This was amazing!! Book!!! Expect some waiting time but not too much. I took my two boys ages 10 and 13 they loved it!!!

It was well worth the 2.5 hour wait. If you don't have much time, get the skip the line tickets.

Loved it! Everyone in our party loved as well. We recommend sitting in the front of the boat!

It was a great experience and all family enjoy the Zipline. Definitely, we will do it again!

I found it stressful the further up the line I got, but after the start it was fantastic.
