Zip lining was cool. The rope courses was cool too! Workers were patient and helpful.

I wish there was another zipline because the line took so long..or maybe there was just a lot of people that day.

They were super organized and supportive! The location was really pretty, the price was right. We wish we had signed up for more activities.

The staff was absolutely wonderful! They made sure my grandchildren had a day they will remember forever! The ropes course was so much fun for them and the rafting gave them the challenge they wanted. I would go back ONLY if that horrid owner is not around!

I purchased this for my two grandchildren for their graduation gift. I had brought my elderly Pug with me to film the activities, as I had not noticed any notice that dogs were not allowed. He was adored by all the staff and customers. Not one staff member mentioned anything to discourage my dog's presence. When the kids left for the afternoon rafting, my husband and I decided to wait for them by the river where the rafts had been launched. A man, who claimed to be the owner, approached us and very rudely told us to leave and that dogs were not allowed. I tried to explain that the dog had been there all day and no one had mentioned it. This man was worse than rude to us! We had to drive down the road and wait at a restaurant that allowed dogs outside. When we returned for the kids, the staff told me they try to keep him away from the customers as much as possible due to his rude behavior. They also said they work extra hard to make up for his lack of social manners.

Enjoyed the entire experience. The high ropes course was great fun, as was the rafting. The staff was so very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend everything!

If possible, rental of helmet cams would add to the experience.
