The guys made this a lot of fun even though it was very scary. My sons did two jumps and I did the butt slide. Awesome!

The Canyon Swing is over priced. Get one swing for the price it would be better if you can get 2 or three one is just a rip off

Hi there! Check-in is 15 minutes before the trip time, and you should allow 2.5 hours for the whole trip. So if you booked the 4.30pm trip; check in will be 4.15pm and you would be back in town around 7pm. Hope this helps!
