This was amazingggg! As a newbie, they were extra supportive, breaking up the heart flutters with hilarious jokes. Jane and Grace were super great guides. My friends and I really enjoyed the Tour (I forgot what its called)...the 5 zip line one. Guided gave us info from trees to scenery to the lines and history of the place. I will definitely be back in the spring.

Great customer service! Very eco-friendly. Check out the obstacle course/adventure park as well. The zipline course features about 5 zips. Although the highest is only about 85 high- it was still exciting!

Great first zipline experience. Beautiful, semi-shaded woods. Very nice guides that helped us feel at ease and made it lots of fun. Felt very safe and secure using their equipment. I’m hooked now and can’t wait to zip again. Highly recommended!!

Wow! The Adventure Park courses are challenging, even for the physically fit. I would highly recommend this for your next company outing. Great time for those who were participating, just as fun for those who watched from the below. Great way to get staff to overcome fears. ZipZone staff was very helpful getting our event organized and encouraging while we were on the course. Thanks for a great afternoon adventure!

It was absolutely life changing for the kids. They both started out fearful of the initial height of the first section of bridge, but with every step you could see them both getting braver. Its definitely a confidence builder to say the least. Also fun to witness, next time I will try it too.

I took my two boys to ZipZone for their birthday surprise and we had an absolute blast. The employees at ZipZone were great in showing us all the safety gear and helping u she’s started for our first time doing this. We chose to do the Adventure Park which also includes some zip lines. The obstacles were amazing and very challenging. We will definitely be going back.

My sister and I went on the zip tour last week and had so much fun! The guides were great at communicating as well as entertaining! Additionally, I felt they took all the necessary safety precautions to keep everyone safe. It was an enjoyable experience and a great way to see the beautiful outdoors!

Great adventure course and fantastic staff! highly recommend! The only word of caution is that a an athletic six or seven-year-old may feel a bit unchallenged in the kids park.

SO MUCH FUN! Guides Jerrod and Eli make you feel very comfortable, theyre knowledgable and made the entire time enjoyable (even for those that were afraid of heights). Gorgeous views and surprisingly a lot of wildlife! Were already planning another trip!

The Kids adventure park was a pretty awful experience for my 8-year old. We didnt realize that this is not a canopy tour style zip line, but truly an adventure course where each line has about a dozen obstacles, which necessitates the rider to clip in and out for each one. Obviously a benefit for safety, but my daughter weighs about 50 pounds and really had a hard time with the large heavy clips and buckles. It seems she was not alone because her training session with about 6-7 other girls took nearly an hour. The staff were kind and helpful as much as they could be, but this leads me to the worst part about this experience. Once your child starts the course, they get no help whatsoever. There is one staff member at the entry point, and then they are completely on their own. There were 2 or 3 staff scattered around but when my daughter was struggling the best they could offer were words of encouragement and verbal tips (this was after I had to run and find someone, because no staff member was actually watching her part of the course). Thats right, your child is 50 feet up in the air and unless YOU are watching them, they get zero help and the staff members NEVER TOUCH the safety clips. I assume this is deliberately set up so that the staff members and business are absolved of any legal liability if a customer is injured, but it is totally inexcusable. Even as an adult I would not be comfortable going on a course like this with zero staff up there available to help.The end result of this was that kids were getting stuck on the course and lines were building up, both on the platforms and on the zip lines themselves. So there is ZERO social distancing. I watched one kid get stuck for nearly ten minutes (he had a parent attempting to help as well). He was only about four feet off the ground but still when a staff member eventually ambled over, she gave some half-hearted advice and WALKED AWAY before he was even able to get his clip unstuck.Also the only bathrooms on site are porta-potties. If I could give this zero stars I would.

We had a fantastic time! I recommend this adventure for people 7 and older. The staff was super friendly and encouraging. We plan to get a season pass sometime so we can keep coming back! It was lots of fun and great exercise.

