A First Class Operation

This place is a first class operation. The staff is friendly and helpful at all times. The facility is superior to the other outdoor companies in the area. We went on the rafting trip and the zip line adventure park. Two great days, we will definitely go back for more activities.
Had an Incredible Time

My son and I had an incredible time at the Zip Line Adventure Park today. The guides were courteous and polite and still ensured everyone's safety. It was an amazing experience, and one I look forward to doing again soon.

We did the Zip Line Adventure Park and Whitewater Rafting, both were awesome! The guys working the zip line were so nice, very knowledgeable, and patient with the kids (and adults!). The obstacle course is unnerving, but once you get comfy it is fun. Raft guides were funny, and knew what they were doing.
