Extreme zip lining in St.Thomas

Recommended Posts

I know that they are back open & getting good reviews on trip advisor but looking for cruise excursion reviews. How extreme are these lines? We would have a first time never zip lined before person with us.

It's been a couple of years since I did this zipline, but I didn't think it was too extreme.  The only thing that was a little scary is that some of the lines require you to take a big step off the platform and it looks like you'll just fall.  It's not bad because you quickly stop going down...just makes you think twice before you actually step off.  The guides provide a safety briefing before leaving the check in area and they were very safety conscious throughout the trip. 

 

By the way, how did you find out they were open again?  We were just in St. Thomas in early Dec and was told they were still closed and it wasn't offered as a Carnival excursion.  Several years ago when I contacted the zip line company directly, I was told that I needed to go through the Carnival excursion because of their contract and couldn't DIY myself via a taxi.  Don't know if that's changed though.   

 

Hope this helps!

They came up on my TA search & one of the reviews was just a couple weeks old, so back open! 🙂
