This is probably the question that we get asked the most. Its impossible to answer because it really depends on your fitness. The fastest guest we have had has completed it in 48 minutes. The slowest nearly 3 hours. Anything under one hour is considered good. The average time for our guests tends to be 75 minutes and the time to beat is that of the singer Sheryl Crow who competed it in 90 minutes.
