We had a lot of fun on this adventure, in spite of the rain (which was a downpour)! The course is really cool and well constructed. Even in the incremental weather, we felt very safe. Having access to rain jackets was a real plus!!! Sage and Bret were our guides and they did a great job keeping it light and fun (even in the weather conditions). Wish it were sunny but hey, still worth the drive to Hawi.

"Amazing adventure"

First of all, our guides were fantastic. The location is amazing. We had to drive from the office in a crazy looking vehicle that held 9 people, a driver and two guides. That was even cool. The course is way up in this beautiful jungle. The guides were so safe and they took great care of everyone. The zip lines were super fun. The bridges were amazing and terrifying (I don’t actually like heights). There were 9 zip lines and 5 bridges. I honestly, terrifyingly, loved each one. Great trip. Great experience.
