My husband, son and I really enjoyed these attractions! I would suggest that everyone tries out the bundle at least once! We enjoyed kayaking down the Levisa Fork because the current is calm and not deep in case of any accidents. Zip lining was awesome and had such a beautiful view at each location. Horseback riding was so much fun on the trails with more beautiful scenery! These attractions are great for a day spending time with family, going alone or even for large groups. The staff working each attract were amazing and very patient. It was the first time for all three of us doing each of the attractions, but the staff helped us as needed and made us feel comfortable. They let us take our time, whereas other places make you feel rushed. I can’t compliment them and thank them enough!

Too much fun to be had in one day! My wife and I rented kayaks to float the Levisa fork of the Big Sandy. The Yaks were $20 each. They have 3 or 4 launch times. We went at 11am. If you so desire, you can do a trifecta of Zip, Paddle, and Saddle. We have done zip lining at a different place and didn't need to repeat. I'm allergic to horses, so that was out. Back to paddling - you must start at the Bob Amos park. This is where you sign waivers, pay, and/or confirm reservations and get instructions . A fairly quick process. They also have lockers with locks at no charge. From the park they will shuttle you to the boat ramp behind the Holiday Inn Express. With a swift push, your off. The employees were super. Everyone was very nice and accommodating. They took our kayaks to the water (I did help), and retrieved them at the end. Made sure we had paddles and PFDs. I believe they were expecting us at the end, but just in case, make sure you have their correct phone number handy. The trip ends at the boat ramp behind Texas Roadhouse. The trip down the river was very relaxing. The water was kinda low and we did get stuck one time. No biggie. Very quite and peaceful, even with a little road noise from above. We saw a heron, wood ducks, carp, a sucker, trout looking fish, and a few king fishers. We also saw lots of prominent tires that have embedded themselves in the sandy bottom and a couple of big round pipes that cross the river. We also saw a couple of jon boats doing the fishing thing. Saw one guy hook a nice smallmouth that jumped hook at the last minute. The kayaks were sit on top and were OK. My wife did fine with hers, mainly because her PFD acted as a back cushion. I'm 6'1" and my PFD didn't come down far enough, so I had a little bit of a back ache. Nothing too terrible, but something to plan for next time. With the open design, expect to get wet from water off the paddle. Mostly dribbles. We both hit a small rapid which soaked us. Had to stop and pour the water out of our kayaks. We both found our legs were a little uncomfortable being stretched out. If you put your knees up, it makes it a little more difficult to paddle. Because of these things, I'm glad our trip didn't go much longer. I think we were about 2.5 hrs. The timing just depends on how much you paddle and if you decide to bring a lunch! Would we do it again? Of course we would! We might even purchase our own kayaks .

This new kayak rental to ride the Sandy river through Pikeville and the cut through was great fun! The river was low, so there are some small rapids ~ that only extend part way across the width ~ due to rocks and tires. Suitable for all ages, you can kayak gently using the river flow to guide you, or you can actively paddle and get some cardio exercise. Mostly exposed to the sun, which actually made the trip better. The scenery is pleasant and pretty - trees, river banks, some rock faces. The river runs beside the road, so you will hear some traffic - not a lot. The employees are happy and pleasant and helpful. We never could get anyone to answer the telephone when we called though. The zipline looks like a lot of fun too.
