I wasn't so sure about this but my granddaughter has zip lined before and loves it. She is 16, my husband and I are not! There are times I can't deal with the height issue so wasn't sure I would be able to do this. Our guides were Max and "John", not his real name but the name started after we ask him to pronounce his name again. They were great and had a great sense of humor and gave us info about the trees animals etc. Think there is some ploy there to keep your mind off of stepping off a platform 80 ft high. Needless to say we had a great time and only once, ok maybe twice that I had an issue but they got me right thru it. Think I would do it again!
