This was such a fun tour! The forest we were in was absolutely beautiful, and I would’ve been happy just hiking through it. But we got to ZIPLINE through it, and walk over swinging bridges high up in the air in between. Our guides were...More

This experience is awesome. Dressed warmly (Queens Birthday Weekend) - with extra layers available from RCT at no charge, we jumped into a van and were transported 10 mins down the road to a little hidden sanctuary. Our guides, Pip and Shannon were very professional...More

Scott and Jesse were excellent guides on our zipline adventure - from the check in to the tour itself - one of our party was very scared of heights and they made him feel extremely comfortable. Only praise for the crew. Well worth doing.

Do advance reservations need to be made in early April and how many days ahead?? What kind of clothing should my family wear?

Response from James F | Property representative |
24 hours in advance in April is wise - longer if you arn't flexible with dates. Dress warmly, it will be cool in early April as opposed to cold. Cheers and see you soon!
