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.

We had a lot of fun on this 5 zipline course that was very high. The powerplant across the river made it less scenic than we expected, however. You can't really experience reversing falls switch directions unless you wait around for the tide to change...More

We had a fantastic time zip lining in Saint John. Our guides Amanda and Jeremy were terrific! It's a family run business and when we were done with the tour we felt like we were part of their family. Try it! You won't be disappointed!
