I live in Boston and didn't even know that we had nearby zip lining until looking on TripAdvisor. Zoar was awesome! Easy registration, great instructors, and a fun, almost three hour course. We had an awesome time and I can't wait to go back!

At first I was very scared on doing this. I am one who is not good with roller coasters or heights, and I am one of THOSE Moms who questions everything. But Rubin and Wayne where TERIFFIC with me. They where very patient and took their time with me. By the time we hit the 3 zip, I was relaxed... More

I was part of a group of sixteen who ranged in age from 11 upwards. We went in November 2016 on a warm and sunny day. We were split into two groups of eight. It takes just over three hours to complete the course which consists of eleven zip lines, three rapels and two rope suspension bridges. My group was... More

I cannot begin to express the level of service we received when coming back to Zoar Outdoor (again). I am a hospitality major, and I know good service when I see it. ALL of Zoar staff consistently go out of their way to accommodate you. Our first trip was in April for my boyfriend's birthday, I bought him the package... More

We went white water rafting on the Dry Way for my birthday on Columbus Day weekend. We had a group of eight and weren't sure about how it would be since a few in the group had never been white water rafting before. It turned out to be awesome! Our guide was Tim who was very knowledgeable, and did an... More

I was a bit scared starting this, but I always felt safe, even though I am normally afraid of heights. Anytime we were not on the ground we were securely double-linked onto the equipment. The whole thing took over 3 hours: 11 progressively increasing zips, 3 rapels, and 2 suspension bridges. In a group of 8, the youngest was 16... More

Relax and stay at the lodge right on site after an exciting zip line adventure. I personally love the Miller room. Comfy bed. Towels provided. Cute desk and loveseat in the room. There is a small shared bathroom but it does the trick with hot water and good water pressure. We went about 10 minutes up the road the shelburn... More

This was my 4th time zip lining in different locations throughout New England and Hawaii. My friend had no experience. Their course is a really good one with progressively more challenging zips. The course has a total of 11 zips, 3 rapels, and 2 suspension bridges. The guides are all about safety and education first - and, of course, fun!... More

The 3 hour zip-line tour is terrific. They have a strong emphasis on safety. The views are terrific and the sense of speed is great without being overwhelming. This is for adults and the age ranges were well into the 60's in our group.
