Visiting the area from Ontario we had an awesome day at TimberTop! Beautiful location in a wooded area overlooking Dominion beach and the Saint John river. Very peaceful setting among the trees. The location is great because even when it is foggy in the city it is usually sunny there.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, which was the complete opposite of my experience at a similar venue in Moncton a few years back. There the staff seemed to be only looking for reasons to kick you off of the course (which happened to my son btw) when we were there. At TimberTop I heard only words of encouragement from the staff to the customers. Ahead of us on one of the courses were a boy and girl of around 10 years of age. They seemed hesitant on some of the obstacles but a staff member was right with them pumping up their confidence and assisting them to complete the course.
The courses include one for little kids, two easy, two intermediate and two more difficult courses. Really something for everyone. As the courses get more difficult you tend to be positioned higher in the trees. Although a little nervous about heights, I was not the least bit concerned as you are mostly concentrating on completing each obstacle and don't even notice how high you are.
Some really cool obstacles up in the trees including zip lines, walking on primary school chairs, finger and toe holds on swinging boards, navigating around buoys and riding a skate board between trees just to name a few. Great imagination went into designing the courses.
Safety is not a concern at all as they use a "smart" clip system which only enables you to unlock one clip at a time so that you are always connected. Staff also set up your safety harness for you so that you know that it is set up properly. No one gets to start the course unless you have attended and successfully completed a training session course which is instructed by a staff member.
Being in my late 50s I was able to complete four of the courses in order (both green and blue) before I decided to hang it up and let the 20 year olds in my group continue on. They were able to continue and complete the first black diamond but decided to stop part way into the double black diamond course.
We all vow to come back real soon and show the courses who is boss!
Thank you so much for the kind words! We can't wait to have you all back to tackle that Double Black Diamond!
We went here for my brothers birthday and I was a little hesitant at first because he rock climbs and hits the gym almost every day. For a homebody I must say I did almost all the challenges and didn't feel crazy exhausted. It was a lot of fun and would highly recommend it to anyone really the staff were friendly and prompt when assistance was needed. They were also watching to make sure you were ok at all times which made me feel a lot better considering I did feel nervous at first. I HIGHLY recommend coming here and challenging yourself. It's lots of fun and a great work out.
Thank you for the kind words Angel!
Quality of the gear and course itself is top notch! The staff were keen and very helpful. Both male instructors were super with the kids who were age 6 and 8. The price for the Little Whiskers course is reasonable for adults and was able to complete within the estimated timeframe. Overall, it was a great adventure & we can’t wait to go back to try out the ‘big kids’ course next!
Thanks so much for your review! Glad you had a great adventure and we look forward to your next visit doing the "big kids" course!
This is our second visit to TimberTop. We love coming here. The staff is very professional and friendly. Safety is clearly job #1 as there is a well presented orientation. The facility is beautiful and the courses are fun and challenging. Our party was amazed how 3 hours flies by. This is a ton of fun for all ages and abilities. Definitely worth the visit
Thank you so must for all the amazing feedback! We are so glad that you decided to come back for a second and hope to see you for a third! Safety is definitely #1 priority at our park and are happy that it has been recognized. Time flies when you're having fun, can't wait to see you back at our park:)
We had the best day at Timber Top! The Staff is excellent, knowledgeable, friendly and someone is always around to help or give advice.
They have the best harness/safety system!
The trails offer easy and fun challenges everyone can do! We did a few of the more challenging trails and they were so much fun! We ended with the Flying Squirrel and the big zip line!
Can’t wait to go back!!
So glad you had an awesome day visiting us in the trees! Thanks for your great review of us. Can't wait to see you back!
Well organized, great equipment and great staff.
Felt very safe the whole time and did not worry about the 8 year olds. We had an introduction to the equipment on a trial course and then staff helped us to our first course. We did the first green course, one kid was a little short and struggled, and didn’t want to continue on the big course. The other kid completed both green courses, one blue and the flying squirrel. We took them to the lower level yellow courses to finish off their day.
Thank you so much for the amazing review! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit to TimberTop and cannot wait for your next!
