The pool was a great time. Lots of fun was had. It is clean and tidy. Probably wouldn’t have blocked a second block of time had we known the daycare/camp children were there. It was quite busy. For me that was overwhelming. We will go again though. The whole place is beautiful overall.

My friends and I (all in our late 50!s) came for the zip lining and obstacle course. We had soooooo much fun! I must admit that I got quite nervous and a little scared, waiting my turn and a sweet guy named Nick kept talking to me until it was my turn and kept my mind off of how high up I was. I could never thank him enough for that! I loved the fact that this is a Christian run organization! Thank you so much for having a place that is so much fun With Christian beliefs! We will definitely be back next year on our next girls trip. Thank you so much for an amazingly fun day!

My family and I came for the first time and we will definitely be back! Such a family friendly environment and lots of fun to do. Every employee was so welcoming, helpful, caring, and encouraging. My seven year old was scared to zip line and backed out last minute when we all went, then at the very end of the day he told us he was ready, so we asked if it was possible for us to go again, and without even thinking about it, the employees went out of their way to set up the zip line, just so he could face his fear! We will definitely be returning and will talk very highly about this place to those around us!

We had a great day with lots of fun and excitement. We did the obstacle course, the aerial zip lines, the climbing wall and the escape room. It is difficult to pick a favorite. We had a group ranging in age from 18-54 and all of us had a great time. Everybody we interacted with was smiling and happy share information. Thank you to Andrea, Joel, Tim and the ladies at the 319 Cafe. You all made our day a great day!!! Highly recommend the refreshing mountain activities.
