Great afternoon zip lining with Jack and Roger. They were professional, fun and kind (Rainbow and Unicorn stickers all around!) The setting is gorgeous and the lines are a blast. If you have the opportunity - do this tour.

Our family did both the zip line and obstacle course adventures (on two different days). Both were fabulous. The guides were awesome (we were lucky enough to have Greta for both adventures). We can't wait to return next year.
