25 Oct Experience Outdoors:
Lake Placid, NY
I thought I knew how much fun zip lining is. Well, my definition of FUN was redefined once we visited Experience Outdoors zip lines. Joining a two hour tour to zip down the 6 zip lines on Scott’s Cobble Mountain was our all-time favorite. After gearing up with harness, helmet and gloves we were driven up the mountain on an ATV. Family members that did not ride the zip line were also driven up and they were able to watch the fun from a path below the line. The views of the Great Range Mountains, including the Olympic Bobsled Track, were breathtaking and they can be enjoyed throughout the whole time.
We enjoyed a training session with the two fun tour guides who advised everyone and made sure everyone would be safe and comfortable. They looked out for every rider throughout the whole tour. Their sense of humor kept us laughing! We were finally able to take off once everyone was comfortable with the training.
The zip lines made us feel as if we were flying from one part of the mountain to the other. In addition to the zipping and magnificent views there were also two places where you can rappel; once in the middle of the mountain, and once at the end.
Everyone in our group had a time of their lives. As we were leaving my kids were already asking when we can return again.
