This course requires self breaking with a gloved hand but it was really simple and quite natural once we tried it. The instructors did an excellent job walking us through the process and getting us out on the course safely. The progression from beginner obstacles to the biggest ones was gradual and perfect for building our confidence. Make sure you... More

Courtney and Travis guided us on this shorter tour of zip lining, which was just the right amount, given it was over 90 degrees on this afternoon! It was HOT but AWESOME, as my niece and I braved the heat and humidity for a little high rise fresh air! We had a nice size group, which moved things along. This... More

Definitely recommend this to anyone with teens looking for thrills. White water rafting through the same company available on site. We did both on the same day and picniced on site. Covered tables...

Noah and Steve gave of us the rides of our life's rafting. Their energy was infectious and we never laughed so hard. We all agreed it... More

Stephanie and Nate were super guides as our family of 4 made our way around the zip line course. They did a great job teaching us safety tips and then encouraging us to enjoy the ride. The course is excellent. We did the short course which took about an hour. It has great runs. The long course has a spot... More
