My girlfriend bought a zipline trip for her grandson. They each did it together. They enjoyed themselves very much. I would recommend this activity.

Thanks to the folks at Explore Brown County for a wonderful time. We had the pleasure of zipping with Guides Daron and Janelle and they were awesome. Amazing zips, great heights, incredible memories. We will definitely be back to do Zips 9 & 10 (when they open for the full season). We even had a chance to meet Gary (Owner)... More

We had a blast on the atv tour today. Neal was awesome and did a great job showing us the ropes and was an overall fun and friendly guide. The ride was much better than anticipated with a good mix of straightaways to ride full throttle and also off road terrain. We definitely would recommend to others!

Neal was our guide and he made the afternoon comical and comfortable. He spent the first 20-30 minutes going over rules and general instructions on how to operate the 4 wheeler.

We had a GREAT zip line experience with 6 family members age 16 to 74 zipping and laughing the whole time. The staff was great getting us a reservation for our group on a gorgeous autumn day and they took away any fear the first timers may have had and replaced it with confidence and fun.

Don't leave mom at home on this one! If your into paintball and zip lines , they certainly have you covered! But if your into atv rides, fishing, camping, and just enjoying a book outside this is the place!
