My wife and two children were a little apprehensive doing a zipline however the Sky Rangers were great and put us all at ease. After the first line we became hooked. It is a beautiful area and the Bigfoot Zipline facility is very nice. Would definitely revisit.

Our family trip to the Bigfoot Zipline was a blast! Everyone in our family had a really great time. At first we were a little impatient as we were told to arrive a half an hour before our reservation time at 10:00. When we got there, the 9:30 group still hadn't left, so we had a long wait. Then we had to get suited up. Our sender was Brock and our catcher was Sass. They both were entertaining throughout our tour. A short bus ride brought us to the practice site, where the Sky Rangers demonstrated the technique, which was suprisingly simple. By the time we were done with the first zipline, the wait was forgotten, even though the first zipline is more for learning the ropes, literally. It was very hot during our tour, around 90 degrees, but Bigfoot Zipline provided free water for everyone. After the final zipline, a 50 mile per hour racing line 1300 feet long, everyone in the family wished that it didn't have to end. We all had so much fun and can't wait until we get to go back.

There are six courses and a training course. Our guides were Tommy and Gilligan. They were both very personable and funny. I am scared of heights, but still managed to have an outstanding time. Most of the courses averaged 700-800ft, but the last one was 1400ft and the staging deck was higher than the tree canopy. They encouraged you to have fun going down the line, but made it clear that safety is number one. We will definitely go back.

Our family of four (2 boys ages 11 and 13) went to Bigfoot Zipline feeling a little apprehensive because we are afraid of heights. But the scariest part was probably to climb up the steps of those towers and see the ground below.
In our group there were only two more boys and we had four guides. They helped us to put harnesses and then they took us on a short bus ride to the first tower. Guides were very knowledgeable, supportive, and funny; they explained and showed everything just right.

When you take that very first step of the platform and start gliding it feels amazing. Even when we were flipped backwards in the middle of the line it was still a lot of fun. There are six lines and four of them go across the little lake and it also adds some excitement. After the second line kids started trying to do some tricks like going upside down, without holding on to the harness.
I would recommend BigFoot Zipline even if you afraid of heights - the harness makes you feel very safe. Also even one of our severely height-challenged kids who walked the stairs with trembling knees first time was practically running upstairs by the third tower.

The price is a bit steep - $79 per person so I would suggest getting a Family values card or Culvers family Savings card that gives you free admission for children 11 years old and younger with the paid adult admission.
We also got Wisconsin Dells coupon book for $20 that has a Buy one get one free coupon for any age admission.