This was our first time here and we took our son, his friend and my daughter for his 9th birthday. My husband and I participated as well. It was so much fun. My son said it was the best birthday ever. The one thing I will say is that going from the yellow to green courses was fairly easy however the blue course was super difficult! I kind of wish they had warned us about it because my sons friend (age 8)didnt make it through (was lowered to ground by staff) and my son was crying on a couple of the transitions. The staff was super helpful in coaching us through it. We were super scared but my husband, daughter, son and myself made it to the end. The true blue lowering rope was so cool although my daughter had to give me a little push as I was too scared to jump off lol. Overall, it was super fun and we would definitely go back!

Review №17

Navigating the courses was challenging yet exhilarating. It woke up the inner ninja warrior in me. LoL! Great way to spend time with my kids! The only reason why I gave this place 2 stars is because of guest or customer services issue. Just a warning, the time indicated when you book the ticket is not the exact time that you will start your adventure. First you have to wait for other people to show up then listen to the demonstration so this can take up to 1 hr or more depending on the pace of the other people in the group. I was surprised that a staff declined snarkily when I asked if my family can go on another course. He said our time was up. I could have argued that it didnt start until an hour later so we should be allowed to go on another course. Another staff also snidely mentioned that my 9 year old should not be playing in the playground. He could have said it politely but he said it with such annoyance and authority, which is very unbecoming for a customer associate. I will write an email complaint so management knows that they should be more considerate and polite to their customers.

My 5 year old LOVES the kids park (ages 4-7). It is a great, safe way to go on an adventure while still staying physically distant from others. We like to come and climb for a while and also explore the nature nearby, too.Its especially great for my kiddo, who has some sensory processing challenges because he gets tons of vestibular and proprioceptive input while also having to plan and sequence his actions and practice self-control as he gets himself clipped into and out of the obstacles. Its cheaping than his OT appointments, too. I only wish he were a bit older, so we could do obstaclse together at the Adventure Park (ages 7+).

It was very fun and the staff was great. They emphasized safety and they were very patient with people that were scared. I will probably be back to do the adult course because I took the kids. Despite that it was a fun place if you enjoy outdoor adventures and activities.

Review №30

Excellent, challenging experience for adults and kids! I did the adventure course with 2 adult friends. Honestly thought we were signed up for traditional zip lining and didnt realize the mistake until we were on the adventure park lol. Im glad for the mix up because it was so much fun and probably not something I would have chosen if not by mistake. The adventure park is like an obstacle course while hooked to a line 50+ feet in the air. Im a 200 lbs female and was able to get through the yellow and green courses with no issue, but struggled with the more advanced blue course and didnt attempt the black course because of this. As the courses advance, some obstacles require good upper body strength. Even with that being said, I so enjoyed my time and would do it again. Will definitely be back for traditional zip lining. Spend the 45$ and take your friends or date for hours of fun! Dont forget to bring some water. Ive recommended this to so many friends already.

We did the canopy tour that started at 11 AM. The guides were extremely helpful, friendly and made the entire process feel safe. The bridges are fun and our guides gave some bonus challenges for each part of the tour. All the equipment and construction was in great shape and you can tell they take safety seriously. Absolutely a gem for central Ohio. Beautiful grounds and an exciting adventure.

Review №33

Awesome place to come with some friends, the staff is very helpful and there is options of easy and hard Zip-lines you can choose, if you want to do all I recommend it! a bet challenging but doable. It will take 2-3 hours depending on your speed.I recommend week days as well, because you can relax and do what ever you want.

