I brought a group of seniors to Empower and we had a great experience Zip lining. The staff is the best!! They made sure that all of our equipment was safely fastened and answered all of our questions. I recommend Empower to everyone.

Zip lining was something my Mom has been wanting to do – she’s in her 70’s. The staff was patient, encouraging, reassuring, and supportive throughout the entire experience. We all had a fantastic time. Watching my mother have such a great time was a fantastic memory.

Our group of 5 ranged in ages from 11 – 45. Our youngest was very nervous at the start but quickly gained confidence. She was so proud at the end for completing it! During all aspects of the course, especially the tougher elements (tightrope) the guides gave thorough explanations and were very enthusiastic and supportive. We went in mid Sept. before the leaves have really started changing. I imagine that doing the zipline through the canopy during peak foliage must be amazing. We would definitely go back.

Another great experience!! This is the second time I have taken my family from out of state. The first time we went, they loved it so much we decided to go back and it is becoming an annual tradition. The staff was excellent in making the younger ones feel confident and comfortable and were very interactive, making the entire experience especially fun and memorable. We will for sure be coming back.

I brought my 13yr old grandson here when he was visiting from California. We had a blast! The guides were knowledgeable as well as entertaining. They guided each of us to an enjoyable and rewarding experience. I would absolutely recommend visiting for an amazing experience!

Absolutely fantastic! Super safe, fun, and challenging. A great facility that is easy to get to and the staff was friendly, helpful, professional, very diligent about safety, while making it fun. I found the safety equipment and procedures to be top notch and flawless. We had a great experience at EMPOWER and will be coming back for their other programs. Highly recommended!

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

By far one of the best adventure places I have been to. Staff was prompt and very thorough. I don’t think I have met more patient and happy staff in my life. I drove 2 hours for an adventure and that is what I got. Our tour guides made sure we were having fun while keeping us safe. Thank you for an awesome and well spent time!

Great place! There were 12 of us and we were celebrating a bachelor party and we decided to come to EMPOWER. First we did the zip lining and it was great – we zipped through 5 lines of varying lengths and also did the broken bridge and tight-rope obstacles. We also did the tree climbing and the scavenger hunt activity – which was great because we traveled to get clues, accrue points and, ultimately, defeat our adversaries; lol. The service and friendliness of the staff was top notch. They made us feel comfortable and were having a good time along with us as well as guiding us through a fun, safe experience. I would absolutely recommend EMPOWER to anyone looking for adventure and a good time with a group of friends.

A truly uplifting experience with my team and co-workers. A tremendous thank you to the EMPOWER staff. Your positive energy, knowledge, and encouragement turned a cloudy, damp day into one of the brightest team building experiences I’ve ever had. Thank you again.

EMPOWER has always run great staff training for my summer camp. 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 challenges. My staff looks at things differently when they leave and they are fired up for summer camp season!

Never thought I was capable of zip lining. Did not even have intentions of trying it. Five zips and two bridges later…I feel EMPOWERED! Staff was AWESOME!!! Thank you for taking such good care of our teachers and staff.
