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 booked our zipline adventure several weeks in advance after viewing Tripadvisor. Our family arrived on a Princess cruise ship. We walked through the city's shopping area first (which was great), then took a taxi to Zipline by the Reversing Rapids. The taxi ride was...More

After much hesitation and apprehension we ziplined with Saint John Adventure Ziplines today. Our experience could not have been more positive. Terry and his crew, aside from being completely professional, are personable and exude confidence. The equipment is first rate. The motto is, "safety first,...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!

What a fantastic adventure! We traveled to Saint John via cruise ship. None of the excursions offered by the cruise line appealed to our family. Our kids, ages 8 and 10, wanted to do something "fun." Well, they got it! Ask them now what the...More
