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.

We had a spectacular time celebrating my daughter’s birthday on the zip line and rope courses. Our guides Haley and Anika were reassuring, motivating, and gave us confidence that we were secured and safe as we battled our fears and conquered the course! It was as exhilarating and lots of fun!
We did the zipline and ropes course for a Bachelorette party. It was a wonderful experience and time well spent together! Our instructors were wonderful!

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!

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.

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?
  • All activities have a maximum weight of 280 pounds.
  • For most of the “high adventure” activities, individual riders must be at least five years old. 
  • An adult MUST accompany children under 13 for the Challenge and Aerial Excursion. For other activities, an adult need only be present. Please see the AGE RATIO GRID for specifics.
