We weren't entirely sure what to expect, and our adventure down the Upper Pigeon with Jake was fantastic! We left wishing it was longer and there were more rapids to enjoy. It's an excellent value for the price, the checkin was simple, the staff was...More

Well I have been looking forward to this for sometime. Wasn't all I thought it would be. The guides were personable and thorough but wasn't as exciting as I hoped for. I think I would have enjoyed more if there was a different way to...More

I loved both of our tour guides Shane and Lawson. They were great helpers and were very funny too. All of the lines were fun and it’s worth it to upgrade to the full. They also took great pictures for a good price. It was...More

The guides were very good and took their time with safety training. The only reason i did not give higher reviews is the lines themselves. When you buy the 7 lines, the first 3 or 4 are literally in their back yard. Don't get me...More

Great fun Zip lining here, especially over the river. We arrived early and since they had some large groups coming, they took us about 40 minutes early and just the 4 of us. Would recommend the longer tour, our river tour was only a little...More

I will admit that I am very afraid of heights. That said I would definitely do this again. The entire family had a great time. That is not easy to do with teenagers. We did the extended tour, I highly recommend this one. I could...More
