Scenic Caves Nature Adventures is for the young and the young at heart. Running shoes or hiking boots are a must for a spending a day here. To be very honest, the Scenic Caves were not for someone like me with a back injury, but I certainly made the most out of what I was able to enjoy. However, for my very able-bodied children this was an awesome destination, which they loved and haven't stopped talking about since we got back home. (my review is based on their observations, as most I didn't see first hand)

Nature Trails, Caves, Caverns & Lookouts
Deep inside Blue Mountain at the highest part of the Niagara Escarpment are the Scenic Caves. The caves were once carved out by glacial ice and reveal secrets of our past. The trails to the caves were well marked, and the caves were easy to explore. The kids loved seeing the flora and fauna of the area and seeing the caves. It is a surreal feeling, yet very peaceful.
Thunder Bird ~ Canada's Longest Twin Zip Line
The Thunder Bird is a half mile zip line, which can be controlled by the rider to determine their own speed.
My children were incredibly keen to get a chance to go down the zip line. (I was nervous at the thought of it, but knew it would be an experience they would never forget.) I was really impressed to see that everyone is given instruction on a practice zip line before doing the real thing.

It was absolutely a thrill of a lifetime and something both kids would love to do again, sometime soon!
