I took my boyfriend as a Christmas gift and he loved it. We are in our 20s but there were people of all ages there who were doing the ropes course and having fun. It was very safe and even though I was worried at first, the guides explanation made me feel better and there was always a guide or two watching out over everyone. It was lots of fun and I was up there for over 2 hours having a blast. The price was a bit steep, but it might be worth it for a splurge or do like I did and wait till they have a special on Groupon.

P.S. its pretty warm in the cave, so don't worry about dressing for the weather. I wore two pairs of pants and was way too sweaty.

My wife and I thought would be a fun time and we were right. The price would be a little steep for the experience if you paid full price, but we found a groupon-like discount at dining discoveries. I have to say the guides made the trip, but the zip lines were just as much fun. There were 5 zip lines and two suspension bridges. The zip lines were very cool and set in an even more unique scenery. It's well worth the visit!!

Took our family of 4. Had a great time. But let me tell you as a 52 year old parent, this is a lot of exercise. I was sore for 4 days afterwards. My daughters age 18 & 22 were home from college and loved it. You can use the course for as long as you want. They have a table section and a snack bar with cold drinks. Believe me after a hour you will need a cold drink. Well worth the money.

My grand kids ages 9 and 11 loved this course. Many adults were also there. The staff were very helpful and watchful keeping the adventurers safe. The safety equipment was outstanding. The clips are made so that only one can be opened at a time. Gloves and hardhats with lights are also provided. The kids get warm so dress in layers.The cavern stays around 60 degrees.

There are 2 zip lines in the course as well as rope ladders and other moving walkways.
