We had an afternoon time slot, and although it was raining during the test run and ride up the hill, by the time we were ziplining the weather had cleared up. The staff was friendly and organized, and made the experience better by their positive energy. Alonso was our lead guy and did a great job. It was fun to... More

The zip lines and Tarzan swing were long and well designed to thrill We did feel like we were on a conveyor belt (a very fast one) with each line being hastily dealt with and little time to ponder. Some of the guides needed lessons in customer service - they have done it a thousand times - we hadn't! On... More

A really good experience, very well organized and very exciting. There are some very long runs and very high in the canopy of the volcano. The views are amazing and the staff are fantastic. I would highly recommend this if you want to give it a try.

Earlier this week, we did the canopy tour and "Tarzan Swing" at Ecoglide. The operation is as impressive as the views and the attention to safety was very welcome. First and foremost, this place uses double cables. while I'm sure single cables found at most places are probably safe, I loved the additional peace of mind. After a brief training,... More

We had a great time zipping though the forest. The lines were fairly quick and the views were great. I was impressed that we had so many guides that went with our group. That meant that more than one person could be riding one of the zip lines at one time. Therefore, less time standing on the platforms waiting. We... More

Once geared up and after a short instruction by staff on a practice line they take you up the hill in an open truck to do 14 zip lines of varying length. At each end they help you on and off the cable. Felt totally safe with the crew and their equipment. More fun then us two 60 year olds... More

We chose the 10 am time slot and took our two kids ages 15 and 17. It took a few minutes to check everyone in, but we were given equipment and instruction fairly quickly. We did a quick test on a short cable nearby, and we then loaded a truck to go up the volcano. Once up there, we went... More
