“Epic adventure - fun and safe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014

This is our first time to experience zipline and kayak. We did them back to back. From 9:00am to about 10:30am - we finished the 6 zip lines. It was very simple and exciting for beginners like us. My wife, 14 yo son, and 10 yo daughter enjoyed it! Tyler and Chris helped us go through the simple steps of zipline. They did all the work - we just have to follow and enjoy the ride. Rocky and Tommy helped us navigate the river through calm and rough waters. Their simple instructions were very helpful and they were there in every step watching and guiding us. We finished the 3 mile long river kayak from 11 am to 1 pm. It was worth trying. We were not athletic, we don't work out, and we're not that strong to do these activities but we made it!! Thank you guys for having us have a good time!! We will definitely come back and get our friends join us next time.

“Awesome”

Our family of four from Indiana had a great time. This was our first zip lining experience. We would do it again. Tyler and Chis were our instructors...funny guys, and made the experience memorable. Loved it!

“Great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2014 via mobile

Start of the season. 4 adults with 2 young kids riding tandem with their dads. Had to leave the littlest (6) behind, but she probably could have managed. The guides were serious, careful to train us, and safety conscious. Things relaxed once they put us on the course and sized up our abilities. Friendly nice people. Call ahead to reserve and ask when the water will be running. (Currently Wed and Fri). The kayaking itself is through a peaceful fast moving stretch of the Broad River. Not too cold. I think there were 2 sections of rapids that were challenging for a beginner. This probably won't be a thrill for an expert rafter or kayaker. Nice way to explore this peaceful area, cool off, and get away from the lake crowd (if there is one).

“Family fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

Our family had so much fun at Canopy Ridge Farm. We have an 11 yr old an a 13 yr old. We felt so comfortable with our guides, who made us feel very safe and made us laugh the whole time. Our 11 yr old giggled the entire time we were out there. I haven't seen her have so much fun in a while. We all said the trip was our favorite activity in the area. Thanks Chris and Tommy for a fun afternoon.
