Overview

Reversing Falls Zip Line Tour. Saint John Adventures Inc. is pleased to offer Saint John’s only Zip Line Tour at Fallsview Park, right beside the World Famous Reversing Rapids. We offer amazing views of the Falls from our six towers and thrills galore on our five zip lines. The last leg of our lines, a dual line so you can race with your buddy to the finish, zips over water rushing along side of the Falls and landing on False Island.Come and watch the Bay of Fundy and St. John River struggle for supremacy. The powerful tides push the river backwards twice a day and the rushing St. John River gives back all it’s got twice a day.Seals, seagulls, cormorants and much more call this area home. Some very large striped bass are caught off the point and kayakers welcome the rushing white water.

Had a great time. This is not a lengthy course, but very professionally run and maintained. The site is very interesting- nature, history and industry, all visible in one spot. The views were truly amazing from each stand. We saw a number of harbour seals....More

Thanks for pointing out we have a great view of the Falls. Can you please let us know the date that you did our tour so we investigate why your experience wasn't phenomenal? Thanks, Terry.

We booked this adventure through the cruise line we traveled with (Norwegian), and we are so glad we did! The staff was great, and very diligent about safety! There is a tower, about 75 ft high, you must climb to begin "zipping." After that, there...More

This was a fun way to end our Canada adventure. I was a bit disappointed that the zip was not "over" the St.John but on the side of it. The first two runs were short but the last two were longer and more fun. I...More
