We will be doing this in November and have a 5 year (6 in Dec.) old as well. Did they go own their own, or did they do a Taxi Ride with you or the guide?
Also, if for some reason my 5 year old freaks out is there a way for them to stop half way through or once you start do you have to go all the way to the end?
They were on their own in terms of each zip line. I don't believe there's a way to bail out 1/2 through but the guides were so great I think they'd help with any meltdowns.
There is no way for them to stop halfway through I don't think you would have to check with them. They do have children come and they cater o families all the time so I'm sure they would be able to help you out with any questions :)
A five or six year old can do it on their own. I saw a couple of ropes leading downward that seemed to be some kind of exit for emergencies. But I would say you'd likely need to go the whole course. It was high up, but we never felt scared. You are always attached to lines, and the platforms are pretty big.
Once you start this activity there is no other option but to finish it. You walk up to the first run and from there you are in the canopies and zip from one to the next.
They will zip on their own. We had an 8 yr old girl in the group and she was doing flips. The guides are wonderful at making everyone feel safe.
However, if a child is not prone to doing activities that push the envelope you may not want to chose another activity.
Hi there. Not suitable for young ones in my view. Turning back half way through would be possible but not particularly easy. But as another traveller has said, give 'em a call and ask.
I did not have kids with me nor were there any on our tour. There are points at which you can "get off" the tour but you are at times 100 feet up. Getting down will be no less fearful than continuing. It is unnerving at times. If there's a question about a child's nerves, I might not take them on this tour. Feel free to contact them. Email or call the owner direct. He's fluent in English.
