          I am considering taking my two grand daughters, age 7 and 12, here for a week. I know my 12 year old and myself, would love to do the zip line. Can the 7 year old come to watch or are there other activities for her while we do this?

          Sorry for the late answer- but YES there are other activities for the younger kids to do. Two activities are always offered at each time slot- one High Adventure (10+) and one all ages.
