    My girlfriend and I went zip lining last weekend and had a blast. The first zip is a little scary, but by the fifth, it was easy--and fun along the way, great views. Our very conscientious guides Jay H. and Justin R. made us feel totally safe.

    My daughter and I had a wonderful experience! It's all about taking that 1st step off the platform. The team is wonderful and we definitely enjoyed our Mother & Daughter adventures <3

    Good Views, but for the money you really just receive about 2 minutes of actual zipping. The 2 hour purchase (in terms of minutes) is mainly safety briefing, bus ride, and waiting for other people to zip in your groups of 10. Actual rides are generally between 10 and 20 seconds
