    What to Expect
    The most exciting new thrill rides in the eastern Caribbean in one tour! Glide to St. Maarten’s highest point on the Sky Explorer then go flying back down the mountain on the world’s steepest zip line, The Flying Dutchman. Re-ascend and take the Sentry Hill Zip Line over the mountain ridge enjoying the stunning views of beautiful St. Maarten. Then your top-to-bottom tour finishes with the Schooner Ride sending you surfing down the mountain in an inner tube.

     

    You will be guided to the plantation house, built in the 1700s, to learn the powerful story of Trace Wilson, born into slavery on the estate in 1818 and his descendant Emilio Wilson who purchased the property to educate current and future generations about the conditions of plantation life as well as the customs, traditions and history of St. Maarten, “The Friendly Island.”

     

    Embark the Sky Explorer for the approximately 25-minute ride to the top of Sentry Hill, St. Maarten’s highest elevation at 1,125 feet. A series of platforms encircle the mountaintop showcasing 360-degree views of the whole island including vistas of neighboring islands Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barts and Anguilla.

     

    A brief orientation will prepare you to fly down the mountain at speeds of up to 56 miles per hour on the world’s steepest zip line, The Flying Dutchman.  You’ll be attached to a flight line in a secure harnessed chair, launching you on the 1050-foot drop in elevation over 2800 feet to experience the ride of a lifetime.

     

    Embark the Sky Explorer for your journey up to the transfer station. After your orientation, you will put your safety equipment and harness system for your Sentry Hill Zip Line flight over the mountain ridge.

     

    To complete your top-to-bottom thrill ride, the Sky Explorer will take you to the Schooner Ride where you’ll surf down the mountain in an inner tube through the curves and straightaways of a specially designed track.

     

    After your fun-filled adventure, select your favorite photo and video then enjoy exploring the Estate and sampling St. Maarten delicacies, snacks and beverages at the restaurant.

    Let’s just say if you love adrenaline this is for you! But beware the internet and picture systems do not work and no effort is being made to fix it. St Maarten is still trying to recover from a recent hurricane. The schooner is awesome but try to get on a smaller tube for max

    Dear Andrew, Thank you for your review! Our team here at Rockland Estate is pleased to hear you had a marvelous time experiencing The Best 360 Views and Zip line Adventure with us. The Schooner ride is a great way to warm up for the other attractions. We must say, both adults and kids enjoy this attraction laughing the entire way down the mountain! There's complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the park. However, on the day you visited we've been facing technical challenges with the system. This leading to the automated shutters on the attraction cameras not functioning as they should. We understand your disappoint and apologize for the inconvenience. We're working closely with the IT Team to resolve this challenge as soon as possible. Thank you for visiting our beautiful island, Glad the Views and Zip line was the highlight of your vacation!

    There are 3 different portions to this Saint Maarten Rain Forest Adventure Zipline. You don't have to do all 3, but you might regret it if you leave any out. A chair lift takes you to where you need to go. The wife and I are 70+ and enjoyed the heck out of the three packages.

    What a blast! My wife, daughter and I went on the tube ride, zip line and the Flying Dutchman. My wife had been zip lining once before and hated it. I talked her into doing this against her better judgment. She’s glad I did. The zip line and the Flying Dutchman are thrill rides
