Attraction details
Owner description: Three attractions to choose from Mild to Wild including one of the Longest, Highest and Fastest Zipline Tours in North America, the Skyrider Tour. The Skyrider begins with 3,200ft dual ziplines at over 600ft above the canopy! This extreme activity is Not for Everyone! Our Mid-Mountain tour is slightly more mild, zipping from tree to tree within the canopy. This activity is fun for the whole family and a great place to take your first zipline adventure. Our zipline tours last approximately 3 hours and are lead by professionaly trained (and very entertaining) tour guides. Weight and hight restrictions apply, reservations are required.

NY zipline adventure was great. Mid mountain tour good for beginners. The zip guides are safety oriented but keep it fun.

“A must-do!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

We participated in the Skyride tour which we booked online 2 days in advance. We were a bit concerned about the weather as the forecast predicted T-storms exactly during our 3-hr tour but fortunately they were totally wrong; most of the time we had a beautiful, sunny June day.

The tour is amazing. Very well prepared, funny and knowledgeable guides who make everything possible to make this awesome experience on the ziplines even more memorable. 5 (or 6, respectively, one short one is optional, parallel to the Burma bridge, chosen by the individual), each of them has its own special feature (length, speed, height, yo-yo, very close to the limbs, everything in one etc.) The longest line is 3200 feet at 600' high at its highest point above the valley floor, and that's the very first line to zip on! (No shorter warm-up line before! :-)) Fantastic feeling. Literally like a bird with almost no equipment to fly. Then the speed line where one can speed up to 50 mph!
Whichever line we were zipping we never felt in danger, only fun and freedom.
I will definitely go back and do it again!

We didn't want to stop doing it

“Memorable Memorial Weekend FUN!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Let me start by saying that we have ziplined before so we had an idea of what to expect, and we could not have been more wrong! This adventure is designed so that each of the 5 lines is a different experience and each line requires active participation from the zipper so be prepared to 'earn you fun'! From the first running jump start to the last landing platform we had an absolutely FUN time! We went on the Skyrider tour which is the biggest and highest tour offered; go high, or go home!

Our tour guides, Doug, Ben, Joe and Angelo, were amazing in every way. These guys were so helpful, reassuring, fun, and funny! Our group of lucky 13 zippers could not have asked for a better group of guides. At no time did we ever feel unsafe or afraid. The experience of ziplining can be described as exhilarating, exciting, awesome! But we would never use the words frightening or unsafe.

We were very fortunate that the day we went the weather was perfect but the guys told us they run all zip tours year round, in the rain, snow and sun so options are wide open for a time that suits you to go. In fact, we are planning to go back in the fall and experience leaf peeping from above the canopy!

“Family Weekend”

We had a good time on the Canopy tour Zipline but we really wanted High Adventure Tour. This zipline was closed due to the time of year so check ahead of time to make sure it is open.
