This was a great place for our family! We had a blast! Alpine slide and extreme zip were our favorites! My husband was brave enough to do the extreme tubing! My son did the obstacle course and free drop! We will definitely be back, next summer!
Totally worth the waits and fun! Neat that Olympics were held here and how they converted times to a fun park for little kids (mine was on the younger side at 6 years old). Big kids / adults can enjoy the super fast tubing and zip lines! Wear close toe shoes, sunblock, hat, and camera! Bring water or buy their power aid. Entertaining but at a fee… For my daughter and I, purchased individual tickets instead of a package– paid a total of 90$. She’s 6 and can only handle so many hours of fun before she gets hot and cranky. Spent about 4 hours here. Prepare to walk/ hike a bit, there’s a shuttle but you’re outside… Just walk… Loved it here! Will return for sure.
Love love love it here! I always have a good time watching the hockey game. And the introduction of the food truck on Wednesday makes the night perfection 🙂
Coming here a bit late in the day we only had time to try out two experiences and the Canyon ropes course plus the Alpine slide were our choices. The place is big but surprisingly not too bad to get around to the different activities (and the shuttle helps save at least a little time going between the two extreme sides).
We started at the Canyon course and being new to a ropes experience for all of us it was challenging, fun, and scary all at the same time. There was only one of us that needed help and the staff did a great job getting them through the course without worries.
From there on to the slide… The ski lift up is nice in itself and the ride down is a lot of fun. Again, it is something that none of us had experienced before but hearing the comments from those who have it seems to really be one of the better experiences of its type around. It would be more of a blast if I could ride it again — something for next time — since the first time around you are mostly trying to get a handle on everything and figure out what is a safe speed. Also, a comment on speed — to go fast you really need to push the brake all the way forward to do so because keeping it in the ‘neutral’ position still slows you down!
