Tyler was the best guide! Reall enjoyed this ziplining! The views were great! What an experience, will do it again.


The experience was great but be careful I got ripped off by the company: I was quoted a fixed price for 2 events and 2 weeks after I paid for the fixed and agreed by contract price I was asked to pay double what I was quoted and they debited my credit card without talking to me ! I am appalled by this behaviour and no one would call to explain. Do not leave your credit card details to these guys as they will just take your money without asking you!

Had a great time at Idaho Springs. Squirt was our rafting guide and she was great. Danielle and Clay took me zip lining and it was just as fun.


Tim and Brian were AWESOME! Amazing views from the top of the mountain and we never felt unsafe. Highly recommend!


We recently did the zipline adventure in Idaho Springs and our guides, Jess & Otter, were fantastic! I HIGHLY recommend this tour and crew because we had an awesome time.


Cancelled days before, massive inconvenience for us. They should offer partial refund and a replacement trip (or discount off other trip) if that happens, not just offer to book you for something else. Not even remotely apologetic about the inconvenience. When asked why we weren’t getting some discount or partial refund, response was “we have to be profitable”.


AMAZING! Exciting and fun adventure! Everyone here is nice and wonderful, made me feel completely comfortable. Eric was our rafting guide and Otter and Jess were our ziplining guides.


Had a blast! It was my first time rafting and first time zip lining and the guides (Seth and Eric for rafting, Tim and Randi for zip lining) made it a memorable and fun experience. We ended up having to add an extra person to our group at the last minute and the staff was super helpful and managed to make it work. Highly recommend!


A group of 8 of us came all the way from Wisconsin to Idaho Springs and had a blast ziplining with Martina and Otter! Thank you guys so much for making us laugh, keeping us confident, and most importantly ensuring we were safe! I am extremely scared of heights but they made sure I had fun! Thanks again. Will be recommending ziplining in Idaho Springs for sure.


Spencer and Simon were the best guides we could have asked for! They were very knowledgeable and fun!
