Went on a 90 minute High Rope and zipline adventure. Our instructor Jay was hilarious, super helpful and accomodating. The phrase time flies when you're having fun couldnt be truer here. Such a great time with a great instructor!

Jay was thorough in his instruction before we began the ice climb and he enthusiastically supported me as I made a number of ascents. He clearly loves to climb and works to inspire confidence in his students.

A local grade 4 boy had his birthday party here during my September, 2015, visit. There are quite long double ziplines, a small climbing wall, and a multi-facetted play house and slide. The kids had a great time. Staff were very safety conscious.
