“Don't worry zipping is not as bad as it looks. It's easy peasy!”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

Went with two teens and five mature yet competitive adults (late 40's-mid 60's). Very impressed how safe and easy it was to zip. Certainly stepping off the first time was a little nerve wracking but able to stRfish and cannonball as well as keep eyes open to enjoy sights of canyon below. Did the dangle (upside down). Only the youngest teen and the oldest didn't do. Thought it would be hard to get the lard butt ontop but very easy to go that way.
Our flight guides were Mackenzie and Graham. Two very pleasant well mannered and professional guides. Can't say enough about them. Safety was first the entire time yet this didn't spoil fun or flights. We never were rushed. They would cajoal you to try what your spouse did. "r u going upside down like your wife?". What could I say to save face?
Recommend morning flights as the heat in valley just now would be a little uncomfortable in afternoon. Try it! Step out and live a little. We are only here once and we should make each day exciting and fun.
Ps you will sleep like a baby that night knowing you still can compete with your spouse and look great in your teens eyes! Go zipping

“One small thing we didnt like but If money was no object we would go back.”
Reviewed 21 July 2011

Zip lines are a short drive about 6 km/so off the main highway. Part of the 6km is not paved but fairly well taken care of and not too rough. The zip lines are situated in a gorgeous canyon. All the lines are visible from a public viewing area. The lines are really high and thrilling. Our group thoughly enjoyed them. The staff are all very safety oriented and each person is double clipped in.The staff were all very pleasant except for one. There is an upside down zip that is fabulous.There are 6 lines in all and each and every one of them is spectacular! There are fire exstinguishers in multi locations through out the area and I thought about what they would really accomplish if there was a forest fire,probobly nothing but at least the effort is made. There is a puzzle area off to the side that seems babyish at first, until you try them! There is a picnic table or two if you bring your lunch.There are no real food/beverage services so you need to bring your own. There is a small snack shelf available but thats it. The washrooms are outdoor porta potties, keeping in mind the ziplines are 6K from the road so no municipal services are available. There is ample parking.
All in all we enjoyed this attraction very much. If you are expecting a attraction that feels like it is in the city and has all the ammenities this is not the place. We liked the atmosphere and how it felt to be there in general. It is expensive and for our family a one time event, but like I said if money was no object we would definately go back.
ONE small thing we didnt like- the young lady at the reception desk. Christine. She needs to brush up just a tad on how to talk to the paying customers. She is very blunt.
Tip for Christine- dont assume because we have teenagers they will be "goofing off "(on site) and that they need "babysitting" (on phone). It is insulting.
If you have a chance and can afford it try this attraction it is well worth the money!

“An awesome zipline and the highest in north America”
Reviewed 23 June 2011

This was not only an adventure we will never forget, it was a well spent afternoon (approximately two and a half hours) and the highlight of our trip to Okanagan. The staff ensured our safety at all times and kept us entertained before and after each of the six (6) zipline flights. The views while crossing the canyon are impressive. To guarantee your flight be sure to book before going.

“Good fun for all ages”
Reviewed 17 June 2011

I (21) went with my mom and sister-in-law to-be, on opening day, and we all felt very safe. It's a gorgeous region and the view really is increadible from all the lines. We had lots of fun all together. The guides, Josh and Mack were very friendly and informative about all the local fauna and native history.

Although they boast to be the highest in north america I don't buy it having been to the lines at Grouse Mountain in Vancouver, we were also a little dissapointed their 7th Line was still under construction so we had to do a shorter one twice.

They still have a few kinks to work out but I recommend it for anyone who's never been zip lining and is interested in trying it. I also recommend bringing a snack, there is a bit of walking between lines is makes for a good workout. All in all it makes for a fun day for all ages.
