“Amazing experience loved it”

Apache Eagle Ziprider
Reviewed 10 May 2017 via mobile

Staff are great! It was very cold at top and staff asked if I had jacket, I didn't, asked if I could buy one, they don't sell them. So don't forget to bring light jacket. The gentleman at check in offered me his own personal pull over for the ride. Couldn't believe it- amazing customer service! I've done other zip lines this was so Thrilling, worth the price. Views are breathtaking!!

Wyn and Fern were the most amazing guides. Awesome views. Price is good since you do 3 zips. We even got a history lesson of the surrounding area!

This was a great experience, even if you have never been on a zipline before. The views are amazing. Overall it is just as advertised. It does take a while to get through the whole process so plan on spending 2-3 hours there. The guides were friendly and we had a blast. The only thing that was different was that the video (you can watch it on their site and will have to watch again before you suit up) makes it sound like you can stop on the line and enjoy the view however, the long zip would be the only opportunity to do that and the guides specifically tell you not to slow down because you could get stuck. Would have been nice to stop and look around or at least slow down to see everything. Make sure you have some eye wear on (goggles or sunglasses) and dress warm.

This was a fun experience overall and I would recommend it to anyone traveling in the area that is not in a hurry. Employees were friendly and helpful and views were spectacular.

I would suggest pre-planning to make the trip a little more enjoyable. You can watch the training video online but it can be difficult to find, however, it will save you time.

The negative about this ride is that it was disorganized as others have stated. Our group of 4 arrived at 0915 for our 1000 reservation. We were asked to come back later as we were early. We went back to the check-in desk around 0940 only to find out that 12 people had checked in before us and were already moving forward. Ok, no big deal, but then the gear hut was helter skelter with not much organization. We did managed to get our gear and then got in the training line only to be delayed again. Completed the training and were on our way to the gondola when we found out that 6 people that had 1000 reservations had just arrived at 1030 and we would have to wait for them. Really? What was advertised as a 1.5 hour experience turned into a 3 hour experience. Not that big of a deal, however, we did have plans back in Ruidoso that we were delayed for.

Bottom line, fun activity to do but be prepared for a potential delay.

Was a little disappointed in the amount of staff working. Told it would take total of 90 min but ended up being 3+ hours. Was it work it? Have to say yes. Was told it is the highest zip line in the world and longest in the US. Gear was in good condition, our staff guide were informed and skilled. Was a crazy ride for an older fellow but I would do it again.
