We just returned home and decided to take a pic trip back over the last 27ish years of photos and found these beauties...while the island was in such a sad state, the beauty we found in our zipline experience was worth sharing.

It's a view I will never see (scared to death of zip lines) so thanks for sharing.

lcote--I won't ever see it in person either. We went on a ski lift in Germany one time and I thought I was not going to survive the experience!

my daughter and friend are seeking info as they plan to do this zip line on next visit. I wish I had the nerve, but I think that I would chicken out at the top, lol My question is,,obviously you have to get to the top to get on, but where do you end up, and do you have to arrange a ride at the bottom?

You might want to have them research it more. My daughter and son in law were there yesterday. They waited at the top for close to 2 hours to take the zipline and then they ended up closing it due to winds. They took the chair down and are now disputing the charges as they refused to issue any refunds. No food available at the top. Only alcoholic beverages. Lots of negative reviews on the internet too.

I'm confused, if it was closed, how did they take the chair down?

As I said they closed the Zipline not the chair to the bottom.

OK, I guess I don't know the difference between the 'chair' and the zipline. What is the 'chair'?? The one picture looked like people were taking the zipline.

You take the chair to get from the bottom to where the Zipline starts on the top. It's like a chair on a ski slope that transports you to the top on a rum.
