We really wanted to do atv adventure. We saw there were a discount for the zipline so we called to get a discount on the atv and the lady was not helpful one she said there was no discount on the atv and that we could NOT switch half way through.So, we were going to not go due to the price. I looked again and there was a 25% discount and so we bought two separate atvs. But when we got down to the atvs our guide asked if any of the couples would need to switch half way through. With the discount we did not say anything. But we would have been very upset if it wasnt for the discount. Kelby was wonderful and friendly. It was not a slow and boring ride it was a lot of fun, fast, and going over rocks and everyone was so muddy when we left. We were all laughing So bring a change of clothes if its wet out. When we come back to Branson this is on our list as long as its not to expensive. The only suggestion I would have is that they should buy go pros to rent around your head and video tape the fun. An easy money maker they could just send you the video or copy it on a cd.

We did a zipline tour through the trees. The guys who guided us (Kelby & Dante) did a great job and made it fun for us, while being conscious of safety.

This was an amazing experience. I was terrified and shaking like a leaf. The guide "Missy" was perfect. She was very sympathetic and encouraging. She exhibited just the right amount of compassion, encouragement and information about the ride to be able to help me decide to go ahead and take the ride. I am forever grateful as now , I am a zipline rider. Thank you Missy. And I can say the same for "Sarah" the cashier at the desk. Thank you girls, You are the best. I will be bringing all of my children and grandchildren to share the experience again and again. I Definitely highly recommend this adventure!!!

We had a GREAT time!!! Our Guide was Kelby, who was really great to work with. It was exciding and thrilling. You drive your own ATV in the woods on the grounds of The Shepard of the Hills. We went in mid-November. It most be beautiful in the summer and especially fall. If you love adventure, you will love this. I did all the driving, while my wife was a rider and she had as much fun riding as I did driving. We will absolutely be being this again!
