Sue and Tony were just opening up for the year and fit us in on a beautiful spring day. Awesome, awesome, awesome. Proessional instruction and loved learning a few tricks!! Felt safe the whole way. We were promised a good time and they delivered.

Wife and I (60 +/-) had a great time. Staff was couldn't be better. Big plus for us was the absence of rope "bridges" from platform to platform. These can be intimidating. Only suggestion for improvement would be steps and handrails on the few areas...More

The prospect of my son zip lining across the mountains had me a little unnerved but they had so much fun I feel I must make a thoughtful review. I saw all the videos (I'm personally afraid of heights so didn't attend) and the staff...More

Sue, Isaac, and Tony were all amazing! The course is 11 lines (in 2016), starting at the top of the mountain and working down. Every line has something unique to try or experience. Having been on several zip line courses, I thought this was the...More

I don't LOVE roller coasters, but I'm usually okay once I get on. Is zip lining for me?

Much smoother, no big drops, not too fast. First zip might be a bit scary but I really think you will like it

Hi, I've gone a few times and have seen individuals who were afraid of heights go on the zips. First of all you learn about your gear as they gear you up... the pulleys, carbines and the lines... etc. The guides are very... More

I am included with 7 other women who want to zipline at RidgeRunner in October. I am very afraid of heights (can only go on 3 steps of a ladder) so I am very nervous about being part of this group. We are all mid 60's and 70's. What do you think?
