This is a high caliber and high class operation. Our guides Jacob and Becky were amazing--knowledgeable, capable, supportive and SO much fun. We did the Peak 1 zip line course which was challenging and beautiful. We then rock climbed which was especially great for my 13 year old climber who had yet to climb outside. During my life I've driven... More

Run by a person (Easton) that always has a smile on his face, Vertical Illusions has introduced me to so many different adventures in Central Wisconsin that I didn't know existed. Whether it is hiring experienced guides for our Boy Scout troop with a kayak trip down the Wisconsin River, Zip Lining or Ice Climbing or taking my kids out... More

Amazing staff, especially the snow boarding instructor Easton! We rented downhill skis, cross country skis and snow boards and were very happy with everything. I would just strongly recommend reservations.

If you are looking for a fun day with friends and some amazing views while doing it, I would highly recommend doing the Ziplining with Vertical Illusions. Be prepared for a nice hike through nature to get your experience started. As we walked through nature, Easton gave us a lot of facts about the area including a fact that some... More

Went ziplining with my husband and our friend. It was the first time ziplining for all three of us. Our guides Jacob and Micah were amazing. They thoroughly explained everything to us and made us feel comfortable. I have a huge fear of heights and they were patient and reassuring that it was all secure. They were very personable and...

I’ve zip lined twice in life, both times in 2016. I’ve done Bigfoot first and then Vertical Illusions. I enjoyed them both, but I really enjoyed the personal relationship and intimacy with nature at VI. Bigfoot is fun, adrenalin-pumping and less expensive, but they kind of run you through like cattle since it’s a high volume operation. Easton and Katie... More

It was such an amazing experience! I HIGHLY recommend it to any beginners or to those who have kayak'd before. Our guide, Micah, was very friendly, nice, and accommodating. He took u, my bf and I, to some great spots on the WI river and guided me (a beginner) through some rough waters. As well as, tell us stories and... More

We had an amazing time! This is the best zip lining course you will find. We had the pleasure of having the owner be our guide and he is one cool dude! We couldn't go on the tour at their standard times, but they made it work so we could go a little later in the day. They were more... More

Our family of five decided to try ziplining and didn't have high expectations as most of the attractions in the Dells these days are over commercialized. Vertical Illusions is one of those rare off the beaten path activities that gets back to the heart of the Dells- the natural beauty of the environment that originally drew people to this area....

WE had a GREAT time on our zip line tour with our family of 7, ages 9-64. Our guides Jacob & Sarah were fun and knowledgable- and funny! The course is beautiful and NOT like a sideshow attraction. It took a good 3 hours to complete! The hike to the top was a nice bonus that we weren't expecting- gorgeous... More
