Icy Strait was that hidden gem on our Alaskan cruise. What a special place it was. We were so glad that this was one of our stops. The town was so quaint. The people were also so special. If you end up there some day,...More

This was my first zipline and I can't imagine topping it. From meeting people doing the same thing, including a woman who it really was a 'bucket list' item as she had end stage breast cancer, to the jaw dropping scenery, this was an 11...More

I'm sure a lot of people reading this are wondering if the zip rider is scary. My answer is that no, it is not! The ANTICIPATION to ride it is what gets most people. But once those doors open and you are heading down that...More

This is really fun, we had two couples, late 50’s, and all four people wanted to do it again as soon as they finished. Lots of fun - the employees were VERY THOUGHTFUL. Beautiful views. Perhaps a little pricey, but what else are you going...More

My husband and I are both over 70 and loved the zip rider. It is not scary at all. You are taken by bus to the top of a mountain - 1300 ft. You sit in a seat and are harnessed in tightly - you...More

I would recommend late morning or early afternoon. The day we were there the top part of the mountain was shrouded in mist early in the morning, but had burned off by around 10AM, when I rode.
