Overview
More
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.

It was a great adventure, and fun. We saw whole Catskill Mountains from the air with bird's eyes. All guides are very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and make sure that everybody is having fun. You must experience at least once (possibly more).

This is a brilliant way to spend a few hours. The Skyrider Zipline tour is exciting and nerve-wracking enough to let you feel adventurous, but also completely safe and very well managed. This place doesn't have any of the annoying machismo that some outdoors/adventuring business...More

I cannot say definitively, but I would think they would not allow a selfie stick. Several of the lines require two hands on the pulley. The go pros were amazingly clear and had great video quality!

We only had music on the ride up and down, not while zip lining.

You are driven to the top. There are 5 lines plus a 6th or walk across a bridge. Yup, it is possible to go fast, but I imagine you need to get a good run and know what body position you need To be in for that optimal speed... More
