  • Been here 3 times and absolutely enjoyed it each and every time. Staff has always been friendly and every time I yelled "STAFF" someone was always there to provide instructions on how to clear the obstacle I was stuck on. I did all courses except the first one to save time. You get 3 hours so plan your timing accordingly, you have to get on the last trail before timer expires. Cons: - Gloves, really should provide better gloves. If possible bring your own. For first timers: - Rent a locker and take plenty of water if you plan on doing all the trails. A quick water and bathroom break is needed between trails.
  • This event was a birthday gift for my best friend. I got a group of 8 ppl to join me and we had a blast. the zip line was the best . the obstacle course was carazy!! they start at a more simple one till you get to the more challenging one , if you dare and I did.. it was an adrenaline rush that i will definitely be repeating. I can finally say I am not afraid of heights.
  • I wish that there were those clip switchers at the end of each obstacle too. There was a moment when I needed help and my friend could have "saved me" but he already clicked onto the middle part around the tree and could not go back to offer help. I had to cut my journey short and missed out on the last few obstacles. The gloves do not provide enough support. There needs to be protection around all five fingers. I understand that you have a waiver, but when business is successful, I think you should re-invest in peoples' safety. Or, those of you who are aiming to go sometime, definitely bring your own gloves w/ traction/friction control. (need a good grip) Also, people should be warned that slipping while harnessed can lead to internal bleeding and bruising, but also note that this is not necessarily life threatening. The "STAFF" call I think is fairly efficient. They do a good job at helping those in need. Overall, I had an excellent time with my buddies and had a fun and quite a bit of a challenge. I would definitely like to come back again. Are you open all seasons? Or select times of the year? ______________________________________________ When we arrived, we parked in the first lot we saw, but we later realized there's another lot closer to the registration office. I do, however, like that as we walked up the trail to the park we were brought into a wonderland of obstacles. It enhanced the excitement factor. I like how there's one main station which branches off into several obstacle courses. And, two methods of getting up there. (you'll see when you go, unless there are spoiler pics around). The water fountain was cool too, there is a bottle refilling station. Bathrooms were clean. Lockers are avail. for an additional $3 for anyone who needs to put their belongings away. They aren't THAT big, but you can fit a small backpack, water bottle, glasses, or whatever else you may have loose on you, except for the key. Keep that in a safe place! They give you a thirty minute training session, which is pretty good. The time on your ticket is when you can no longer go up the main pad to any of the other obstacles. So, it's best to use your time wisely. Our group did a total of three pathways; 1 yellow, 1 green, & 1 blue. There's also a black section which is deadly from the looks of it, but I'm sure is fun if you have the cahonas and balance, and strength to do it. I STRONGLY recommend you drink water (at least 10 fl oz) between each round of obstacles. My watch fell off during the obstacles, and one of the Staff found it. But my glasses stayed on and I recommend wearing some for eye protection as you glide through the air/trees. It prevents any debris or pollen from attacking your eyes. The paths after landing aren't always marked, so use your better judgement. There's a picnic area which is good for large or small groups. Be careful; I recommend wearing long sleeves (pants/socks/shirts/full-fingered gloves) to avoid getting far worse battle wounds. Best of luck! And, have fun exploring your skills and fears!
  • This place was overall a great experience. The trails were very exciting and thrilling. Once it gets dark they set up lights on the trails making it very cool looking. The reason I gave this place a 4 star rating is because a 8 year old got stuck on one of the zip lines and we called for staff for around 15 minutes and nobody came. There were staff about 40 feet away. Finally the staff got there. So the recap, this place is a must go for adventure seekers. Staff was the only problem for us.
  • Sent my daughter and son-in-law and son and daughter-in-law last week. They had a blast. Despite being very tired the next day, all four of them said they felt very safe throughout their stay. The staff was very helpful and friendly. They really enjoyed themselves and would definitely like to go again!
