    The most exciting new thrill rides in the eastern Caribbean in one tour! Glide to St. Maarten’s highest point on the Sky Explorer then go flying back down the mountain on the world’s steepest zip line, The Flying Dutchman. Take the Sentry Hill Zip Line over the mountain ridge enjoying the stunning views of beautiful St. Maarten. Then your top-to-bottom tour finishes with the Schooner Ride sending you surfing down the mountain in an inner tube. Embark the Sky Explorer ride to the top of Sentry Hill, St. Maarten’s highest elevation at 1,125 feet. A series of platforms encircle the mountaintop showcasing 360-degree views of the whole island. You´ll fly down the mountain at speeds of up to 56 miles per hour on the world’s steepest zip line, The Flying Dutchman.  You’ll be attached to a flight line in a secure harnessed chair to experience the ride of a lifetime; after you will enjoy the zipline over the mountain ridge, then you will surf down the mountain in an inner tube, Schooner ride.

We had a great time here today. A very special thank you to Esmerald who was one of the attendants on the Flying Dutchman. It was quite hot today and allowed us to wait in the shade before our turn. An unruly woman attempted to cut us in line and she very respectfully told her

Thank you for the awesome review blancab361, Happy you had an amazing time at the park and was able to conquer The Steepest Zipline in the world! The Flying Dutchman is definitely an unforgettable experience worth adding to your bucket list while visiting our beautiful 37 square mile island. We're lucky to have Esmeralda on our team, she's truly a Gem! We'll definitely tell her you said hello. Thanks for spending the day with us, can't wait to welcome you back!

It was a lot of fun, very well run. Friendly staff, waits were tolerable. Scenery was absolutely amazing! The only part that was a little disappointing was the Flying Dutchman. Unfortunately, when we went, there was a strong headwind that slowed down the decent a lot. Didn’t get

Hi A2284CUdanielg, Thank you for your review. Our team is happy to hear you had a great time enjoying the panoramic views at the top of Sentry Hill. We understand the Flying Dutchman wasn't quite as expected, as there are several factors that may influence the speed in which you descend the mountain. Such as weight, wind direction, harnessed in the inner lines vs outer zip lines. We appreciate your feedback and hope you consider giving the park a second chance to experience The Steepest Zip Line in The World!

Went with my hubby and rode the chair lift way up to the top of the mountain! He zipped down on the Flying Dutchman and I rode the chairlift back down. What a tremendous view from the top! Interesting history of the property. It was a very windy day with rain on and off so I

Hi akbuddie, Thank you for the 5 Star review! Glad to hear you had an amazing time at the park and enjoyed the Views from the top of Sentry Hill! The Top Deck offers spectacular 360 Views of the Dutch side of the island and part of the French side. With perfect weather more than 50% of the year, we expect occasional showers which we are thankful for. Showers maintain our vibrant green environment surrounding Rockland Estate. Thanks for spending the day with us, Hope to see you again!

Overall pretty good. Everyone very pleasant and helpful every step of the way. First step off the zip line makes for an exciting ride. Prepare for a sudden stop at the end doesn't do the warning justice, heavier folks be prepared after the speed you have coming down.

Dear spbeecher, Thank you for the review. Happy to hear you had a good time at the top of Sentry Hill! We understand the automatic braking system at the Flying Dutchman may come as a surprise for some. Our staff at the top do advise to zipline participants to have arms tucked in and legs apart for a much smoother landing experience. There are a few factors that may influence the speed in which you descend the mountain; Such as weight, wind direction, inner lines vs outer lines. However, we can assure you at all times you are completely safe during the ride. Thank you for the feedback!
