Liz and Emma were our fabulous guides for the zip line and obstacle course package. They met all of our skill levels and were genuinely enthusiastic about helping us get the most out of our experience. I (48 yo) and my three daughters (14, 14, and 12) really enjoyed it and will go back again.I wish we knew if it was appropriate to tip the guides at the end of the experience because they definitely earned it!

We really enjoyed our time at this family friendly pool. It was clean and well organized. They have nice chairs to use at pool side. The area to eat was well kept. The pool was kept clean. My 4 year really enjoyed the kiddy pool side with the sprinklers. We didn’t experience any type of rowdy horseplay in the pool to which my son was able to practice on learning to float and my 15 year old did learn to float. As my son played at the playground, I sat on the wooden swings and enjoyed the serenity of this place. May the good Lord continue to bless this place and the employees.

I just finished my very first zip line course. I have a fear of heights so while I was excited to try something new I could also feel the fear of having to step off the platform. Our guides were great and kept everyone at ease. They made sure we were all safe, our equipment was fitted properly and that we were secure at all times. All of the staff that I came across while at RM was super helpful and friendly. I would definitely go back, do the zip line again and also try a few other adventures!

My son's 10th birthday was held here. Every single employee who I interacted with was happy, kind, and did everything they could to make our experience incredible. The facility has a lot of fun options for kids of all ages and it is clean and safe. I cannot say enough about the employees. They are clearly trained incredibly well and go above and beyond in thoughtfulness and hospitality.

Staying at Refreshing Mountain is always a treat! I love staying on the mountain. Their cabins were very nice and peaceful. There was a little bit of miscommunication whether we were permitted to swim in the pool on same day after check out. We were told we were, but the same was not communicated to the life guards, but it was handled well. The high Ropes staff were pleasant and helpful.

We had a wonderful time at Refreshing Mountain. We were on the zip lines and the challenge course. It was clean, the people working with us were cheerful and polite, and very safety conscious. It’s our third time there and we are never disappointed in the quality and kindness.

It was the first time zip lining for two people in our party. One being a nine-year-old girl. Josh and Luke did a great job making everyone feel comfortable and eased the fears! After two zip lines, my granddaughter was loving it! Would definitely go back if I’m in the area again.

Our family had a wonderful time here from beginning to end. We chose the 2 zip line Flying V package that included the 2 level obstacle course, climbing tower, pedal karts, sling shots, wildlife center and other activities. The staff are very friendly and extremely helpful and facilities are incredibly well maintained. We would definitely consider traveling back to work through the 5 or 9 zip line tour.

We did the aerial excursion course with our 9 year old grandson and had a great time. This was our first visit to the center, and we were impressed with how clean and well maintained the property is. Our guides—Daniel and Aileen—were professional, friendly and fun. We will definitely go back.

This place is amazing! It was well-organized and very clean. I would definitely recommend it for families. I went with my two older sons (12 & 16) just for the activities-we’re from out of state, so we didnt know about the camping. But, we got the basecamp package and it was plenty to do during the time slot we selected. We did the obstacle course, rock climbing wall, pedal carts, and the other activities in the package- but those were my favorites. We ended up adding ziplining onto our package while we were there which was an absolute blast! All the employees were extremely friendly and helpful with anything we needed. They seemed to genuinely enjoy working there. Overall, it was a great experience. We will definitely go back!

I brought my family here and they enjoyed every bit of it. We traveled 8 hours to get here from New Hampshire, and my daughters want to go back already. Clean facilities, safe and engaging environment with the absolute friendliest staff.

FAQs

What Is A Zipline Canopy Tour?

A Zip Line Canopy Tour is a series of cables and platforms that take you on an exhilarating tour through forests and wildlife. Canopy Tours were originally created to study different plant life and trees. Now it has become much more about the exciting “ziplining” experience. However, we still try and show the forest and wildlife from a perspective you’ll never forget!

Explore All Zipline Tours and Adventures

Is Ziplining Safe?

Your safety is our top priority. Each zipline tour is facilitated by at least two tour guides who have been through extensive training. They will take care of every safety-related detail on the course, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the rides. Our courses are registered with the PA Department of Agriculture Rides and Measurements Bureau, and they meet/exceed the design standards of ACCT (Association for Challenge Course Technology). One of our guides does a daily “run-through inspection,” a state-certified inspector does a monthly inspection, and once a year, a certified third-party inspector does an inspection. All of our courses use a brake design system that the industry recognizes as the safest approach to braking. Each line is “dialed in” to allow gravity to work as a natural brake. Each line also has a “backup” brake mechanism controlled by our staff, so the participant does not need to worry about slowing themselves down. We use a patented braking/retrieval system called a ZIPKea on each zip line.

