified. No really, deep breathing, tears, the whole bit, but before lunch (which was delicious) I was upside-down without hands! The staff is top-notch! Robin, Jimmy, Phil and Neal took impeccable care of us. Fun, personable, playful and knowledgeable!
It's an experience we will cherish forever!

“Best way to experience the Rockies!”
Reviewed October 2, 2013

Amazing fall day in the San Juan mountains! The staff is top-notch, experienced and friendly. The zip line course is epic and the food is gourmet. You forget that you also get to experience an amazing train ride through one of the most beautiful canyons in the world. You can't beat a day with Soaring!
