Definitely a thrill. Well organized and runs efficiently with minimal down time. Minimal walks or rides between the various stations. You feel more and more confident with each of the rides. On my last ride I purposefully jumped and flipped before the harness engaged and then ran upside down for 80% of the trip, just like I saw the trip... More

Loved the relaxation after the Zip Line Adventure, we just wish the water wasn't so low, but by no means was this the fault of Foxfire

The bridge itself is not nearly as long as pictures show it to be. But it's a very nice bridge and fun to walk across and take pictures. On the side of the bridge that you enter in, there's a neat little garden with a wishing well and a covered little building where you can pick up papers to write... More

Me and my wife hiked both trails, one goes up the mountain to the falls [ a great place to cool off ] and the other is the river bank walk which goes by a pasture with lamas and a Bull with horns as big around as i've ever seen. The trail also goes through a little obstacle course that... More

This is a great place to bring kids. A bit expensive, but a great way to spend the day hiking or zip lining. We went across the prosperity bridge and hiked along the river. A great place to get away from the hustle bustle of the city.

We definitely had a great time with our tour guides Stormee and Patrick. They were great in making sure we felt safe and comfortable. Everyone seemed to enjoy working there. We bought our zip line tickets online and since this was a first time experience for us, we decided to buy the pictures with it. After the tour was over... More

We loved the little rope obstacle course...we laughed so hard at each other we were in tears! The walk to the waterfall was shaded and my kids loved it! It was a great trip for something to do in the morning before lunch. A little on the pricey side.
