Five family members with wildly diverse cycling experience enjoyed this concession. You park outside the park borders and are bused in. After being fitted for your bikes, your ride is interspersed by some natural waterslide fun. Fun for the adventurous and the not-so. Highly recommended....More

Most of the reviews are pretty spot on. The big fat tire bikes provide good stability. The very first portion is pretty strenuous and all but very fit riders will need to walk their bikes to the top - not the end of the world...More

We had two young girls, both 8. And we had a great time biking and playing in the waterfalls. I was worried the biking would be too difficult. The guides were great and super positive!

This was a very fun tour. It started out with a lot of short biking experiences and some longer hikes to the water falls. The hikes were downhill and strenuous coming back up. The guides allowed ample time at each waterfall to play and they...More