The instructor was super friendly and thorough! Very fun and out of the box activity to do! I was there with a group of 22-27 year old adults but saw families and people of all ages there!The only reason I gave them 4 stars is due to the location, you have to make a u turn to find it! And the path to the “parking lot” is super narrow

Review №36

What an excellent time! We decided to stop here on our way to Hocking Hills Park. The girls (ages 7 & 8) both had a wonderful time. The instruction was very helpful, even with 2 different groups of people. The employee was a great help, especially patient/helpful with the girls. First we did a GREEN course. One girl loved it, the other not so much - we spent about an hour on that one. We then tried the BLUE course, which we turns around before the second element (that one is more of a physical course, there is no zipline). Instead we opted to do the YELLOW course, while a downgrade from the GREEN, it was very easy for both girls and still a challenge for the adults. The STAAAFF at the top of the treehouse (I think his name was Matt) he is a great guy, friendly, made conversation and helpful. The price was very reasonable for 2.5hrs of fun.We would definitely return, I think next time we would do the zipline tour.

Review №39

This place was unbelievable! I feel like if you’re going to do the canopy tour I would make sure that you work on your upper body strength a little bit, especially if you’re going to try a little bit of the harder courses. These guys are super safe, and made sure we were comfortable the entire way. I would say that you should double check to make sure you are under the 270 pound weight limit. Before you go.

I could have zipped all day long. Fantastic place!

Very good for outdoorsy kinds of activities. This place is good for exercise and getting a good workout. Has many levels to it so that you do not have to start at the hardest one. Easy levels and training included for first timers. Safety equipment is triple checked for safety precautions. There is a weight limit, but your weight will not be displayed in front of everyone.

Awesome experience for my whole family. Scheduling, payment, and waivers on their website was super easy. Reception when we got there was fast. The entire staff was friendly, helpful, and professional. Our guides, Jack and Noel, were amazing. Very knowledgeable and their narration really added to the tour. Our kids are 8 and 13 and the guides explained everything thoroughly. We felt safe and had an absolute blast throughout our entire experience. Thanks!

Review №55

This was the best of three Ive been to. They have a unique braking system where the guides control your stopping at each platform. I was skeptical that it would take away from the experience. It didnt take long to change my mind. It allows you to enjoy each, um, zip more. You dont have to stop enjoying the view to concentrate and judge your own slow down. You get to take more in while youre zipping from tree to tree. The guides are awesome. Well trained in this process. Highly recommend.

Review №56

Nice place, but they were hosting the Yo to the Bus reunion, and no one expected to have that many people there. I say great for small group of maybe 200 but when you get bout a four hundred families their to small. Hope we didnt mess up that beautiful lawn. I will be back to do the Zipline. Also, thank you for having us there even for the one time opportunity to enjoy the park, we underestimated the size of our group and the weather was not on our side. Maybe we can do something else with a smaller group in future.

Had an amazing time doing the aerial park adventure with my family. The time we were supposed to originally go on our adventure it started raining pretty hard so the very friendly and professional staff worked with us to reschedule our visit.I am pretty scared of heights but felt comfortable because the equipment was so secure. The money was more then worth the great time we had, we will definitely be back.

Its hard to imagine an outdoor adventure like a zipper in a busy city center like Columbus, but ZipZone Outdoor Adventures has done it. As a zipline tour, you can cross the treetops north of the city centre. These trips include canopy tours and moonlight tours as well as zipper tours that include a short free fall and rope experience. The ZipZone offers a children-friendly outdoor experience at the Children’s Park, including small adventures and an air park with challenging classes.

We had an awesome day at ZipZone! We went on Sunday 10/22/2017. We did the Canopy walk and zip lines. My husband and I took our Grandsons, ages 10 and 12. Our guides, Noah and Kyle were so much fun. I have been in Emergency medicine for close to 30 years and was very impressed with their constant concern for safety, and yet maintained a laid back attitude. Our youngest was a bit nervous, but the guys made him as comfortable as he could be. The equipment was all in excellent condition. We will return and highly recommend this park to anyone. Beautiful setting!

Great overall experience! Excellent facilities and equipment. Zip guides were very entertaining and accommodating. One young girl in our group was too scared to zip by herself or even with her own dad, so one of our guides took her tandem for the first 4 of 5 zip lines. By the final zip line he got her confidence up enough to do the last one by herself.
