One of the best zipline trips we've ever done! It was real fun, even though we took the simple 1-2hrs trip (Take the via Ferrata trip if you can - we did not know to ask for it specifically and it just looks different than other zipline trips). The guides (Derrick and Dillen) made the whole difference. They allowed us to have fun while being safe. They were professionals, took good care of all level of paricipants. They were nice people and really amusing.

We had a great white water experience through Brown’s Canyon with our guide Randy! He was very experienced on the waters and always kept us informed on what was yet to come. Randy was very knowledgeable and kept us quite entertained. Would highly recommend a trip with Randy whether it’s your first trip or you are looking for a more advanced trip.

What an amazing adventure!!! From the moment we arrived to the second we were done the energy was high and the excitement even higher!!! Randy our team lead kept us laughing but was well informed! He was super experienced and it showed! We maneuvered around the rapids smoothly and enjoyed the dips greatly! I really enjoyed the engaging conversation and genuine facts he shared along the ride. The twists and turns were so quick and thrilling and I absolutely loved the views down the River! This was such a great experience! I highly recommend!!!!

My first ever whitewater rafting trip was awesome! The level 3 was a great introduction and it made me want to try a 4 or 5 soon. Randy was our guide and he was incredible! He has been a guide for nearly 20 years and it was evident. His instructions were very clear and easy to follow. I felt very safe in his hands and had a blast going down the river!
