There were eleven zip lines, one suspension bridge and three 60 foot rappelling events to be conquered. Our guides, Orion and Ziff, were fun, knowledgeable and safety conscious. There were 7 people in our group and the entire adventure took over 4 hours to complete.

With a fully booked group, plan on being on the zip course for 3 hrs, and plan for 3.5 - 4 hours door to door. If you happen to be with a smaller group the trip can run more quickly.
