Call our office at 800-251-4800 or visit our Zipline Calendar for availability.
Will there be photos taken?
During our busy season photos are taken, but we do guarentee that they are taken on every tour.
What time should I arrive for my trip?
- Our check-in time is the trip time. However, if you want to arrive 10-15 minutes early that is fine. We do not recommend that you arrive any earlier than 15 minutes prior to your trip time. It is always better to be early that late, due to the fact that we do not delay our tours.
- For example, if you purchased tickets for a 12:30 tour you can arrive between 12:15 and 12:30. If you arrive more than 10 minutes late, you will have missed your tour and all payments will be forfeited.
Do you need previous experience?
- No. Two guides are on each tour that will send and receive the guests on each zipline.
Are reservations required?
- Reservations are highly recommended, because we fill up quickly and if you do not make a reservation you will not be guaranteed a spot.
