We did the all day adventure tour that included the inner tubing, zip lines, horseback riding, lunch, and hot springs. I will review each separately.
INNER TUBING - Loved it. It was a blast. Way more fun than white water rafting. You are on the river for about 50 minutes. There are rapids you blast through interspersed with quiet parts where you can float and see frogs and butterflies. They need to let people know that there are changing rooms at both ends and that they will transport your dry clothes in between as there was a ton of confusion about whether we had to go for the horseback ride in our swimming gear to get to the tour.
HORSE BACK RIDE - Nice. Horses were generally pretty docile. The fastest you go is a quick trot.
HOT SPRINGS - Nice. Be sure to try painting yourself with the hot mud on the far side of the river - across the hanging bridge. The pools there range from cool to very hot so you can try each one to find a temperature that works for you.
ZIP LINES - The scenery is spectacular. The guides are very good. The lines and equipment seem to be well maintained. The reason we struggled with the rating was because the zip line tour was WAY overloaded. The guides were forced to take care of multiple people at the same time creating potentially dangerous situations. For instance a single guide on a platform was hooking up one person to an outgoing line while at the same time another person was already on their way to the platform on an inbound line. Since the guides are responsible for breaking at the end, a small distraction with the outbound person will someday result in them not making back in time to put on the breaks for the inbound person. And the inbound person is going to slam into the people waiting on the platform knocking them off. Yes, they are all on safety lines so no one is going to fall 50 feet to their death. But people are going to be super unhappy and potentially hurt in this process. We saw this situation occur at multiple stations along the route. The management needs to limit the number of people being put through all at once to avoid the guides being overloaded in this way before an accident occurs.
