This was a good deal. Great panoramic view and a high ride down hill. We brought the grand kids there for the ride and it worked out well. One had a problem with heights; so prior to it we visited the Branson Landing zip as an intro. That gave the confidence for this high ride. It helped the transition to the zip line in Reed's Spring. A very therapeutic Trifecta. Well worth the price and the kids loved it; that's what counts.

We did the trail of lights and it was wonderful. The music was at every location and loud enough to hear. The observation tower was spectacular! Took the glass elevator up got the see the whole town of Branson lit up! I may go back during the day to zip line but i have to work up the cojones to do that... :)

"Wasn't sure what to expect, but I expected more"

This was my first time on a zip line, so I really didn't know what to expect, and I did expect more... for it to seem like I was moving faster, more excitement, more bang for my buck. I did enjoy it though, it was a great ride and a beautiful view as you go down the 2000 ft line. The people there are very friendly, I was impressed by the two girls at the top, they are late teens, maybe early 20's, maybe, and they made everyone feel comfortable about the ride. There was a mother there with her two young girls and the mother was nervous, she ended up not going, but the two workers did not pressure her but tried to comfort the mom as she started to have a anxiety attack. They were very professional.It is great for people of all ages too, there was a couple in their 80's who just got off of it when my wife and I showed up, they loved it! I would ride this again, just try and find a coupon, the $32 fee seems high to me.

"Great fun for first time zip line"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed September 30, 2016
I went on this ride and it was my first experience with a zip line. This line is extremely high, which I suppose is why it is called "extreme"', but actually the ride is very scenic and relaxing. Safety is clearly a priority for the operator of this ride. The chair set up could not be more secure. The folks who strap you into the chair and the ones who help you out on the other end are courteous and efficient. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone from about age 7 to age 90. The only scary part of this ride is anticipating it. Once you are moving, it is just plain fun. There is an elevator to ride up the tower but there are a few stairs to climb down from the observation deck, so may not be accessible to all.

"Great for First Time Zip Liners"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed August 31, 2016
I am not a dare devil by any means but for some reason I really wanted to zip line. I decided this would be a great place to get my feet wet as they don't use harnesses. It is a seat that you sit in and they strap you in. There is no steering and no braking to worry about. They open they door and away you go. I have to say I loved every second of it and if there was truly any down side it was that just as I was beginning to feel relaxed and enjoy it the ride was over. So yes it is a very short ride but I think it is worth the money. We did opt to purchase the flash drive of photos since it was my husband and I that went at the same time. Oh and while we were there senior citizens were riding it. They even have a photo on the wall of an 80 year old woman riding it. So no fear to be had!
