Fantastic trip. Guides are very knowledgable about the area and the course. Safety is extremely important and emphasized throughout the experience in a fun way. 15 zip lines of varying lengths and challenge. My 8 year old daughter had an absolute blast and the guides...More

Zip Lining at VI is much more than a few zip lines strewn across a couple platforms. It's the real deal from start to finish: shuttled out twenty mins from town to a beautiful area of cliffs and bluffs, hike to the top, and then...More

Let me start off with what Vertical Illusions isn't. It isn't an illusion. It isn't some hyped up flash in the pan fast food tour-trap theme park ride. It's substantiative. The Wisconsin Dells itself is a kitschy touristy place that's more suited to the "Illusions"...More

Agree, we went Kayaking only and we were pretty tired after doing just that. I would say do one or two activities per day. The guys at VI can advise as well when you call. They are very helpful.
