This was my & my husband's first time on a zip line. It was an enjoyable experience and going over the lake makes it such a beautiful, scenic ride. We purchased the combo pass, so also rode the Steam Punk balloon. The staff was very nice!

This ride was a lot of fun! I would do it again. The others with me also enjoyed it. However, I felt that it was unsafe in the fact that it had no safety bar to hold on to.

"Not worth the money"

Reviewed September 23, 2018
The zip line was very fun. My husband actually liked it even though I had to talk him into doing it. BUT, we paid 50.00 for us to ride it to and from the top of the hill. No more than one and a half minutes at the most. One time. NOT WORTH THE MONEY. Very expensive for what you get.

Great time with a great view. The unlimited ride combo pass with the Ateam Punk ride is well worth it.

"Zipline Ride Over The River"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed August 03, 2018
We purchased the unlimited all day combo zipline/steampunk balloon pass, so we could do the activity various times during the day, coming and going as fit our schedule. The zipline is scenic, fast and fun. You load two at a time into seats. You are then hoisted backwards up over the river and up the riverbank. Upon release and speed back across the river landing where you departed. The line for the ride moves pretty quickly, especially if they have both lines going. Definitely purchase the unlimited pass if you have the time. It is the best value if you want more than one ride or a ride on the zipline and steampunk balloon.
