Three girlfriends & I traveled to Brown County to celebrate a milestone birthday by doing something out of our comfort zone. We signed up for a 2 hr zipline & while there, realized one friend was just as frightened of heights as I was. My 2nd friend was also a rookie & our other friend previously did a zip line, in Ohio. She was instrumental in convincing us to try it...and I have to say, we can't stop thanking her...it was an AWESOME experience ! Our fearless leaders with eXplore, Roo & Zach, made the entire adventure a total blast ! Both guys were not only entertaining, they were extremely patient, kept us calm, relaxed & laughing, which definitely helped me overcome my fear. "Thank you" to the employees who assisted with the reservation process & the zip leaders....all were professional, patient & helpful...and most of all, fun ! We will be back again within the next 12 months to enjoy another ride in the sky!

My Girlfriend & I have now been to Valley Branch 3 times for Zip Line tours. The first was The Superman & the past 2 times The Screamer. We have brought our parents with us the past 2 times & actually gave them gift certificates at Christmas for our latest visit. The guides were awesome all 3 visits. The guides this time were Eric & Nate. Both were absolutely awesome. I have and will continue to tell anyone I know who is considering Zip lining this is the place to go! A very satisfied customer. I give the entire experience a 10 + Thanks Again! Paul Miller - May 14, 2015

“Night Flight” - Reviewed November 4, 2014

Had friends from out of town and was looking for something to do on a cold November 1st night. Bill and Tim our Zip guides did an outstanding job. Our friends had zipped in Costa Rica and preferred these lines over that zip. The crisp air, the moon shining on the lake, zipping into a dark abyss, and so many giggles- truly a night to remember!!! GREAT time!!!!! Thank you Bill and Tim!!!!!! Visited November 2014

“The best Birthday zipline every”

Reviewed May 7, 2015

Our 80 year old mother wanted to zipline for her birthday! We did a lot of searching and decided on Explore Brown County. It was the best decision we've made in months! the There were 10 in our group. Eric and Brittany were our guides and from the minute we started assembling gear until we turned it all in a few hours later-we were treated with respect and understanding AND with a sense of fun and adventure. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to try it for the first time OR is seasoned. We WILL go back. Visited May 2015