Learn more about our Zipline Safety Procedures

Should We Tip The Tour Guides?

There is no tipping expected. There will be at least two guides with your group for the duration of the event, and you can expect that they will be highly professional and safety-conscious. They will take good care of your group through the experience, whether you tip them or not! 

What Physical Condition Should I Be In To Participate?

Participants do need to be reasonably fit to participate by the nature of the event. Please see the Activities Release and Waiver Form for more details on this. Still, in general, participants should be able to carry 20-30 lbs of weight without difficulty, climb a flight of stairs, stand without assistance, walk over uneven terrain up and down a moderate slope. See the question below on age, weight, and height restrictions for more detail.

What Are The Age, Weight, And Height Restrictions For The Activities?

For all of our “high adventure” activities, individual riders must be at least 5 years old. All participants can NOT exceed 280 lbs. At the zipline guide’s discretion, any rider under 60 lbs may need to ride tandem with a guide on certain lines.

 

Children 12 and under MUST be accompanied by an adult to complete the zip line courses; the Aerial Excursion and Challenge Adventure Course ratio is 1 adult per 3 children. An adult is defined as a person over the age of 18+.

Can I Just Show Up For A Tour?

No. You should schedule a tour ahead of time. If you just show up, and we have space available, we will gladly fit you in, but we sell out of space regularly, plus we have specific start times. People that show up without a reservation generally don’t get to go through the course. You can book online or call us at 1-888-353-1490.

How Do I Make A Reservation?

You can book online or call us at 1-888-353-1490. We will need to know:

  • What date(s)/time(s) you are interested in
  • How many people to expect
  • Your credit card information will be required to finalize the reservation (full payment is due at the time of reservation).
Are Photos Or Videos Available For Purchase? Do You Rent GoPro’s?

We offer Viewpoint Rentals starting at $29 per camera for one tour with discounts if you rent multiple cameras (plus 6% sales tax).
Rentals are handled on a first-come, first-served basis and can be reserved at the time of reservation or when you check-in at our office. 

Rental includes the use of the camera for the duration of the tour.

Cameras are forward mounted on helmets and can record live video in 1080 HD at 60 fps or still images at 5 megapixels.
Our staff maintain and set up the equipment and are available to assist you as needed.

Following your experience you will receive a QR code to access your video. You will have 30 days to download to your devices.

Can I Bring A Camera/Camcorder Along With Me?

Yes, but it must be secured to your wrist, or we can attach it to your harness using the wrist strap. We do not allow you to wear cameras or anything around your neck for safety reasons. Also, if you choose to bring your equipment, you should recognize that there is a possibility that it could be damaged on tour. So whatever you bring is at your own risk. It is essential to secure it to your person for the tour.

What If I Need To Cancel Or Change My Reservation?

Full Payment is due with the reservation. Up to 3 days before the start time, customers can 1) change the tour date/time at no cost, 2) cancel the current booking and receive Store Credit for the full value of the cancellation, or 3) cancel the current booking and receive a refund minus the booking fee. Within 3 days, no changes are possible and there are no refunds for cancellation, except in cases of inclement weather. We are rain or shine, but if we determine inclement weather would affect the comfort and/or safety of the guest or guides (ex: high winds, lightning, heavy downpour, extreme temperatures, etc…), customers will have the option to re-schedule at no cost or receive store credit. COVID-19 AMENDMENT. Any guest(s) that feel unwell prior to their tour should call the office to re-schedule. Full value of the amount paid will be posted forward as store credit for a new date, and no fees will be assessed on the schedule change.

What Happens If I Start The Tour And Don’t Want To Finish?

In this situation, you will be billed for the full event. However, you do not need to finish the tour. The course is “Challenge By Choice,” so if you feel that you cannot continue, our tour guides will do their best to encourage you to continue on with the tour or they will make accommodations to get you off the course. You will then need to walk from that point back to the starting point. We want you to have a positive experience at our environmentally-friendly canopy tour.

Can I Add Other Activities To The Event?

Yes, Refreshing Mountain offers an array of other activity options, and there are often discounts available if you add them to your day before or after ziplining. Check out this page to learn more about our Wildlife Center, Giant Swing, Climbing Tower, Escape Rooms, and many other activities.

Please call our Front Desk at 1-888-353-1490 to help with booking; otherwise, discounts may be available for online bookings.

Can I Make This Into An Overnight Trip?

Yes. We offer very cozy cabins suites for up to 8 people and tent sites if you want something more rustic. For groups of 20+ people, see our information on Large Group Retreats for additional options.
