Neal was our guide and he made the afternoon comical and comfortable. He spent the first 20-30 minutes going over rules and general instructions on how to operate the 4 wheeler. He kept things light hearted and personable. The ride was about an hour and a half and it exceeded our expectations. We went through the woods, up and down... More

A great time! I loved the views and the property! The guides were always professional and the experience was personalized for us. I never once felt unsafe or uneasy, as they made sure to reassure us every step of the way. They took care of everything and they obviously love their jobs, and helping people have a great time.

We had a GREAT zip line experience with 6 family members age 16 to 74 zipping and laughing the whole time. The staff was great getting us a reservation for our group on a gorgeous autumn day and they took away any fear the first timers may have had and replaced it with confidence and fun.

Don't leave mom at home on this one! If your into paintball and zip lines , they certainly have you covered! But if your into atv rides, fishing, camping, and just enjoying a book outside this is the place!

We had a great time today on the buggy tour with guide Gary! We used to have a jeep that we took 4wheeling on the weekends and were just hoping to get back out in the woods for the day, but didn't expect much more than a leisurely drive through the woods. We were pleasantly surprised at how much fun... More

We had such a fun time celebrating my son's 14th bday with 3 hours of paintball!! Our ref, Billy, was AWESOME and had a ton of fun games for the boys!! My son even ended up in a paintball dress running for his life 😂. Would highly recommend for groups of teenagers! So much fun!!
