We went Ziplining on the Canopy Gorge Trail with my three boys 11, 13 and 16. We had never gone before. We had the most amazing leaders...Colby, Suzanna and Sky. They were polite, professional and instilled our greatest confidence. They were very knowledgeable and friendly.. At one point I did not brake properly and was heading straight for a tree...Colby...

Nov 23, 2016 1:00PM adventure: Our group included three adults, two high schoolers, and one middle schooler. We had an absolute blast. The well qualified staff demonstrated such professionalism making it a first class experience. Recommend this venue to anybody who even has a slight interest in zip lining. This was my first time.

The Kid Zips were great. Most places only let 10 year old and older kids Zipline. This place lets them start at 4 and it is very safe. I took my 11 year old and 7 year old and they had a blast for their first time ziplining. Thanks for a great experience.

Brought my eight and four year olds for their kid zipz course. They had a phenomenal time. Course guide was very patient and attentive especially with the younger one for whom this was a new experience. Highly recommended.

A group of 8 of us went on the zip line tour, it was totally worth the money, we had so much fun and even the folks that were a bit scared had a good time. The guides were awesome, professional, knowledgable, and funny. We had a blast and a great way to turn 50

Second time ziplining for my husband and me and first time for our two sons (ages 10 and 13). We had a great time! Our guides clearly knew what they were doing and, in addition to providing helpful info about ziplining, they provided info about the trees, plants, history, and views. They really helped make our trip fun. We started... More
