The zipline was a nice experience however for the price, it could have lasted longer than 45 seconds.

We're up in our 60's and this was our first time to try a zip line. After watching several different zip line rides we decided on this one and we're glad we did. We felt that we would feel more secured in this one then some of the other ones. If you want to try a zip line we recommend you try this one first. Great view of lake and surrounding area. Only drawback is it is over so fast. I guess that's why they call it a ZIP line.

Had a blast! Wasn't aware you go backwards across the lake...but you do! After you are taken backward across the lake and are looking at the place you just came are zipped back to the starting point. Wasn't scary like I would think regular zip lines are because you are sitting in a seat the entire time.

Nice workers. Great area. Awesome experience for my kids. But it priced out to $1/second. Way too expensive for what it is.
