If you are looking for a fun day with friends and some amazing views while doing it, I would highly recommend doing the Ziplining with Vertical Illusions. Be prepared for a nice hike through nature to get your experience started. As we walked through nature, Easton gave us a lot of facts about the area including a fact that some... More

Went ziplining with my husband and our friend. It was the first time ziplining for all three of us. Our guides Jacob and Micah were amazing. They thoroughly explained everything to us and made us feel comfortable. I have a huge fear of heights and they were patient and reassuring that it was all secure. They were very personable and...

I’ve zip lined twice in life, both times in 2016. I’ve done Bigfoot first and then Vertical Illusions. I enjoyed them both, but I really enjoyed the personal relationship and intimacy with nature at VI. Bigfoot is fun, adrenalin-pumping and less expensive, but they kind of run you through like cattle since it’s a high volume operation. Easton and Katie... More

It was such an amazing experience! I HIGHLY recommend it to any beginners or to those who have kayak'd before. Our guide, Micah, was very friendly, nice, and accommodating. He took u, my bf and I, to some great spots on the WI river and guided me (a beginner) through some rough waters. As well as, tell us stories and... More

We had an amazing time! This is the best zip lining course you will find. We had the pleasure of having the owner be our guide and he is one cool dude! We couldn't go on the tour at their standard times, but they made it work so we could go a little later in the day. They were more... More

Our family of five decided to try ziplining and didn't have high expectations as most of the attractions in the Dells these days are over commercialized. Vertical Illusions is one of those rare off the beaten path activities that gets back to the heart of the Dells- the natural beauty of the environment that originally drew people to this area....

WE had a GREAT time on our zip line tour with our family of 7, ages 9-64. Our guides Jacob & Sarah were fun and knowledgable- and funny! The course is beautiful and NOT like a sideshow attraction. It took a good 3 hours to complete! The hike to the top was a nice bonus that we weren't expecting- gorgeous... More

This was amazing, one of the best zip lines adventures that I have ever done. It is more of an experience then a ride kind. You go out hike the woods get to talk to the guides about nature and ride 14 zip lines to get back down. If we are ever in area will do it again. Thank you... More

This was a wonderful zipline experience. Traveling a half hour away from the central Dell area, my 16 year old nephew and I (62 years) thoroughly enjoyed this adventure. The initial hike up the mountain was good exercise, but totally worth the trip down on 14 different zip lines. The guides, Alli and Rianna were wonderful! I enjoyed being away... More

Probably the best combination of adventure and fun in the entire dells area. We did the ziplines and enjoyed every zipline. This was the most unique thing we've done in a long time! The guides are knowledgeable, energetic and safe. Definitely recommend!!
