I loved the experience. The zips complement the entire area and really give you a feeling of Brown County. The people are friendly and the staff are fantastic!!! I strongly recommend this place to everyone.

“WOW the longest, tallest, fastest zip line in Indiana and Never too old...”
Reviewed December 14, 2011

I am 61 years old and I was hesitant to go zipping 70 feet above the lake into tree tops... but it was soooo beautiful. I loved it! I never felt unsafe. The guides had us tethered at all times. The vistas were awesome, like I had never seen before. The forests of Brown County are really gorgeous. This was the most fun I have had in years, it made me feel 40 years younger...proves you are never too old.
Bring your camera so people see how fantastic it is!

“Awesome Trip!”
Reviewed December 3, 2011

So me and a few of my college buddies decided to get together for a Saturday and one of us saw that we could zip line in Indiana. Pretty much, we had a blast. They put some climbing gear on you and take you up into the woods where the zip lines are. We did the two hour tour so we did the longer and faster zips (at least that's what they told us). The first one we did we got to go two at a time and race. After that, we spent the rest of the time in the trees zipping from tree to tree. We even had to cross the rickety bridge along the way (you're hooked in so you can't fall). At the end, we got to rappell down the tree. The only bad thing was that most of the leaves from the trees were gone but we definitely plan to come back in the spring. I highly recommend this place to any outdoorsy type or anyone just looking for a good time.

“Amazing Adventure”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

The zipline course exceeded my expectations! I was pleasantly surprised by the length of the course and the guides were obviously well trained and were lots of fun. My 15 year old son and I had an amazing afternoon together! Thank you!

“One word - Awesome!”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

I visited Explore Brown County with a couple of friends who were visiting from Europe, we had the best time!! What a fun way to spend an afternoon. We had an awesome experience from the wonderful guides to soaring through the trees, it was very exciting. I have been ziplining before in other countries and I felt totally safe at XBC (not always the case in other places), they are very safety conscience! I would definitely recommend spending some time here!!
