Customer Reviews

Our abseiling experience was great! The staff were extremely fun and helpful and helped ease our fears and we had a great time. View from the top was amazing and the glide down even more thrilling. - Amira Zeyada

It was our first time ever abseiling and we had a wonderful experience! The crew was super friendly and knowledgeable. Reserving our abseil was also a breeze since they're super quick to respond and send you specific instructions. Definitely recommend using this company! - Lucy Pinto

It was awesome! Although the hike back took a bit longer than anticipated, but I had the best time! So cool that you are doing it! - Miloni Gandhi

Fantstic experience for my partner and I. Staff were great. Had a good sense of humour. The experience was incredible along with the views. Having the ability to take your own time allowed a relaxed experience. - Alex Long(pd less 10% discount by CC full)

Super fun, super safe( attentive skilled facilitators). I wish I could have abseiled longer than 5 or so minutes! And some instruction when free hanging would have been helpful ;) A little pricey...but I would do it again. An experience I will not likely soon forget. Thanks again, Gail USA - Gail Freedman
