  • Course is pretty awesome. Only thing is that if u have a child right at the height limit, it is quite a stretch for them! You'll see what I mean. Great time in the trees though! Little pricey I though...  more »

  • Awesome and extreme adventure!!! I've seen a few negative reviews angry complaining their team team was too strict about violating the clip rules (they have 2 simple rules: always be clipped in, and clip in different directions so you can't unclip them both on accident.) Look, at times you're a hundred feet up in these trees on the course—YOU WANT TO BE CLIPPED IN. PROMISE! This course is self guided (which was awesome—I appreciate having the ability to take charge of my own experience) but I'd be worried if flagstaff extreme cared less—they don't want you to die, and I personally appreciate that. Follow 2 simple rules and if you can't—you probably shouldn't a hundred feet in the air on this course—for your own good. Just saying. ANYWAY- the course was amazing. My boyfriend made it through the black course and I completed the red! We had a great experience, staff were always available for questions and tips, and when one of us almost got stuck, they were quickly halfway up the tree to rescue us before we made it across. This place is a rare adventure you can still take into your own hands, which is awesome- but with great power comes great responsibility...for yourself! Just take your time and follow the 2 simple rules and you'll have a great time. Our day here was an amazing time and highly recommended! It gave me confidence in my ability to focus and take on a challenge. We will be back ✨
  • First of all, the girls at the desk were extremely rude. They gave us the harnesses and said "now go wait outside for someone to come help put them on". After 20 mins no one showed up, so I went back in to which they stated "yeah, he's coming". The demonstration was slowed down and limited secondary to the time and attention that was given to a few special needs children in the group, which was fine, but maybe these children should have had their own personal guide. We literally waited in the demo area for 30 mins before the instructor said "oh sorry, thought you all had already left, go ahead and go". Mind you, he did not watch ANYONE but the special needs children perform any of the demo courses to see if they were being performed correctly. He was completely hands on with the other children, which again was great, but such consideration was not paid to the other individuals in the group. I had 3 children who went through the course for which I paid $174, and after the first course, one of them was grounded because of the whole clip situation, which probably could have been avoided had the demonstration been up to par. The guide yelled at my son and told him "that's it, you're done"! My son was totally embarrassed and had to sit and watch his brother and sister finish the courses. I completely understand safety but occasional warnings from the guides should be in place. They could easily say "everyone, don't forget your clips, remember your clips always" every now and again as a gentle reminder, these are kids and they sometimes need guidance, but I guess it doesn't matter as you still got to keep my money. Anyway, I was very disappointed to say the least.
  • Great course that will challenge even the fittest people. Each stage is higher and harder than the next. Our group had only 2 out of 8 finish the final stage. Great for groups, families, team building, etc. Definitely a must for anyone planning to be in the area.
  • Fun and CHALLENGING place but very expensive. Did it with my cousin and my dad, and we completed the black course but my dad and I were very, very sore afterwards. The black course is exceptionally difficult if you're short or not in the best of the shape (I'm 5 foot 2 and anemic) but you leave with dignity. Definitely bring water. The adventure course is worth the money for the challenge and the experience of ziplining through the trees. Don't bother buying the gloves they'll try to sell you either; you don't need them. They charge $3 for a bottle of cold water; I'd recommend using their perfectly good hose of ice cold groundwater around the back if you're not picky. The guides are nice if a little snappy. The 'free' t-shirt for completing the black course is actually $19, so ... be forewarned.
  • It's alright. Definitely not worth the money. Especially since they kick you off the entire course for the day after making one mistake which happened to the person next to me on the first course. I was kicked off the third course with no warning, because of an inconveniently placed clip. Horrible service after trying to reason with the staff, they acted like control freaks and are extremely snappy.

Where to stay in Flagstaff

Flagstaff's diverse assortment of hotels and motels provides all the amenities you need to relax after a long day adventuring. The city is home to a number of luxury bed and breakfasts complete with jetted tubs and fireplaces. Budget-friendly bed and breakfasts have fewer facilities and are often farther out of town, but boast plenty of charm and character. If you like the outdoors, take advantage of the city's mountain surroundings and pitch a tent at a campground in nearby Kaibab National Forest.
