The staff at The Gorge was amazing. They told us all about what zip lining would be like then they helped us get our gear on. Our group was small probably 7 or 8 total which I really liked. Both guys doing our tour made it so fun. They were patient and were understanding of the few of us who... More

They were funny, knowledgeable, engaging and made you feel at ease the entire time. The experience we had was one for the books and we're definitely looking... More

My husband and I had such an incredible time on the zip lines. I was nervous, but after seeing the harnesses and going over the safety equipment, I was feeling better. A quick hug and words of encouragement from our guide, Amy, and I was on my way. I cannot express how exhilarating this experience was. It was like flying... More

It was a great adventure. The staff is top notch and safety is their utmost priority. You will have 11 zip lines, 3 repels and 1 swinging bridge to navigate during your trip and you will love it. It takes roughly 3.5 hours to complete, but you'll wish there was more time when you're done. LV and Tyler were our... More
