My husband and I visited today and had so much fun! Our guide was so welcoming and friendly. The sky wire was exhilarating and the quad biking was very fun! Would definitely return.

Friendly staff and good vibes. Unhurried and relaxed atmosphere. The Skywire was a real adrenalin rush. Initially hesitant to do it (fear of heights) but encouraged to do so by the staff I did it and was glad I did. Highly recommended.

We wanted to do the skywire but took the combo option and rode the quad bikes as well which was great. We had a short tuition session and practice before we set off and really enjoyed it.

No. You can choose any activity. If you just want to do the Skywire, come on out.
