It was a bit tricky to find on GPS as it takes you to the owners house which is about 100 feet before the turnoff which you will find on the right. As everyone said, just a port-a-potty but it was clean. The 4 staff members working were very pleasant and made it a lot of fun for my 6... More

I bought a groupon for Anchors Above on a whim. My boyfriend and I had never been ziplining so I figured it would be an interesting adventure. I called the morning of for a reservation, but I don't think a reservation is necessary unless you are going as a pretty big group. When we showed up, we just waited in... More

Nice location. Path to the top could use some work. Has potential, but seems busy as it is. My main concern was only one strap to cable.. no additional straps.

A great day driving out to the site. Don't let the groupon link direct you. It took us to tatamagouche. An easy walk to the first line. Nice and high great view. 2 line was steeper not so long but much faster. Both were fun. Worth the drive. A great day

Our family made a stop at Anchor's zipline on our way to Truro. We've ziplined on other vacations and my sons (11 and 14) were keen to do it again. This is a really bare boned operation, a contrast to other places we've been where there's a big production with multiple guides, groups of around 15, lots of time spent... More

Two adults and six kids zip lined today and had a blast! Well worth the Groupon deal! No frills. Just zip lining fun after a short 5-6 minute walk to the first platform. Two different lines to get to the bottom.

I wasn't able to go before my groupons expired so I gave them to family who took my daughters. They all had so much fun and even got to go back up for a second ride! They loved it!

Bought a nCrowd voucher ($49 for four people to zipline). Weight restrictions say 50lbs minimum and 300lb maximum. Called to make a reservation; the person answering the phone just said "okay"...didn't get any contact information, not even a name, just hung up without so much as a thank you. When we got there, the "operator" was already up the mountain... More

All it takes is "Hi" "Thanks for coming" "Are you excited?" "Have you done this before?" Any one of those statements would have made our experience a lot better. When the operator does speak, he mumbles so you have to get him to repeat himself. I think he may just be tired of doing this but I would fear for... More

Have been a few times. GPS is wonky and will not get you here. I ended up at a church which was a ways away from their actual location. Its quite a little hike to get to the longest of the two lines but well worth the trip. The longer line provides a fantastic mountain view and the scenery is... More
