“Zippity Doo Da”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

I just wanted to let you know what a great experience we had zip-lining last tuesday. Danielle and Zack were our guides, and we could not have been more pleased with them. They were fun, informative, and compassionate (which was great as we did have a 'scardy-cat' in our group). and as for the more adventurous ones in the group, they were great too, letting us know how to make the lines go faster, and how to slow it down more quickly.

we look forward to coming back to rock climb and kayak with your company.

kuddos to you and your staff, and thanks for a great time!

My wife and I dip zip lining and kayaking with Vertical Illusions. All the guides there were fun, friendly and full of energy. Even the guides that weren't doing our group tours talked with us and got to know us a little. Our guides, Jacob and Danielle seemed very knowledgeable but kept it fun as well. The fact that they take pictures made everything even more enjoyable. I will recommend them to everyone I ever talk to that is planning on going to the Dells.

“Total blast, and not cheesy/commercial”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

I was looking for something new and fun and active to do that wouldn't be too loud and crowded, or cheeseball. The hike up was lovely (saw some wildlife and lovely rock formations),a little steep at several points, which added to the fun experience for us, but could be a bit challenging for the less-than fit. Then we zoomed down fifteen different lines of varying lengths and steepness, with several stops to take in the lovely overlook views of the river and surrounding countryside. Our guides were Jake and Janelle, and we felt very well looked after, without being babysat. They were entertaining and informative, and also did a great job of photo-documenting our fun. This is much more of a hands-on adventure than some other zipline operations, so it felt like a fuller experience to me. We had a 1pm reservation along with two other people, and were back at the shop by about 4:15. The pace of the trip could go faster or slower, depending on how many people are in the group, and how confident each person is. Overall, I loved this experience for being something fun and adventurous and a little "nature-y" to do that's a little away from the madding crowd that is the Dells.

Our family kayaked and zip lined with the Vertical Illusion guides. The guides were fabulous, both well informed and exuberant about their work! Would definitely enjoy another trip with them!

“Wonderful time!”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

For part of day of bonding 5 female coworkers chose to spend our afternoon with Vertical Illusions. We got in the van, not sure where we were going and after a 30 minute drive ended up in a beautiful private park where our guides Colton and Zach escorted us on an exhilarating hike to the top of Chimney Rock and well worth the climb! Two in our group had previously zip-lined, but with instructions of Colton and Zach the rest of us caught up. Fifteen zip-lines down, with #10 being the favorite even though our knees shook for while afterwards. If you have chance to spend the time, seek these folks out. They are young and energetic and make you relaxed so you could concur your fears and have a great day.
