“Wow!! Talk about a zip!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2008

I took the 4 ladies I was with on Antigua to the Antigua Rainforest and Canopy tour for the zip line experience. We wound up doing both the zip line experience and also the challenge course. The guides (rangers) there are absolutely fabulous! They are very friendly, courteous and most importantly practice safety in everything they do.
The zip line adventure consisted of 9 zip trips (after 2 practice zips). The longest was about 400' over a canyon about 350' high. The zip lines are constructed extremely well and take into account every aspect of safety. For this reason we were able to completely enjoy the zips. One lady in our party, who is almost 70, had a hard time with the landings. One of the rangers helped her for the rest of the trip. It was a very nice touch and very much appreciated. I can't recommend this experience enough - an absolute must do if you go to Antigua and want a total adrenaline rush.
The rope challenge course was OK. It was actually kind of a downer after all the adrenaline of the zips. It isn't too hard but also isn't all that much fun. I would skip it if I went back.
Overall the staff is great and the experience is fantastic!!

“A must place to visit in Antigua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2007

Hi all,
i went on this trip and can recommend it to all, absolutely fanastatic and a once in a lifetime experience. All the staff are great and they make sure your fully kitted up before you go anywhere. My girlfriend was a bit nervous on the first 2 zip lines but after the initial nerves she loved it. There were a group of kids with there parents in front of us and one even had a broken arm so i guess anybody can do it if a 10 year old can.
If you end up on easycruise as we did then you can book the trip there. Otherwise a map is on there website [--]
I have also added a short video on my profile so you can see what it's like.
ps. don't forget to take your camera for short movies.
