What people are saying:

  • This was super fun, again both giving us so much confidence, and support…all while having some great laughs! Not only were Dan and Julia so hard working, so informative, so into safety…but they were so much fun too. They weren’t just our guides, they were like part of the group 🙂 We will definitely be back to try some other adventures and have more fun! Thanks so much you guys!

  • On behalf of the StubHub Quality Assurance Team, I would like to say thank you for a day of experiences that we will reflect on for some time. To say that we enjoyed ourselves is by far an understatement. We not only had fun, but the EMPOWER team gave us an opportunity to look at ourselves collectively and individually in a safe, challenging, and extremely rewarding setting!

  • We did a Moonlight Zip last weekend and it was incredible! I have been driving past Empower for years and had no idea what a great place it was. We were out there for about two hours with no lights in the dark. It was such a thrill!!!

  • EMPOWER has always run great staff training for my summer camp staff. What a great way to get them working together, get to know each other, learn about their own strengths and weaknesses, and how the balance out as a group. They also learn how to lead and handle certain situations through the power of play and challenge. I think my staff looks at things differently when they leave and they are fired up for the summer camp season!

  • I cant say enough good things about this place, the people who own are phenomenal. The staff is beyond awesome. It’s very well kept and maintained. Great for bday partys or corporate events. I have no connection with anyone there, was there for a corporate event and had a blast. Was very impressed!!!

  • EMPOWER is a great experience, the staff and facility are excellent; very challenging but also within anyone’s ability to complete. The zip line adventure and leadership skills courses were top notch. Highly recommend EMPOWER!

  • EXCELLENT!!! My boyfriend and I came from Long Island for a weekend celebrating our 4-year anniversary and stopped here for a fun time and it sure was! We were guided by Lucas and Eric who were well trained, knowledgeable, and super friendly. They provided clear directives and kept our safety well assured throughout the entire experience. We did the ziplining course as well as the two physical challenges with the ropes. We’re pretty out of shape, but still got through the challenges with the trustworthy guidance the staff provided. The entire experience was exhilarating, and SO much fun!! Thank you!

  • So my family and I decided to go on an adventure that would make some amazing memories. But we had no idea the fun, crazy, challenging, fantastic afternoon we would have at Empower! Dan and Julia are fabulous guides!! Dan spent the entire time with us, supporting us, pushing us to our limits, and making us laugh! What an outstanding day we had!
