  • See details at Mandatory Reservation with nwtrek 24 hours in advance. Time is crucial. I am calling tomorrow to book the 11:00am start time. With a mandatory 24 hour reservation time required by NWTREK, your reservation MUST be made by that time.


    Nwtrek has 4 Zip line courses according to your level of comfort.
    Last summer I hosted the Adventure course. They now have a more advanced course called the sensation course. You can see it in the Select one of the 4 according to your comfort Level. Having done the adventure course, I'm ready to step it up a notch and do the Sensation-Extreme course.
    Nwtrek requires you to register 24 hours in advance, so time is short. Check the nwtrek web site on registration details

    This is the last weekend that both the Adventure and the Sensation-Extreme course on the same weekend. If we don't make it this weekend, then a reschedule will include only the Sensation-Extreme course.

    In case you are confused about the total cost, first is the gate fee which grants you admission to the park. The tram that takes you to see the wildlife is no additional charge. Then (like an amusement park) there is the addional price for the zip line. To find out your total cost, start with the admission fee that applies to you, then add the course fee, and the total of that is your total cost.

    Probably the best plan just so we all don't end up with different start times is that we all just show up at the 12:15 start time. We are supposed to show up 30 minutes early which means 11:45. With parking, getting through the gate and then walking to the zip line course from their, we can add 15 fifteen minutes. So I am setting the meetup at the P&R for 10:30am with a departure time of 10:45

    Charlotte, which course were you planning on doing? There are different start times, so I need to know the start times of the course you get registered for so we can adjust the meetup time at the P&R. Are you willing to drive? If we are all doing the sensation course we either register online for 1:00pm or we just show up for the 12:15 start time for the sensation course;

    I have been trying to make a reservation online to no avail. I have called numerous numbers and all are recordings. I am afraid I won't meet the deadline.
