Was reluctant to do the zip line but it turned out to be fun, not scary, even for senior citizens. You're strapped into a seat and it stops automatically so you don't have to worry about any controls. They'll warn you that it ends with a jolt, and it does, but nothing to concern yourself with. While waiting for your turn, you can enjoy the lookout from the top of the tower. Especially nice in the fall with the fall foliage. They take multiple pictures of you during your ride, which you are free to purchase if you like.
People much older than we are were taking this 60 second zip line ride! You are in an actual seat, not hanging from harnesses and you don't have to do a thing but enjoy looking at the scenery all around you. The system has its own breaks and you do stop abruptly, so hold on to your camera tightly! The stop was a little surprising, so if you have back problems this might not be for you. We had a BLAST!!!
Although this it's not the most daring zipline I've done, it was well worth it. The views from atop the tower overlooking the Shepard of the Hills site is very nice. The zip itself can be enjoyed by anyone being a long straight and fast trip from the tower summit...enough to get the blood rushing yet not enough to make you cry ! We really enjoyed it!

It was an interesting trip up to the mountains. Yes, the cashier was very good! At the top, the gal who headed it, was on the "phone" almost all of the whole time! They were boring! We asked about the the tower,etc., but she said, "Don't know!" My wife did the Vigilante Extreme ...it was about 60 seconds. I don't really know the prices we paid, but it was not worth it.
