Went to the wine tasting before dinner up at the Skyline restaurant. Enjoyable experience. Staff were very professional and attentive toward visitors. Sara was our host and provided an informative wine commentary. Would definitely go again.

Had a tasting and a cheese plate. The server Johnny was super entertaining! He helped make it a really fun experience. We did not do any of the other activities at the adventure park, but was still worth a visit.
