What a thrill. I was here with my 15 and 16 year old kids. Weather conditions were perfect. I didn't expect this adventure to be so thrilling. I do lots of hiking in the mountains and thought that I am not afraid of heights... I...More

I didn't actually do the abseil myself but my 13 year old daughter and her 15 year old friend did. The instructors were great with the girls and they both said it was the best thing they'd ever done. Thank you for helping and supporting...More

Hi I would just like to know if you book a ticket online and the cable cars are not operating for example due to bad weather can you cancel the abseil and use for a different day?

Yes if cable cars aren't operating I can rebook. We did book online. Best crew to take photos and videos of your abseil! Cool experience
