"Four of us (over the age of 60) did the zip lining experience in New Britain, CT. It was great! The staff was excellent, very patient, informative and encouraging. After training, we were able to go through the course on our own, the sessions were well timed so that there was no one behind us, and we did not feel that we had to rush through the course. The course was fun and challenging, at times a bit intense, but we seniors got through it without a problem and felt very accomplished that we did! It was well worth the price. I would definitely recommend this course location -- it was in the woods and even on a hot day we were fine with plenty of shade, plus they had water at each station. There was plenty of free parking and a bathroom."
