We've been zip-lining before - from one in Saluda, SC, to one in Costa Rica and one out in Wyoming. By far, this was the best.

We went with a group of all ages, a dozen of us including an 80+ year old who needed assistance to get to the beginning of the course.

To start with, after suiting you up, they bring you to a learning area, to try this whole thing out, learn the basics -- and for some, a chance to change your mind!
That learning area was fantastic, eliminated the uncertainty and made the rest of the course fun.

There were about a dozen zips (don't quote me on the numbers) of varying lengths and speeds, even a pair of zips next to each other for racing. You zipped through forests and over lakes. There were a few 'scary' bridges -- I'm not fond of scary bridges, but I did 'em. Good feeling of accomplishment.

The whole thing was incredibly professionally done; our guides (Cory, Nate, Heather) were all helpful when help was needed, fun and exciting when appropriate, and always safety first. The care they took -- and the support they extended -- with our older friend was amazing.

For a day full of laughing, excitement and camaraderie, run by a team of professionals, this is The Place to go. Thanks Jack and Becky and your staff for a fabulous day.

Whitewater rafting has always been on my bucket list. So we had a chance to go this year for my birthday. Our guide Nick was awesome. Very knowledgeable about the river. If you ever get a chance to go ask for him... We did the mini trip as this was both our first time whitewater rafting. I would def go back and do the longer trip plus zip lining. This was certainly the best birthday I have had... Thanks to all the staff and Nick.. you were "Wicked"

We flew down from Canada in order to try white water rafting for first time. On October 3, 2017 we did section 3, because my wife was very nervous. We both had a great time. Our guide Ryan did a fantastic job -- he worked hard, was easy to get along with, had a great sense of humour, was VERY informative and it was obvious that for both him and his co-worker Nate that our safety was of the utmost importance. You should see these guys run with a raft over their heads...one raft for each of them. We had so much fun that we are contemplating going again next year to try section 4 and take on the level 4 & 5 rapids, and requesting Ryan to be our guide again. Thanks for making our entire vacation!! Even the supervisor was great... he told us about a waterfall to stop at on the way home, and we are so glad we did ... it was beautiful. A little addendum -- we were on the water for approx. 5 hours!

For the 60th birthday of our dear familymember, we booked section 4 wild water rafting.
Meetin and safety briefing were spot on (“we don’t compromise on your safety”) and guide Ryan is the man. He is fun, a master of the rapids and has a great sense of humor. We loved the entire experience including the lunch. Highly recommended!!!
