I Always try to do something outside my comfort zone every trip to Branson. Some years, yes, some years no. This was a “Yes” year. Before we left home, I try to do my research about what I might want to do. This looked “the safest “. Sit you in a duel seater, pull you Backwards across Lake Taneycomo , then LET YOU GO! According to attendants you come back going about 40 mph. Was scared, but would consider doing it Again! A Definite Must Try!

I was in Branson for a week with my Aunt. She will be turning 65 soon and decided she just had to zip line!! This is a great way for someone to try ziplining without all the climbing & hiking! She loved it😁

"Not What I Expected"

From the photos I saw before I went, it appeared to be a nice ride across the river, not a true zip line. The guy working the zip line told us to meet him downstairs, which we did and we realized that's not what he meant and we had to walk back up to the platform. He did not explain anything to us, just bucked us in with one strap across our waste. The seat slants forward and your butt can barely fit in it. They send you across backwards and once you are all the way on a backward slant, they click you in. This is where I was certain that I was going to fall out into the river. There is only one place to hold onto in the middle, but both people have to hold onto the same spot. Then, when you finally get across, they slam on the breaks so you don't crash into the building. I would hate to see what would happen if the brakes failed. There really was no communication with the employee. When I got off, I told him that it needed to be more secure (like if they had a bar that came down over your head like on a roller coaster). Safety first! (We had an all day pass with that and the hot air balloon, but needless to say, I was not getting back on the zip line).

I liked it although like others have said, over very quickly. Felt quite secure with 2 seat belts, so no worries there. Really nice view but was a bit on the expensive side considering how short the ride was. Do not regret spending the money on it.

"Way over priced!!!!"

Reviewed August 24, 2019
This is a fun ride, but WAY overpriced!! The ride is super short. It’s an easy ride for all ages, and it’s a great view when you’re up there. The staff was friendly. However, I regret spending that much for a short thrill. I won’t go back unless they reduce the price or offer a multi-ride price.
