We bought a package that included First Flyer and TROTTY BIKES. The zip line was so much fun- 50 mph until you hit the spring at the end. Seriously, the trotty bikes were the most fun of the day. I wish I could ride one every single day.

This experiences is included in the Wengen/Grindelwald ski pass and those based in Wengen its quite a trek to reach it and can take all morning. We reached the First Flyer by about 1pm and its was closed - no notice or mention of a reason! This was half term, peak season, no wind, clear sunshine and all the piste... More

Great ride down the mountain on a zip wire, included in the ski pass. You sit down so no hanging from the wire!!

Comming to First is like going to Disneyland :):):) you have so many things to have fun, that you cannot just go up once . This was one of the adventures we made together ( max. 4 persons ), but, you have to weight at least 35 Kgs and not more than 125 Kgs. Lot of Fun :):):)

Our family always enjoys taking the track from Grindelwald up to First. Buses from the main train station leave every 10 minutes and drop you right in front of the First gondola station (ask at information/ticket desk at train station - they can give you specific bus number as I've forgotten it). Purchase a combo package to get the most... More

As zip lines go, this one is pretty boring. I am used to networks of connected platforms and launch pads. It is just one stretch of cable with a rapid deceleration below. I highly recommend that if you want to do this you should purchase the mountain pass with all three rentals in one discounted price. If you do, the... More

So I have been on zip-lines a few times before and each time it was so much fun but this one is awesome simply due to it's length and the amazing views and the fact that you get to do it alongside your friends or family...so you can race each other. The zip line is 800 meters (which is about... More

Me, my wife, and two Friends booked tickets for this ride at the Tourist Info at Interlaken. When we eventually got to the top of First and saw the Zip lines one of them backed out !!! Fortunately another pal stepped up and all 4 of us went down the wires together. The guy got us all strapped in and... More

It is absolutely interesting to choose flier down from First station. The crew helps to secure the seat belt and ensure safety. I feel safe here. The view on my way down is awesome. I have seen the beautiful hills with grass, cows, and far mountain-view is amazing. The only drawback is the waiting time in the afternoon is around... More

We LOVED First Flyer zipline. So much fun; you HAVE to do it! When the door opens at the top your stomach flips but then it's just an adrenaline rush with AMAZING scenery. We did the Cliff Walk first. Also great! We got the Trotti scooters down from Bort to Grindelwald; again so much fun! It cost us CHF 80... More
