We were taking a Spring Break trip to The Gorge. Three generations of “girls” were first-time zipliners with some anxiety. Our guides, Daniel and Nick, gave us an unforgettable (and safe) experience with their instructions, patience, and celebrity-tree jokes! Thanks to all. Very professional organization!

Had soooo much fun. Zack and Nick made this experience so enjoyable with their young attitudes and carefree but professional touch! I always felt secure that they knew what they were doing. Can't wait to return in the fall

With a fully booked group, plan on being on the zip course for 3 hrs, and plan for 3.5 - 4 hours door to door. If you happen to be with a smaller group the trip can run more quickly.
