It was freezing when we visited on a Saturday. The cold didn’t stop our crew from having a blast. The zipline is short it fun. Paid extra for the unlimited rides and was able to experience day and night rides. Both were very different experiences. Worth the cost and tons of fun!

This is a short one leg zip line, seated in a two person chair. You start on a platform and are pulled up over a river, backwards. Then released and you zip back down with speed. Kinda a beginners zipline as there is no climbing up a tower and no harnesses involved. But, if your looking for the true zipline experience this isn't quite that type.

"Unlimited Rides in the Rain"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed March 28, 2018
We bought the unlimited rides package and it was raining. After 8 consecutive trips I got off and let our son ride about 20 more times. He was wet but had a blast. You ate pulled back across the river and left to free run back down the line to the station in a 2 person seat. Secure but still unnerving. Had a great time.

Having ridden ziplines before and knowing some are better than others was pleased that you don’t have to brake yourself. This one is designed for anyone wishing the thrill without the hassles of some other ziplines. This one has an actual seat to sit in not just a harness.

"Fun stuff!"

Reviewed October 11, 2017
I have never been on a zipline before until I tried this. It was fun and I felt a little scared but that made it even more fun. The view is beautiful and you get an adrenalin rush! It is a bit pricey and then you also have an option to buy your pictures that they take!
