We were really looking forward to this combo excursion. A few things to note - this particular trip was supposed to be four hours with our transportation to/from ship. I think we were back in about 3 hours and we had waited about 30 minutes for the bus to take us back. They

Hi Kerry, Thank you for your review. We understand your experience through Emilio Wilson Museum wasn't exactly what you expected. We apologize that you felt rushed, however, this wasn't our intention. As this isn't a guided tour, staff would direct guest to the Museum where they have the opportunity to read about the history of St.Maarten and the Estate. After completing your excursion, it's possible to revisit the Museum to gain more history on our Friendly Island. We understand your frustration that our staff hadn't communicate as much and apologize for this. Our staff is professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the history of their island and how the park operates. Despite the minor let down, we're happy the ride up the mountain was enjoyed by the entire family, and the kids loved the Sentry Hill Zip and Schooner ride! Indeed, the views from the top are absolutely Stunning! Guests get to experience the whole island from a Bird's Eye with vistas of neighboring islands. Glad to see you took tons of pictures while visiting the property, to have as a memory of this one of kind experience in The Caribbean! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us, Hope you give our park a second chance, and this time consider The Big 3 package as it includes The Sentry Hill Zip, Schooner and Flying Dutchman!

I came here as part of my cruise excursion. My thoughts: Skip the schooner (I was backward the whole time and the views are nothing compared to the top); do the zipline (good views); definitely do the Flying Dutchman (even better views). Before you start exploring all the

Hi kdelossantos02, Thank you for visiting our park to experience the Best 360° Views on St.Maarten! We understand the Schooner ride may have been your least favorite ride of the Big 3 package; However, we're happy to hear you loved the warm up on the Sentry Hill Zip and the little burst of adrenaline on The Steepest Zip Line in The World! Depending on business volumes, the Flying Dutchman can have an average waiting time of 1.5 - 2 hours. The Top Deck bar is definitely a great addition, which gives guests a nice hang out spot to enjoy their favorite drink while preparing for the main attraction. The Views at the top of Sentry Hill are indeed absolutely beautiful, and we can't get enough of it! We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us, hope you took tons of photos to have as a memory of this fun experience on St.Maarten!

Dear Sisterfunfunfun, Thank you for the review! We're happy to hear you enjoyed the tranquil ride up the mountain on the Sky Explorer and was able to experience the spectacular 360° Views from the top of Sentry Hill. At Rockland Estate we offer an adventure for everyone! From the thrills of the steepest zip line in the world to a peaceful ride on a chair lift. Thank you for the recommendation! We hope you visit us again soon!

Transfer from the pier was hectic - 3 ships in port, 2 with organized tours (not our ship though). Went to cab stand as directed, they sent us to the white tent, where they sent us back to the cab stand. First 3 employees there did not understand our transfer, but they finally
